The Scenic Bourbon Country Route That Leads To 5 Old-Fashioned Distilleries
Kentucky is Bourbon Country, producing some 95% of the world’s supply of this spicy, sultry spirit. There are nearly 100 distilleries in the Bluegrass, in fact, each bringing something unique to the table (or bar, if you will). Central Kentucky is the heart of Bourbon Country, and this also happens to be one of the most beautiful regions of the state, too. We put together a scenic route that leads to five old-fashioned distilleries, and we hope you enjoy this road trip in Kentucky Bourbon Country!
Bourbon is life here in the Bluegrass State, and we hope you enjoyed this scenic route through the heart of Kentucky Bourbon Country.
