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 visit or drive to 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.Galt House Hotel, Louisville
Today you will make the short drive to Bardstown, the Bourbon Capital of the World®. On the outskirts, you may find the Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Centre enjoyable. Once in Bardstown, for unique Bourbon artifacts, peruse the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History. Also make sure to stop by the Kentucky Bourbon Marketplace – your one stop shop for one-of-a-kind Bourbon souvenirs, gifts, bottles and even a Bourbon cocktail at their barrel stave bar. Be sure to dine on classic Kentucky fare in the Old Talbott Tavern and have a nightcap in the “world’s oldest bourbon bar”.Bourbon Manor Bed & Breakfast Inn, Bardstown (First Class Only)
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.Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa, Lexington
