Bardstown to Host Virtual Weekend Celebration for ‘National Bourbon Day’

The ‘Bourbon Capital of the World’, Bardstown, Kentucky, is hosting a virtual celebration this Friday and Saturday in honor of National Bourbon Day, on June 14th! Bourbon Capital Community Alliance & Visit Bardstown have organized two days of live cocktail classes, bourbon brunch cooking classes, and exclusive distillery live video content you can’t view anywhere else! Due to the current climate of 2020, the festivities have been moved online.

“At a time when uncertainty is common we remain united, our spirits are shaken but not broken,” said Samantha Bradley, Director of Bardstown Tourism. “National Bourbon Day virtually is an example of just that. Each one of these distilleries have supported local organizations, projects and the economic growth in Bardstown, Kentucky for years.”
