Don’t miss out on the tastiest meal of the year. Five delicious bacon-themed courses paired with five Sazerac-branded bourbons. Plus a Sazerac expert will be there to discuss the intricacies of each pour. If you like bourbon – or bacon – you’re not going to want to miss this!

Individual tickets are $125 and tables of 8 are $1,000. 

Bacon and Bourbon is a fundraiser for non-checkoff and non-political programs. We welcome the use of corporate credit cards to purchase tickets and/or tables for this event.
