Bourbon Festival


Bourbon Festival a Barrel of Fun

By Lisa Morefield, Staff Writer

Grove City Town Center, home of the acclaimed Wine and Arts Festival, is hosting another can’t-miss event on Saturday, August 11, 2018: the annual Bourbon Tasting. Bourbon tasting is experiencing increased interest. The Grove City Town Center venue is a great place to be a bourbon-tasting beginner, with eight samples for just 20 dollars. Attendees can learn what they like from several varieties before investing in an entire bottle.

Planning to come, but new to this? You might benefit from some bourbon basics. A whiskey is deemed to be worthy of the name “bourbon” when it is made from at least 51% corn, which provides sweetness. It also includes rye or barley grains. No other additions but water, used to achieve the appropriate alcohol proof, is permitted. Bourbon also achieves this high standard whiskey quality because it is aged in new, oak-charred barrels for at least two years, some only in Kentucky. This whiskey can be mixed with soft drinks, with other mixers as in the Mint Julep, or is smooth enough to slide down all alone! Bourbon is decidedly American, rich with our country’s history and craftsmanship.

Burning Leaf Cigars will be here to fulfill your desires for a great stogie!

Did you say FOOD? We will have multiple food vendors that will tantalize your taste buds along with the great eateries of the town center.

Save the date and become an official taster of this American tradition. See you on August 11, 2018, from 1 to 10 pm!

Enjoy the music of The Boondogglers from 7 to 9:30pm

We are working on the tasting list for this year!
