About Mint Julep
Let us introduce ourselves
Founded in 2008 by owners Sean and Lisa Higgins, our goal has always been to share our love for Louisville and Kentucky. 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. Our sister company Bourbon City Cruisers launched in 2019 with tuk tuk tours of downtown Louisville.
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.
Whether you’re traveling with us through Bourbon Country, historic Louisville, or visiting a horse farm, your tour will be inspired by our commitment to sharing Kentucky traditions. We have a love and passion for Kentucky that we are excited to share with you as our guest! Our team has proven that we continually exceed expectations by offering quality itineraries packed with interesting history, fun facts, and picturesque locations resulting in truly memorable experiences.
