Bourbon Tasting at Museum's Opening



Make plans now to attend the opening of the Museum’s 2005 exhibit The House of Bourbon: Bourbon County’s Saddlebred Kingdom. The opening will be held at the Museum on Friday February 18, 2005 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. in conjunction with the ASHA’s Annual Meeting.

The main event of the evening will be a bourbon tasting hosted by Blanton’s Age International. Winner of The International Wine and Spirit Competition’s Gold Award each year from 1999 through 2003, Blanton’s is widely considered to be one of the premier bourbons in the world. Guests will be treated to complimentary samples of Blanton’s.

Dinner is being hosted through the generosity of the following Bourbon County Farms: Escondida Farm, Hillcroft Farm, Leatherwood Stud, LLC and Winding Creek Farm. Enjoy an exquisite dine-around and sample the best of Kentucky’s bourbon while viewing the exhibit on the horses and horsemen that made the name Bourbon a part of Saddlebred heritage.

Tickets for the event are $35 each and may be purchased with ASHA convention registration or by calling the Museum. Transportation will be provided from the Embassy Suites Hotel. You are welcome to attend the opening even if you are not registered for the convention. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 859-259-2746 ext. 307.
