BourbonBlog.com interviews Kentucky Distillers’ Association (K.D.A) President Eric Gregory live from Frankfort, Kentucky during as he learns that the Kentucky House of Representatives kills The Tasting Bill. The Kentucky Senate passed its own version of the Tasting Bill today. Gregory says that the K.D.A. and Bourbon industry will continue to work toward a solution this week during the special session.
State law and state regulations currently differ with regard to special licenses required to conduct samplings. Distillers themselves are not actually permitted to offer samples beyond their premises. Gregory tells us in this podcast interview that the issue has become more important than ever to The Kentucky Bourbon Trail as the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games and other high profile events will be in Kentucky during the next 12 months.
