Kentucky Bourbon Distilleries Tour from Louisville
US$157.94
Overview
Sample the best of authentic Kentucky bourbon from big-league bourbon distilleries on this guided tour from Louisville. Head to Heaven Hill, Maker’s Mark, and Jim Beam American Stillhouse for tastings and a behind-the-scenes look at the distilling process of brand-name Kentucky bourbons. Tour includes all tastings, transportation with narrated commentary, and lunch.
What to Expect
