You don’t have to travel far from home to have an adventure. If you are looking for a unique trip this summer, take a drive on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Follow this route and visit some of Kentucky’s most famous bourbon distilleries.
What Is The Kentucky Bourbon Trail
The trail has no official route so you can start and stop wherever you want. If you are starting in La Grange, we recommend heading west to Louisville first and visiting both Rabbit Hole and Bulleit. At the Rabbit Hole distillery, you need to make a reservation for the tour. You can even bring the kids along with free admission for kids under 10. Bulleit is open every day but Tuesday and anyone under 21 gets in for free.
How To Get There
After leaving Louisville, drive south to take a tour of the Jim Beam American Stillhouse. Book your tour reservation online to ensure you get a spot. They offer a variety of tour and program packages, including a more detailed Behind the Beam experience (only available for ages 21 and up).
Near Maker’s Mark Distillery
Next, head south to Bardstown and you can visit the Bardstown Bourbon Company, the Bourbon Heritage Center, and Lux Row. Not too far from here is the Maker’s Mark distillery. If you want to try even more, head east towards Lexington to visit Four Roses, Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve, and Town Branch.
Stop by Champion Chevy Buick GMC in La Grange, KY if you’re in need of a new vehicle to accompany you on your bourbon adventures.
