Navigating the Kentucky Bourbon Trail is easy, and with a little planning, can be a fantastic getaway both for bourbon lovers and those who simply want to sight-see!
Fellow foodies, if you, like me, enjoy tours of vineyards, distilleries, and breweries– listen up! I’m sure you’ve heard of famous wine-tasting regions, such as California’s wine country, Italy’s Tuscan vineyards, and France’s Loire Valley. Those areas are special because, while there are other fantastic vineyards scattered across the world, these are in clusters, and make for spectacular vineyard-hopping getaways. You may or may not have realized, however, that several major bourbon distilleries in Kentucky are also clustered together, and make up the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Kentucky’s native limestone rock makes bourbon production easier, and 95% off all bourbon is made in Kentucky. The Bourbon Trail runs from Lexington to Louisville, and as of September 2016 has nine official stops.
