Mint Julep Experiences has expanded to serve the growing Nashville, Tenn. tourism industry. Owners Sean and Lisa Higgins utilized their 10 years of experiential tourism expertise to create memorable experiences on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail® and beyond. Two distinct day-long whiskey tours will start this April departing from downtown Nashville five days a week.
About Mint Julep Experiences – Nashville
Founded in 2008, Mint Julep continues to add new tour experiences, grow its fleet of luxury vehicles, and expand its highly skilled staff in Louisville and now Nashville. With nearly 50 employees and 20 vehicles serving more than 30,000 guests per year in Kentucky, the veteran business looks to replicate its success in Nashville.
Native Nashvillian Adam Smith has joined the team as Director of Operations for the Nashville office. He brings more than 16 years of hospitality sales and operations experience in Nashville’s tourism industry, including working as part of the opening teams for the Music City Center in 2013 and Westin Hotel in 2016.
“Tennessee’s rich history of hospitality and craftsmanship remind us so much of what we love about our Kentucky home,” said Sean Higgins. “Our passion for tourism is contagious. We can’t wait to unveil our immersive outings exploring the heart and soul of Nashville. Our curated experiences allow for our guests to relax and leave all the planning, transportation and reservations to us. They just need to sit back, relax and enjoy the culture of Tennessee with their friends.”

Booking is now live for Tennessee whiskey adventures every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting April 11. For tour itineraries and ticketing, visit mintjuleptours.com/nashville.
