After a good nights rest your bourbon journey begins. Take a trip to the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience at the Stitzel-Weller facility on the outskirts of Louisville. This new experience tells the story of Bulleit’s well-known brand on the hallowed grounds of this iconic site. Next, drive the five miles to Main Street and tour the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. This fantastic new immersive, artisan tour is right in the heart of downtown Louisville, on famed Whiskey Row. For your second full day, why not step into the Jim Beam American Stillhouse to enjoy their interactive, multi-sensory tour. For lunch you could enjoy freshly smoked BBQ and delicious sides at Fred’s Smokehouse, named after 7th generation Master Distiller Fred Noe. Finally, for your last few hours in Louisville why not finish with a Bourbon-themed dinner at Bourbons Bistro, Louisville’s foremost Bourbon bar, located in the historic Clifton district.

Lexington

64mi / 103km

Today you will make the stunning drive through the emerald hills of Horse Country to Lexington. Located in the heart of the Bluegrass Region, Lexington is a true Thoroughbred town, where future Derby winners are trained and retired champions now reside. Among the farms that allow tours are Coolmore’s Ashford Stud, Darley at Jonabell and Darby Dan, whose proud history has included four Kentucky Derby winners. If the Bluegrass Region can claim a title other than that of “Horse Capital of the World,” it would be as centre of Bourbon Country, an area which produces 95 percent of the world’s bourbon. With the opening of Alltech’s Town Branch Distillery and two new craft distilleries—Wilderness Trace Distillery and Barrel House Distillery, there is a plethora of tours to choose from while in Lexington.
