Legends Series celebrates 10 years of Master Bourbon Tastings!

This is not your typical bourbon tasting. The Legends Series gives you a taste of fine bourbon, along with a chance to chill with the Legends themselves.

The Legends Series offers three nights of casual, in-depth conversation with pioneers and titans of the bourbon industry. Each evening features a different Bourbon Master who hand-picks a selection of bourbon tastings. Each legend shares his or her expertise and engages guests through their senses as they taste fine bourbons and enjoy hors d'oeuvres.

Tickets: $75 per person, per event
At the Kentucky Derby Museum | 5:30-7:30 p.m. | Hors d’oeuvres included

Fred Minnick

The Kentucky Derby Museum’s own Bourbon Authority, Fred Minnick, curated a very special lineup of three Master Bourbon Tastings to celebrate the Legends Series’ 10th year! As a Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Author, Bourbon Curator, and Tasting Expert, Minnick will host the Series and bring his own flavor to each event.

The Legends Series is designed to be a masterful and approachable experience for Bourbon lovers of all levels, and this has earned it a place on the coveted “Bourbon Bucket List” by the online publication The Alcohol Professor.
