Welcome to the Bourbon capital of the world.
With the many wonderful bourbon distilleries throughout Kentucky, Visitours couldn’t have only one trail. Whether you want to tour several different distilleries, take part in a bourbon tasting, learn more about the history of bourbon, or get a closer look at how the best bourbon is made, we can design a trail to match your priorities. If you have just a few hours or a full day, Visitours has a variety of options for your group to explore the birthplace of bourbon.
Distilleries on the Trail
1792 Ridgemont Reserve
Here is one example of the Bourbon Trails we can customize for you:
As you enter the grounds of STAR HILL FARMS, home of MAKER’S MARK BOURBON, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. The Samuels family has been making whiskey since 1840, and they consider what they do an art, not just a business. Every guest that visits MAKER’S MARK experiences an up-close-and-personal look at the process of creating excellent bourbon.
Lunch today will be at the Historical OlD Talbott Tavern that is said to be the oldest western stagecoach stop in America as the westward expansion brought explorers from the east into Kentucky. Since the late 1700s, the Old Talbott Tavern on Court Square has provided shelter, food and drink to Kentucky travelers.
HEAVEN HILL DISTILLERY BOURBON HERITAGE CENTER is surely one of Kentucky’s premier attractions. The Center, made out of the same materials used in bourbon making, and spanning 9,678 square feet near the distillery, is every bourbon lover’s paradise. Heaven Hill offers visitors interactive exhibits on the birth of bourbon, the role of whiskey throughout history and the process by which many of the distillery’s well-known brands are prepared.
