Beattyville Bourbon and Moonshine Festival
The largest export for Kentucky is Bourbon and the touring industries related to bourbon bring in visitors from all over the world. Moonshine also has a rich history in the hills of Appalachia and Beattyville, Kentucky is home to a few local moonshiners.
A festival like this that combines bourbon and moonshine is the first of its kind! The moonshiners of the Appalachian mountains are coming out of the hollers to share their stores because hey.. it’s legal now!
Distilleries from all over the state will be represented at our festival. The event will also include panel discussions with Moonshiners and Master Distiller who many of which appeared on the Discovery Channel. Enjoy live music, festival food and of course bourbon and moonshine tastings.
Hightlighs of this year’s festival will be Hank Williams IV performance on Friday night June 17th and the Hillbilly Bikefest event by Backroads of Appalachia on Saturday June 18th.
