Bourbon & Beyond Experiences

Mint Julep offered specialty Kentucky bourbon tours Friday, Sept. 21 for festival-goers. VIP tour packages are also available. Maximize your weekend and add on a tour today!

Urban bourbon adventures departed from the Omni Hotel in downtown Louisville Sept. 21. With a morning and an afternoon tour option, you could make a full day of bourbon fun.
