In addition to the bourbon, one of the other elements that makes BABT one of the best conferences are the incredible excursions. All of your friends will be jealous as you show them photos and recount your adventures for years to come.
BABT 2020 is no exception. Below is a list of planned activities as well as a list of on-your-own, “choose your own adventure” outings for Saturday.

Rooted in 200 years of bourbon heritage, we create hand-finished spirits that aren’t afraid to improve on the classic tradition. Inspired by legendary Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s lifetime spent crafting fine spirits, ANGEL’S ENVY is our masterpiece.
As our number of whiskeys has multiplied, and to be able to summon one easily, we have given each expression a proper name. Rest assured that while these whiskeys have new monikers, they are the same distinct offerings you have sipped and savored. Each deliberately distilled from our proprietary cooking process and aged in hand‑selected barrels before being harvested in small batches to yield a flavor like no other.
The first Peerless whiskey went into barrels in 1889. We’ve revived the craft in our own state-of-the-art distillery, where we use the finest ingredients. We believe that patience builds character & fine bourbon can never be rushed. All under one roof, select Peerless grains are milled, cooked, fermented, double-distilled and barreled as Bourbon & Rye. Experience every aspect of crafting Kentucky straight Bourbon and Rye from grain to bottle in downtown Louisville.
We make definitive American brandy influenced by American whiskey and American music. We do not make derivative brandy styled upon a European sensibility. Our brandies are batch distilled exclusively in copper pot-stills, are non-chill filtered, with no added sugar, boisé (powdered oak, shavings or infusion) other flavors, synthetic chemicals or caramel colorants for an uncorrupted, authentic, natural flavor, nose and color. Our aged brandies exit the barrel full integrity intact.
