Kentucky Bourbon Distilleries & Attractions
The smell of the angel’s share. The sight of rickhouses stacked to the rafters with spirits. The taste of fresh-from-the-barrel bourbon. A visit to a Kentucky bourbon distillery will be imprinted on your senses forever.
Many of Kentucky’s nearly 70 distilleries offer tours and tastings, each one of them a unique experience. Take a Hard Hat Tour at Buffalo Trace to see everything from cooking to fermentation to distilling up close. Hand-dip your own bottle of Maker’s Mark in the distillery's famous red wax. Or take a curated cocktail class and taste bourbon straight from the barrel at Bardstown Bourbon Company, one of Kentucky’s newest and most technically advanced distilleries.
