BOURBON DISTILLERIES

Border Line with Green Mint Leaves

Famous brands and craft makers of bourbon and whiskey call Kentucky home. Scattered across the state, bourbon distilleries old and new create some of the world’s favorite spirits. Most distilleries offer tours with tasting experiences. For that reason, ‘bourbonism’ and tourism to Kentucky to experience Bourbon Country is booming.

The Kentucky Bourbon Trail® consists of 10 member distilleries (Angel’s Envy, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience, Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, Four Roses, Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Center, Jim Beam American Stillhouse, Maker’s Mark, Town Branch, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve). Explorers who complete a passport collecting stamps at all ten get a t-shirt.

Other popular bourbon destinations include Buffalo Trace, Barton 1792, the 13 micro-distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® Craft Tour (like Willett, Limestone Branch, Barrel House, Peerless and Kentucky Artisan) and up-and-comers Three Boys Farm and Jeptha Creed.

Louisville is also the home to Copper & Kings, a brandy, gin and absinthe distiller. Other urban distillery experiences for Old Forester, Michter’s and Rabbit Hole plan to open soon.

To maximize your day, make Louisville your home-base, then choose near each other distilleries east or south of the city. Most guests can visit three or four bourbon distilleries per day. Keep in mind that most distillery tour times are from 9 and 10 a.m. to 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Admission price and availability varies.
