Bourbon Country

For connoisseurs of great food, great whiskey and great times, one place offers a sensual and sensory experience uniquely American: Kentucky Bourbon Country.

Louisville is the gateway for Bourbon Country and the start of the famed Bourbon Trail-a distinctly Kentucky experience that draws a half-million visitors a year. Seven distilleries are along the trail, all within easy driving distance of the city. The distilleries offer tastings and tours of their facilities, so visitors can see up close master distillers at work.

A new Visitor Information Center in downtown Louisville has extensive information available on the Bourbon Trail and the packages available to those who want to travel it. The city is also home to Churchill Downs, where the Kentucky Derby, one of the most prestigious thoroughbred horse races in the world is held-and home of the world's most noted bourbon drink-the Mint Julep.
