You might just be going down to Kentucky for the Bourbon trail, but there’s so much more that the area offers. There are some great bars, food and of course the horse tracks. No trip to Kentucky is complete without seeing at least one race and experiencing what Lexington and the surrounding area have to offer.
Kentucky is Bourbon country. There are a ton of bourbon distilleries in the area. So much, in fact, that there are more bourbon barrels than there are people in the state. Some of the biggest names come from here. Why? Well it’s all thanks to the limestone water, hot summers and cold winters. The conditions are perfect for the creation of some of the best bourbon in the world. The Bourbon Trail will bring you to 7 different distilleries in the area, but there are a lot more. We were able to hit 6 of the 7 in two days. We could’ve made the 7 but we had no idea a new distillery had been added to the trail, so we didn’t get to schedule it in. Maybe next year.
