Stitzel-Weller Exclusive Tour & Tasting - Your tour starts when your tour leader arrives at the hotel with a luxury SUV to take your party of two in style to your first stop. Originally opened on Derby Day in 1935, Stitzel-Weller is home to Bulleit Bourbon, a Diageo brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that is characterized by its high rye content and aged for at least six years. This historic distiller sits just a few miles from Louisville's thriving downtown scene.
Maker's Mark Tour & Tasting - Maker's Mark is a beautiful distillery in Kentucky, nestled along Whisky Creek. The tour explores the distillery and warehouses and ends in a well-appointed tasting room. Each of you will receive a bottle of Maker's Mark to hand-dip in their iconic red wax. Maker's Mark has one of the most recognizable package designs in the liquor industry. If you place two bottles side by side, you will notice that the wax seal is never the same. That's because each bottle is hand dipped by distillery staff to create the trademark tendrils of wax that drip down the sides. Bring your bottle home to show your friends!
Lunch for 4 - Enjoy lunch in historic Bardstown, listed as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America and known for its southern charm.
Jim Beam Tour & Tasting - Jim Beam is one of the largest distilleries in the world and the #1 bourbon in the world. They claim if they stopped production today, they have enough bourbon aging in their warehouses to meet demand for the next twenty years. Brands include Jim Beam Straight Bourbon, Booker's, Baker's, Basil Hayden, Knob Creek, Devil's Cut, Old Tub, Red Stag, Jim Beam Honey and Knob Creek Smoked Maple. Enjoy a tour of the distillery, warehouse, bottling line, and a small museum of commemorative decanters.
