History of Woodford County Bourbon Tasting & Bourbon Pairing Dinner
Friday, March 20, 2020 • 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm • $45, includes guided tasting and pairing dinner. Cash bar available.
Did you know that the majority of the development of the modern Bourbon took place in Central KY? And that much of that work was done by residents and companies in Woodford County?
In this special tasting and lecture, we’ll explore the role our county played in growing Bourbon distilleries from small farm operations to major manufacturing; applying scientific methodologies to the processes; shaping food safety, worker safety and trademark laws; developing Bourbon tourism and even creating whole new categories of whiskeys in the United States.
After the tasting, we’ll enjoy a unique Bourbon pairing dinner crafted by Sparks’ Chef Isaiah Screetch.
*This event is sponsored by Distilled Living and is a fundraiser for Spark Community Café.
