The Great Kentucky Bourbon Tasting & Gala

The Guthrie Opportunity Center, Home of Nelson County Industries (NCI), held the Great Kentucky Bourbon Tasting & Gala, the signature event of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, on Sept. 15.

Attendees began the evening by sampling the finest Kentucky Bourbons from eight distilleries and two brands, with a chance to meet Master Distillers and Ambassadors while gathering a collection of glassware in a Woodford Reserve tasting bag.

The black tie evening also included dancing, an official toast with 1792 Ridgemont Reserve Small Batch Bourbon, a gourmet Kentucky meal and a specialty dessert prepared with Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon.
