Went to Kentucky and among other things, we toured 10 of the Bourbon breweries. Each one was a little different and we learned a great deal about the process needed to make a prime bourbon. Won't give it away, you must enjoy it yourself. They...More

My wife visited the Trail in the month of May. The temps were good, the people friendly, and the bourbon awesome. I recommend doing your homework on what each distillery offers and plan carefully to avoid waiting long times or being shut out completely. The...More

First, you can not see all of the distilleries in one day. Two days minimum would let you see a majority. Spend some time in Bardstown, the home of bourbon! There are now 3 different bourbon trails, from the traditional to the modern distillation.

I have never been to KY in the summer, but I have read that some distilleries have reduced hours/tours.
Ladies, What do I wear? Thanks!

Definitely casual. Jeans, clam diggers(?). You go into the production, warehouses, and bottling areas and also go up some short stairways. (Wild Turkey had about 25 steps as you start the guided tour.).

Hey there! I am doing all the research that I can and my husband and I would love to be stationed right in the middle of all of the distilleries. Thinking of staying at a B&B or an Inn that has a lot of character and history! Any specific recommendations on any particular Inn and location? Will be there second week of June!
