The Oldest Bourbon Bar In America Is Right Here In Kentucky And It’s Amazing
Actually, it’s the oldest bourbon bar in the world. It seems like bourbon bars have popped up all over the place, but the Old Talbott Tavern in Bardstown has been serving America’s native spirit since 1779. Along with serving Southern food classics, the Old Talbott Tavern is also a bed and breakfast, so it’s a great option of a place to stay if you’re visiting Bardstown.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
