Bourbon In The Bluegrass

We start our "Bourbon in the Bluegrass" tour at 8:30 a.m. (please arrive 15 minutes early) and will have a short scenic drive through Mercer County into Lawrenceburg Kentucky. Our first stop will be Kentucky Bourbon Trail® member Four Roses Distillery, recently selected "Distillery of the Year –America for 2015" by Whiskey Magazine and winner of this award four out of the past five years. The distillery was built in 1910 and is on the National Register of Historic Places and has a newly remodeled 5000 square foot visitor center and gift shop. You will be touring the distillery and tasting samples of their seven labels in your complimentary souvenir glass.

After a short drive across Lawrenceburg, we will be heading toward the Kentucky River and our next stop, Wild Turkey Distillery on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®. This distillery was originally started in 1896 and took on the name "Wild Turkey" in 1940. The Master Distiller here is Jimmie Russell, who just recently celebrated his 60th year at the distillery. He and son Eddie, the Associate Master Distiller, are responsible for the 18 different labels of bourbon, whiskey and blends produced at this distillery. We will tour the distillery, tour warehouses and then have a tasting in their new visitor center overlooking the river and Tyrone Bridge, one of a very few "S" shaped bridges in the country.

Upon leaving Wild Turkey, we will stop for lunch and shopping in Historic Midway or Lawrenceburg.

After lunch, we will make our way to Kentucky Bourbon Trail® member Woodford Reserve Distillery. Distilling began on this site in 1780 and the current distillery building was built in 1838, making this the oldest active distillery today. The visitor’s center was just remodeled in 2014 so you will have both history and modern comforts on this tour. Following your tour, you will be able to sample some of their gold medal winning bourbons and visit their gift shop as well. After leaving Woodford Reserve, we will make our way back to Harrodsburg and should arrive back around 5:15 p.m.
