ABOUT BARDSTOWN

Bardstown is the bourbon capital of the world.

In fact, it's been considered the birthplace of "America's Native Spirit" since 1776, the very year America achieved independence.


THE BOURBON TRAIL

Leave your trekking poles at home.

The Kentucky Bourbon Trail isn't actually a trail - it's a region stretching from Louisville to Lexington that's home to some of the finest distilleries in America.
