Bourbon Tour

July 18, 2024

Details about this year’s Bourbon Tour are forthcoming but for now, take a peak at last year’s event to get a taste of what the Bourbon Tour has to offer.


Schedule of the Day:

11:00am -We will all meet at Mammy’s Kitchen and Bar for an early lunch.

  • 116 W. Stephen Foster Avenue, Bardstown, KY

1:00pm – 4:00pm – Private Barrel tasting at Heaven Hill Distillery

  • 1311 Gilkey Run Rd, Bardstown, KY 40004

After our lunch, we will be driving to Heaven Hill Distillery, there we will have the opportunity to select our own barrel.  This is a rare opportunity for our entire group.  We will be led to a private tasting room to choose among 3 hand-picked barrels.    Our guide will educate us about the mash bill, barrel char, aging and desirable characteristics of Elijah Craig. 

Barrels from 8 to 10 years old will be pulled from their barrel stocks for us to taste.  Following the tasting, we will agree upon 1 barrel after appropriate discussion and negotiation.

We will then customize a label that will be age stated and personalized with information specific to our selected barrel.   Then the entire barrel will be bottled and we will be able to purchase our own labeled bottles of bourbon from the barrel we have picked.  Very exclusive!  

Then we will have a VIP tour of a Heaven Hill warehouse.  Thereafter, we will experience a Whiskey Connoisseur tasting of allocated Heaven Hill products.  These are rare releases you read about! After a full expose of each product and tasting, each attendee can purchase one bottle among these bourbons.  Choose wisely!

We are so excited to share this top-of-the-line experience at Heaven Hill, so come ready to immerse yourself in bourbon!

Dinner at Limewater – 5:30pm

  • 900 Wilkinson Blvd, Frankfort, KY 40601

After dinner that will conclude our tour.  We hope you have enjoyed a wonderful “Bourbon” experience.
