Kentucky Microbreweries & Craft Distilleries
Kentucky bourbon artisans are taking the beverage to another level with small-batch craft distilleries around throughout state. Distilling bourbon is a storied part of Kentucky’s history and heritage, and is one of the state’s largest industries. Now, smaller distillers are joining multi-million-dollar distillery giants such as Jim Beam, Wild Turkey and Maker’s Mark on the scene, crafting new and unique blended whiskey offerings. Search for Kentucky’s craft distilleries below and check out the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour to drink some unique and high-quality American spirits distilled right here in The Bluegrass State.
Kentucky is also seeing a rise in craft beer distilling. There are quite a few Kentucky microbreweries around the state, and more are popping up all the time, creating a new standard for what beer should be. These small artisan producers turn out specialty beers and experiment with new recipes and flavors. If you’re in the mood to try something new – like a beer flavored with unique local ingredients or a new take on moonshine – order a pint at one of the Kentucky microbreweries below and check out Kentucky’s craft beer trail. It’s a good idea to contact craft distilleries and breweries before visiting to ensure that they’re open when you plan to visit.
