Bourbon Heritage Month

Celebrate America's Native Spirit Every September

We celebrate America's Native Spirit every September. In 2007 the U.S. Senate declared the first National Bourbon Heritage Month.

Here in Bourbon City, we like to celebrate with the Old Fashioned, our city's official cocktail, at one of the stops along the Urban Bourbon Trail, visit one of our ten local distilleries for a tour and tasting, or attend the Bourbon & Beyond Festival. There are so many more options to choose from, too!

See below for a list of upcoming Bourbon events to participate in this Bourbon Heritage Month.
