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 Four Roses we will visit the Historic Buffalo Trace Distillery, the oldest continuous operating distillery in the United States. There we will have a tour of the beautiful grounds and distillery as well as a tasting of several of the renowned sprits such as Eagle Rare and Buffalo Trace.
Upon leaving Buffalo Trace, we will stop for lunch and shopping in Historic Midway or Lawrenceburg depending on our route of travel.
We could sub in Wild Turkey for either Four Roses or Buffalo Trace depending on time of year and distillery scheduling.
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.
