EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

The largest city in Kentucky, and the state’s cultural epicenter, Louisville is a place where old meets new. It’s a city of Victorian homes, modern skyscrapers, and historic landmarks from its early days as a major shipping port and Union stronghold during the Civil War. Today it’s arguably best known for three things—baseball bats, horse racing, and Kentucky bourbon.

Made in just one place in the world, Kentucky bourbon is synonymous with the state. In fact, 95% of all the world’s bourbon is produced here. Distilled through the centuries with dedication, care, and craftsmanship, nothing brings to mind old-world southern gentility like a glass served neat in your hand.

During this weekend getaway, you’ll immerse yourself in the culture and heritage of this spirit as you tour local distilleries, explore the city, and learn more about this history of Kentucky bourbon.

Your home base for the trip is downtown Louisville’s iconic The Brown Hotel, conveniently located near some of the city’s best restaurants and attractions. The rooms here feel like home, with soft, rich fabrics, large Mahogany beds, and spacious bathrooms featuring luxury bath amenities and plush robes. It’s a wonderful place to come back to at the end of the day.

To kick off your trip, you’ll enjoy a themed Progressive Dinner complete with cocktails and transportation. The dinner tour starts around 5:30pm with appetizers and a bourbon or cocktail pairing at one restaurant, then progresses to the next stop for the entrée and cocktail pairing, and then onto restaurant number three for dessert, before heading back to the hotel at 9:30pm. It’s a unique way to get a look at the city, explore the flavors of Louisville, and taste some of the amazing bourbons here.

The next day you’ll be picked up for a full-day bourbon distillery tour that includes world-renowned names as well as lesser-known gems. Your local expert guide will transport you to each distillery where you will explore every step of the process—learning how bourbon barrels are produced, mingling with distillery owners, and maybe even mixing up the perfect Mint Julep. Along the way, you’ll experience Kentucky’s world-famous horse country and see where top thoroughbreds are bred and trained for the world’s biggest horse races. A local lunch or brunch and bottled water are included in this day-long excursion.

After the tour, head back to your hotel where you can order room service or enjoy dinner and drinks in one of The Brown Hotel’s excellent restaurants—the casual J. Graham’s Café or the upscale Lobby Bar. And if there’s time the next day before you leave for home, consider checking out historic Churchill Downs, the Louisville Slugger factory, or the Frazier Kentucky History Museum.

With a weekend designed to be an experience you’ll never forget, you’ll return home armed with the knowledge of the timeless tradition of Kentucky’s finest.
