In Kentucky, bourbon is much more than a drink - it’s a way of life. According to the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, the Bluegrass State produces and ages approximately 95 percent of the world’s bourbon whiskey. By the 1780s a distinctive style of corn-based whiskey was being distilled in Kentucky. Whether you’re new to bourbon or an aficionado, whether you prefer your bourbon neat or on the rocks, this trip explores all that bourbon has to offer. You’ll discover (and taste) the true spirit of Kentucky, by touring historic Bourbon Country. During this trip you’ll tour distilleries in the beautiful Kentucky countryside, learn about bourbon pairing during a Bourbon 101 event, and create cocktails in a mixology course. Join us to taste a part of bourbon history. Accommodations are at the centrally located Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville overlooking the Ohio River.
