Welcome to the famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail! Here’s your passport to the world’s greatest Bourbon -– legendary distilleries just waiting to share their historic craft, timeless secrets and proud traditions of Kentucky’s signature spirit.

During your 8-hour Kentucky Bourbon Trail excursion you will enjoy a sampling of iconic distillery tours and tastings on what’s known as the “South Route” of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Your personal tour leader will share interesting history and knowledge as you sit back and enjoy the ride…soaking in the beautiful scenery along the way.

Your tour starts when your tour leader arrives at the hotel with a luxury SUV to take your party of two in style to your first stop, the historic Stitzel-Weller Exclusive Tour & Tasting. Move to a tour of Maker's Mark, exploring the distillery and warehouses and ends in a well-appointed tasting room. Each of you will receive a 375 ml bottle of Maker’s Mark to hand-dip in their iconic red wax. Enjoy lunch in historic Bardstown, listed as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America and known for its southern charm.

Enjoy a tour of the Jim Beam distillery, warehouse, bottling line, and a small museum of commemorative decanters. Enjoy your ride back to the hotel after a full day on The Bourbon Trail.
