The Kentucky Bourbon Festivalis celebrating the launch of online ticket sales with the release of its first handcrafted piece of commemorative merchandise – the 2019 Official Poster. Designed and produced by local Kentucky artists, only 120 premium numbered prints are being made available for purchase on the Festival website.

The poster was produced on vintage letterpress equipment using a hand-carved wood template and hand-mixed ink in the festival’s signature colors. The art includes miniature metaphors depicting bourbon culture. Vignettes include angel’s share, a whiskey thief and bourbon flight.

The price of a regular-edition print is $25, while a premium print sells for $50.

The festival is Sept. 18-22 in Bardstown.
