Here’s another exclusive for VIPs: All VIPs are entered to win one of 14 bottles of bourbon signed by distillery pros and featured in our recorded segments! **


One lucky VIP will win the chance to join our 30th Anniversary KBF | Maker’s Mark Private Selection barrel pick at the distillery and enjoy lunch prepared by Maker’s Mark executive chef Newman Miller at the distillery’s Star Hill Provisions Restaurant! The drawing for these prizes will be held on Sunday, October 18 to conclude the weekend of virtual fun!


One special VIP will win a two-night stay in Bardstown, Ky., for the 2021 festival at The Fairfield Inn & Suites, the Official Hotelier of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. We will announce the names of prize winners on our Facebook Live channel on October 18!
