From fully customized outings to crafted public experiences, Mint Julep Experiences is Kentucky’s premier destination management company for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®, legendary horse farms, historic landmarks and the Commonwealth’s rich culinary scene. Our team also opened offices in Nashville, Tennessee for Tennessee Whiskey Trail tours in 2018.

As one of Condé Nast Traveler’s “Best Guided Drinking Tours in America,” our one-of-a-kind, family-owned tour company offers transportation and event planning services for hassle-free ventures for any size group including corporate outings and V.I.P. excursions. Based in Louisville, Mint Julep Tours’ team of bourbon experts, veteran tour guides and city concierges do it all to help you explore the living history of Kentucky in comfort and style.
