Bourbonfest

It’s that time of year again! BOURBONFEST is HERE!
Just like most of 2020, Bourbonfest will look a little different this year.
To comply with event limitations due to COVID-19, Bourbonfest 2020 will be a ticketed event.

With your ticket price, you will receive:
– A Cap n’ Cork Wee Glencairn Tasting Glass
– A Numbered Wristband for Your Preassigned Two Bottle Right-to-Buy Allocations
– Entry into the Bourbonfest Tasting Tent

Yep! You read that correctly! We’re going to be pouring under the big top! Our Tasting Tent will be set up in the Covington Plaza parking lot (6410 W Jefferson Blvd), just a short walk across the parking lot from our retail location.

Please be aware of current state mandates when attending social gatherings.

Within the Bourbonfest Tasting Tent perimeter, there will be a food truck from Ziffles and a cash bar from Catablu. Please plan accordingly, if you wish to partake. We will also have water stations and hand sanitizer stations throughout the Bourbonfest Tasting Tent.

THE TASTING

All of the items that we will be tasting will be available for purchase inside our store, outside of the assigned allocations. We will provide a tasting menu that you can use as a shopping list to mark the items you enjoyed most. You are welcome to browse our retail space and purchase them along with your assigned allocation.

There will also be a limited number of items that we will be tasting from our allocation. We recognize that we don’t always have an opportunity or the means to purchase every bottle on the market, so we enjoy making some great bourbons available for you to taste and experience.

No re-entry after 7:00 PM.

NEW THIS YEAR

Outside of the apparent changes of physically separating the tasting event from the enclosed retail space, the allocation distribution will also see changes.

To be efficient with our time and limit handling of bottles, the limited allocation will be PREASSIGNED to corresponding wristband numbers.

Each numbered wristband will correlate to TWO bottles;
1) One Bottle will come from our Tier One list (Comprised of Items Rarely Found on the Shelf)

2) And One Bottle will come from our Tier Two list (Comprised of Items Sometimes, but Not Always Found on the Shelf)

Only one wristband per ticket per person. Tickets are non-transferable. Your ID and the name on your ticket must match.

The Allocation Assignments will be announced at 7:00 PM.

While the allocation and tasting price lists will be published in advance, the quantity and number of assignments of the allocated items will NOT be announced ahead of time.

You have the right to refuse your allocation, one or both bottles, but you cannot request a substitution.

Wristbands will be randomly selected upon entry. You must secure the band on your wrist in order to enter the tent and it must be on your wrist in order to receive your allocation.

Your Wristband Number will correspond to a preassigned allocation of two bottles. It is your right not to purchase your preassigned allocation.

Starting at 7:00 PM, The Allocation Assignment list will be handed out.

Please take your time and enjoy the tasting portion of the event.

Your preassigned allocation will be available to you in our retail store until 10:00 PM.

As you head across the parking lot our retail location to pick-up and purchase your allocation, any other items that were sampled, and enjoyed, and designated as available “On The Shelf” will be available for purchase as well.
