|About these ratings|
As synonymous with Louisville as Derby day, bourbon is the drink of choice. And if you want to taste the best of Bourbon County (or Kentucky's northeastern region from which the whiskey gets its name), previous visitors suggest you participate in a Bourbon Trail tour.
There are several companies that swing past Kentucky distilleries, but Mint Julep Tours might be the most prominent. According to a TripAdvisor traveler: "This was seriously SO MUCH FUN! On our Bourbon Tour we went to Four Roses and Wild Turkey and stopped off at a great local bar for lunch in between the two."
Mint Julep offers a traditional bourbon tour (which will take you to distilleries like Maker's Mark and Jim Beam), but this company also sponsors trips to Old Louisville and horse country. Prices vary as do tour times (most start around 8:30 a.m.), so check the official website for further details.
