Event description

Description

You probably know that bourbon has a long history...but did you know that traces of the bourbon industry's earliest origins still survive, buried deep in Kentucky's woods and hollers? Join us as Bourbon Archaeologist Nick Laracuente talks about his work excavating the remains of some of the oldest bourbon distilleries in the region. Then, tour Locust Grove's new Farm Distillery Project, watch a demonstration of early nineteenth-century whiskey production, and enjoy a bourbon tasting led by Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Famer Michael Veach.

All proceeds go to support the mission of the Kentucky Society of the Archaeological Institute of America, which has been bringing archaeology to life for audiences across the Commonwealth since 1953. Many thanks to our sponsors for this event: Locust Grove, Bourbon Veach LLC, and the University of Louisville Liberal Studies Project.
