The Spirit of Kentucky

In Kentucky, bourbon is much more than a drink. It’s a way of life. Whether you’re new to bourbon or an aficionado, whether you prefer your bourbon neat or on the rocks, whether you want to eat your way through Bourbon Country or bike along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®, there’s a bourbon experience for you in the Bluegrass State.


If you want to discover (and taste) the true spirit of Kentucky, you come to Bourbon Country. Take a distillery tour or learn about America's native spirit with a Bourbon 101 class. Experience restaurants creating a buzz with bourbon-infused dishes. Visit during National Bourbon Heritage Month (September) to take part in festivals, concerts and bourbon-soaked events. And if you're thirsty for outdoor adventure, too, you can even run the 200-mile Bourbon Chase relay race along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®.
