cowdery Posted August 19, 2010 Share Posted August 19, 2010 I'm starting my critique of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival a little early this year. I usually wait until it's over. (It's 9/14-19 in Bardstown, KY.) In a blog post here I made a few suggestions for improving the festival. One of them is: Think bigger. Find a role for the new craft distillers that are springing up all over the country and encourage all producers to feature all of their U.S.-made whiskey products, such as straight rye whiskey. There is a lot to be gained by being less literal and more inclusive. I also suggested that they invite Jack Daniel's and George Dickel. I also wrote, Yes, you can still call it the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. Absolutely. That's the brand. But when you say "Kentucky" think "center of but not sum of" the universe, and when you say "bourbon" think "American whiskey" in all its styles and forms. What do you guys think? Would you like to participate is a festival of American whiskey under the banner of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival? 2011 will be the festival's 20th year. What a perfect time to open the thing up.
