Do something totally unique
Mint Julep Experiences partners with Kentucky’s best bourbon distilleries, restaurants and destinations for special events throughout the year. Each of our elevated experiences takes you on a one-of-a-kind adventure.
Whether it’s a private distillery tour after hours, rare bourbon tasting with a master distiller or an upscale food tour, we specialize in truly exceptional experiences. Please note departure location for each tour before booking.
Our most popular elevated experiences include “Secrets of Bluegrass Chefs” TV tapings and our ultimate bourbon experience Heaven & Evan to Heaven Hill and Evan Williams distilleries. Each premium offering is only offered a few times a year and gives you access to place never available to other tour companies.
Some elevated experiences can be incorporated into customized tours. Ask your experience coordinator about options.
