Bacon and Bourbon event offers tastings galore and more

Bourbon will be paired with bacon at the Bacon and Bourbon event.

Ever heard the line “everything’s better with bacon”? Well there’s an event that is aiming to bring together lovers of bacon with lovers of bourbon for a night to remember. Billed as “a night of brown water debauchery and cuisine,” Bacon and Bourbon boasts a line-up of 12 chefs and 25 distilleries, in addition to live music, bull riding, laser skeet shooting, cigars and more. Attendees of the all-inclusive event will enjoy unlimited samples of bacon dishes and bourbon tastings, with a rare bourbon bar serving up pours ranging from $10-$30 from the likes of Buffalo Trace Distillery, Parkers Heritage Collection, Old Rip VanWinkle, Jefferson’s, Orphan Barrel Projects, Willett, Wild Turkey and Woodford. The Junior League of Charleston is the official nonprofit partner for Bacon and Bourbon, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting their hunger and homelessness initiatives.
