Fall in love with Bourbon this November! The Bourbon event of a lifetime is just a short road trip away in Louisville, Kentucky. Bringing together the best of the best in culinary, cocktails and Bourbon arts, Bourbon Classic takes place November 3 – 6, 2021. Make an autumn weekend getaway of it and enjoy Bourbon Classic’s signature events: the Cocktail & Culinary Challenge (November 5) and TASTE (November 6), both at Louisville Slugger Field. 

Arrive in Louisville on Friday, November 5, and get your weekend started with world-class Bourbon cocktails and small plates at the Cocktail & Culinary Challenge. Teams of master bartenders and acclaimed chefs will be matched with Bourbon Classic sponsor distilleries to compete in two rounds: Classic and Contemporary.
