National Bourbon Day

It's the most wonderful time of the year...at least it is in Kentucky! It's National Bourbon Day- a chance for bluegrass natives (or anyone who enjoys a good glass of bourbon) to celebrate one of our staples. Don't be fooled, bourbon isn't just the drink of choice in Kentucky; it has graced the global stage! Some say it is due to the small batch and single barrel bourbons making their appearances, while others say it has to do with the explosion in popularity of whiskey swilling characters. Do we have any Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire fans? Whatever the reason, we raise a glass of the sweetened amber as we celebrate its brilliance on National Bourbon Day!

Now we are left with the question, how can we celebrate while giving the recognition this Kentucky elixir deserves? On June 24, Woodford Reserve and Horse Country are partnering to create the perfect summer night with an exclusive tour of Coolmore at Ashford Stud, Woodford Reserve Distillery, and an under-the-stars screening of Secretariat. All of this paired with, you guessed it- boubron! Join us and embrace our proud Kentucky heritage of horses and bourbon!
