We’ve been making travel dreams a reality for more than 13 years. Our top-priority is to show our guests southern hospitality with a twist of mint — unique experiences, excellent service, and a lifetime of memories. Below are authentic reviews from travelers just like you. We appreciate every one of them.
This was the absolute best experience! We had a party of 8 for a bachelorette in Nashville and the tour guide Jonathan. This was the absolute best experience. We had fantastic pictures, great company, and the best time at the donut distillery. Thank you for an amazing time!!
They have the best tours to Jack Daniels and George Dickel distilleries. Travel in beautiful, new black buses with high back leather seats with an expert whiskey expert tour guide on board for the entire trip. You will learn all kinds of interesting facts about whiskey in the 90 minute ride to the distilleries, such as "why all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon", and where the terms "proof" and "shot glass" originated, and why most of the distilleries are in TN and KY and lots more fun facts.
The tour of both distilleries, called "Legends" includes a wonderful lunch stop ( meal and admissions included in your ticket price) where you can choose "rattlesnake pasta", whiskey burger (with a sauce made from both Jack & George whiskies), chicken, BLT, BBQ or salad bar.
At the end of the day, you have a little time to enjoy the quaint shops on the town square in Lynchburg, and there is a "special surprise" stop at the end of the day. Worth every penny of the ticket price and more - leave the driving to Mint Julep, learn all about whiskey and enjoy the guided tours at the 2 oldest distilleries in TN! (Find out what is the difference in KY bourbon and TN whiskey from your Mint Julep tour guide!)
You can even bring your own alcohol/drinks for the ride down and back - they supply ice, coolers, drink cups and bottled water to go with it!
A+ Service with a Smile! I took the Mint Julep Experiences to get to the Jack Daniels Distillery for a tour, My driver Bob, was fantastic! He was very informational on the things around Nashville, Lynchburg, and all the small towns in between. He is a wonderful driver. Also can carry good conversation. He went above and beyond to make sure the trip was as good as it could have been. 10/10 would defiantly recommend!

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?
