We maximize your time. Time is money! We save you time planning and act as your personal city concierge. Mint Julep also takes care of every detail of your day to make sure its jam-packed. Don’t spend hours on Google trying to figure out how long it takes to get from Maker’s Mark to Jim Beam or wondering where to get lunch along the way. We make your trip hassle-free with guaranteed reservations, impeccable timing and full-service trip planning. Our experience coordinators optimize your schedule so that you can see and do more.
We know Kentucky. Our drivers and tour leaders make your day fun and educational. We’re not just a chauffeur from one place to another. Mint Julep is all about the full experience. Whether its filling in the blanks between horse farm tours, knowing where to take a detour to see a horse farm or abandoned distillery if we have an extra few minutes, or giving the inside scoop on where to find the rare bourbon at distilleries, we’re out in the field 7 days a week, 365 days a year taking in everything Kentucky to share with you.
We’ve got connections. Mint Julep has partnerships with distilleries, horse farms and Kentucky attractions to get you behind the scenes for unmatched access. We have exclusive offerings that you just can’t get anywhere else. From special tastings to hard hat tours and master distiller meet-and-greets, we take you where no one else can.
We have options. Sometimes you want to just click BOOK NOW and have us take care of the whole day – and we can do that. Our public bourbon tours hit distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each is a one-day adventure to three different Kentucky distilleries. It includes comfortable transportation, an awesome tour guide to lead your way, lunch at a locally-owned Kentucky restaurant, two distillery tours with tastings, and one additional distillery tasting.
Sometimes you want to go your own way – and that’s our specialty. You tell us the size of your group and a few ‘bucket list’ places you want to go and we customize your entire trip. You’ll have private transportation from our fleet of luxury vehicles, an optimized itinerary hand-tailored by our experience coordinators, and a trained driver/guide to lead your way. Want to add in a special dinner? Hands-on cocktail class? Guided bourbon tasting?
We do it all, y’all.
