Louisville distillery joins Kentucky Bourbon Trail
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Bourbon Trail is expanding to include a small distillery that’s tucked in the shadows of skyscrapers in downtown Louisville.
Heaven Hill Distilleries’ new distillery will become the eighth stop on the popular tourist attraction that has drawn more than 2.5 million visitors in the past five years.
Mayor Greg Fischer said Thursday that bringing the Bourbon Trail to Louisville will enhance the city’s bourbon tourism efforts.
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail takes visitors to several rural and rustic settings to visit the places where iconic bourbons such as Wild Turkey, Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark are crafted.
The trail meandered into the big city starting last year when the Lexington distillery that makes Town Branch bourbon was added.
Kentucky is home to 95 percent of the world’s bourbon production.
