Kentucky Bourbon fans from around the world got a taste of the stateâs top agricultural offerings from local chefs at last weekâs Kentucky Bourbon Affair, thanks to a partnership with Kentucky Proud, which markets farm-fresh fare and ingredients from across the Bluegrass.
âKentuckyâs signature Bourbon industry relies heavily on Kentucky farm ingredients for our products and events during this magical week full of out-of-state guests,â said Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillersâ Association that operates the elite event. âWeâre honored to feature Kentucky Proud products again this year and showcase our farm families.â
