The Kentucky Bourbon Trail is a Great Fall Adventure

Come and visit the Kentucky bourbon trail this fall while you are staying at Willis Graves BnB. When the kids are back in school, and you have some time to get away there is nothing better than a relaxing day at one or more of the many Bourbon distilleries on the Kentucky bourbon trail. There are plenty of Kentucky bourbon trail tours to choose from or let us help you customize your own Kentucky bourbon trail tours. Remember there is no wrong way to experience the Kentucky bourbon trail, but here are a few tips to help.

We Can Plan Kentucky Bourbon Trail Tours

First, we can ask you a few questions when you book your reservation to determine how many and what type of Kentucky bourbon trail tours you think you are interested in. You might want to stay local in a Kentucky bourbon trail bed and breakfast. If so, Willis Graves BnB is lucky enough to be in the Northern part of where the Kentucky bourbon trail begins. Staying right on the trail and in a Kentucky bourbon trail bed and breakfast will allow you more time to enjoy your outing without a lot of travel. After a day of being out on the Kentucky bourbon trail coming back to a luxurious room at our conveniently located Kentucky bourbon trail bed and breakfast, you can unwind and soak in an air-jetted tub for two or grab dinner at one of the 3 restaurants in walking distance.

Most of the Kentucky bourbon trail tours will not only give you the history of their distillery but offer complimentary bourbon tastings. The bourbon tastings will give you insight into what type of bourbon you prefer. I found out that I prefer a mild more caramelly flavor bourbon at the bourbon tastings. I also learned what types of bourbon are better for cooking at a bourbon tasting. And my biggest surprise at a bourbon tasting was the most delicious of all, the “bourbon cream”. You see I’m not a real bourbon gal unless it is sweetened! But I was able to narrow down at one of the bourbon tastings which bourbon I wanted to use for cooking and our famous bourbon balls!

See, Smell, and Taste our Heritage with Kentucky Bourbon Trail Tours

Part of some of the Kentucky bourbon trail tours will include guided or self-guided tours of the grounds. Some of the distilleries are old and steeped in rich Kentucky history. Some are new ones and one of those is close to us and at the top of the Kentucky bourbon trail bed and breakfast is just 20 minutes away. We sometimes suggest going on a popular Kentucky bourbon trail tour, and then choose a small up-and-coming distillery. This provides you with a different insight into just the most popular bourbon tastings and can be surprisingly folk’s favorites.

Plan Your Stay with a Kentucky Bourbon Trail Bed and Breakfast

All in all, bourbon lovers, or those new to bourbon, folks seem to enjoy taking in a day to learn about something that started in Kentucky, and something that Kentuckians say can only be done right here in the state of Bluegrass Kentucky.
