Public Bourbon Tours

Your all-inclusive ticket to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®

We plan your day on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® from start to finish – transporting you to three different Kentucky distilleries and grabbing lunch at a local restaurant.

Your Mint Julep guide will lead the way sharing tons of bourbon knowledge not covered on distillery tours and filling in the blanks between each stop. He or she will take care of all the details – from timing to admissions and more. You just sit back and enjoy your fully-guided day exploring Kentucky!

All public bourbon tours depart from the Mint Julep Experiences Hub inside Falls City Market in the Omni Louisville Hotel. Departure times and destinations vary. Itineraries below are for 2019 tours. Please double check your confirmation sheet for exact timing. In most cases, booking opens 180 days in advance of tour departure date. For help with your booking, call 502-583-1433.

Most public bourbon tours include transportation with an expert guide, trips to two distilleries for a tour and tasting and an additional tasting-only bonus stop at a third distillery, lunch at a local restaurant, and bottled water, unless otherwise noted.

Be sure to stamp your Kentucky Bourbon Trail® passport along the way at participating distilleries. Two-day and three-day public bourbon tour packages are available. Pick your favorite distilleries to make your own bundle. Or see how a bourbon barrel is made at Brown-Forman Cooperage on a half-day cooperage tour.
