The region’s best bartenders will compete to create memorable morning cocktails in the BW Bourbon Bloody Mary contest.  The winning cocktail mixologists will receive the coveted BW Mixologist Award, selected by a “People’s Choice” vote from each attendee and presented by the KDA and Bourbon Women Association.

The Bourbon Brunch is sponsored by the Bourbon Women Association, the nation’s premier organization for women who are passionate about exploring Bourbon and the culture that surrounds it.

The Bourbon Brunch will be held at Locust Grove, a National Historic Landmark, which celebrates the birth of what would become Kentucky’s legendary Bourbon whiskey industry.  The beautiful 55-acre estate also includes a circa 1792 house, outbuildings and grounds.  Locust Grove also includes a fully functional, full scale replica of a small farm distillery from early 19th Century Kentucky. The immersive, living historical action will take place under the covered porch area where the still and boiling tub have been installed. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes!
