Bourbon University

Kentucky Bourbon School

So you enjoy a glass of Bourbon here and there … and you know that it’s important to Kentucky’s history and economy, but there’s so much more to learn about Bourbon! In 2021, The Kentucky Castle is in its fourth year of Kentucky Bourbon School. Come join us each month for a new bourbon theme. No need to attend them all - mix and match as you like!

Bourbon University is part of the extensive bourbon program at the Kentucky Castle in picturesque Versailles, KY just down the lane from the historic Keeneland Racecourse in the midst of both Bourbon and Horse Country.  

Bourbon enthusiasts can purchase monthly tickets or a 12-month package for a special price.   Learn the basics, the history, as well as what makes each brand special throughout this year long experience from Tim Knittel, the luxury boutique hotel’s Bourbon Steward-in-Residence.
