Our Story – Who We Are
In 2008, Sean and Lisa Higgins decided to create a business that would share their love for their hometown and home state. Their goal was a business that would expose the community and visitors to the beauty of the Bluegrass State. Over the past 9 years, they have grown from a single bourbon bus and a few employees to a full service destination management company. With 11 full time employees and over 25 knowledgeable and experienced drivers and guides, Mint Julep Tours has continued to be the recognized leader for Bourbon Country Adventures in Kentucky.
Mint Julep Tours is the only dedicated tour company focused on The Kentucky Bourbon Trail®. Based in Louisville, Kentucky they offer Custom and Public Bourbon Distillery Tours as well as unique Exclusive Experiences, Horse Farm Tours, Culinary Tours, and Louisville City Tours. As a truly one-of-a-kind tour company, Mint Julep Tours also offers transportation and event planning services with a focus on Special Events, Corporate Outings and Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties.
