The Kentucky Bourbon Affair™ is an intimate five-day fantasy camp featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes tours, private barrel selections and specialty events at the world’s most iconic distilleries, capped by evening events to highlight Louisville’s Bourbon culture and cuisine.

This year’s Affair will be held from June 3 to June 7 and will showcase nine distilleries: Bulleit, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Michter’s, Town Branch, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve.

The $1,500 Golden Ticket guaranteed recipients their first choice of three distillery tours plus opening and closing events; two nightcap tickets; the Sunday Polo waterfront brunch; a swag-filled toolkit; customized itinerary; and personalized service from a Bourbon Affair concierge.

Tickets to individual events range between $50 and $250. Many include souvenir bottles, Bourbon-inspired lunches and commemorative gifts. Transportation is also included in all ticket prices. “You can leave the driving to us,” Gregory said.

One session is already sold out – the Michter’s “Rare Tasting and Tour” on Saturday, Gregory said. “If today is any indication, Bourbon lovers better grab individual tickets while they can,” he said. “We’re very impressed and thankful for everyone’s support.”
