Kentucky Bourbon Trail

Published Mar 15, 2015
Updated Apr 9, 2018

In 1999, the Kentucky Distillers’ Association formed the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour to give visitors a firsthand look at the art and science of crafting Bourbon, and to educate them about the rich history and proud tradition of their signature spirit.

Visit 7 Local Distilleries

Each distillery offers a tour of their facilities and distilling operations. You’ll find these to be beautiful sprawling properties located literally along the back roads of Kentucky. While many visitors drive the trail, some choose to experience it by bicycle.

The tours are very educational and you’ll find it fascinating how each distillery has developed and perfected their own recipe and interpretation of the bourbon formula. Bourbon making is truly and craft handed down by generations and every small variation creates a new flavor.

Bourbon Trail Passport

The Kentucky Bourbon Trail also provides an official passport for visitors. This passport contains maps, listings and descriptions for each of the stops along the way and will assist you in navigating the trail.

Official Trail Heads for The Kentucky Bourbon Trail can be found in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, approximately 20 miles south of Louisville in Bullitt County, as well as Lebanon, Bardstown and Louisville.
