Bourbon Country

Take a trip through Kentucky's Bourbon Country!

This segment features Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail, which includes establishments that range from historic hotel lounges, like the Old Seelbach Bar, to trendy cosmopolitan bars, like Proof on Main. Also highlighted is a visit to the Bourbon Heritage Center at the Heaven Hill Distilleries in Bardstown, Kentucky.

In addition, viewers meet Stacey Yates of the Greater Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau and Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris.

Bourbon Country packages are a boost for local tourism. Another bump is provided by the annual Hometown Tourism Celebration, which offers deep discounts at a number of local attractions for Kentucky and Indiana residents.
