RA Hot Spot Blog - Bourbon Trail-min

We are branching out and featuring the unique and exhilarating Kentucky Bourbon Trail as our Road Adventures Hot Spot this month. Located in Northern Kentucky, this iconic trail runs through Bardstown, Louisville, and several other Northern Kentucky cities that collectively house thirty-seven of the most iconic distilleries in the United States. Tour the distilleries, learn about the origins of bourbon, and enjoy the taste of quality bourbon along the route. 


Bardstown Bourbon Company

Located in the heart of Bourbon Country on 100 acres of active farmland, Bardstown Bourbon Company is one of the country’s most modern and technically advanced whiskey distilleries. Celebrating the art of making high-quality, authentic whiskey, the innovative distillery produces custom rye, whiskey and bourbon as well as offering production through their one-of-a-kind Collaborative Distilling Program.


Angel’s Envy Tour

While on the trail, stop at Angel’s Envy for a chance to see how bourbon is made and manufactured. As an extremely small batch company, every barrel of Angel’s bourbon is unique and every finished batch is complex and slightly different. During your one hour tour, you will get to enjoy a complimentary Angel’s Envy tasting to finish out the tour!

While on the trail, be sure to stop by Copper & Kings to enjoy a hands-on class. Allow Copper & Kings’ bartenders to teach you the history of the pre-Prohibition cocktail.
