Frequently Asked Questions

Can I drink in the vehicle? 2017-10-02T21:20:15+00:00

Absolutely! Feel free to bring along alcoholic beverages and snacks if you and your group chooses. We
thank you for being a responsible adult and choosing a safe chauffeured ride to get you and your
friends/loved ones in and between your destinations. With that we ask that you enjoy responsibly and in
moderation. We want you to remember your trip to Kentucky based on all the memories you make with
friends and family, not the hangover!

What should I wear? 2017-07-21T19:46:57+00:00

Much of your day will be in and out of various buildings so something comfortable. Many people choose
to wear country club or golf attire so that it is both comfortable and professional. Sunscreen or extra
layers (it’s HOT out there in the summer, and chilly in the winter).

What should I bring? 2017-07-21T19:48:59+00:00
  • A valid driver’s license or form of ID. Many of the Distilleries will not pass out tickets to people
    who do not have this item.
  • Closed-toed shoes (many stops do not allow for you to go on a tour if not).
  • Sunscreen or extra layers (it’s HOT out there in the summer, and chilly in the winter. Many
    stops will involve walking outdoors between buildings, so please prepare for the weather).
  • Cooler with snacks and/or alcohol if you so choose. (Airline carry on or smaller, unless
    otherwise approved.)
  • Money for lunch and gifts at the distilleries.
Can I do just tastings? 2017-07-21T19:36:03+00:00

Sort of, but not really. Bourbon is not regulated the same as wine which means the rules are stricter for
high proof spirits. These distilleries have some of the richest histories dating back to the beginning of
our country and sordid histories wrapped up in some of the oldest aged products in the world. The last
thing you would want to do would be to do a shot of 25 year old bourbon without knowing its story.
Every distillery requires some level of education or activity before doing a tasting. If you would like to do
just tastings we have a wonderful list of Louisville area bars here.

Will it be fun? 2017-07-21T19:42:13+00:00

Duh! How often do you get to hang out with your friends in chauffeured luxury? You will not only have
nothing to worry about with our help crafting your itinerary but through the services we provide we
allow you to focus on what’s important-the people you’re around. Our timeliness, level of hospitality,
and accommodations take away all the worry. You won’t have to wait in long lines, park far away at
distilleries or fight the pack for tickets – you’ll breeze in and out. Not only that, but bourbon is America’s
native spirit – you’re investing in knowledge very little know and hearing the stories of families that have
been around since the beginning of the country. With the rich products, luxurious accommodations,
ease of use, tour offers, and gorgeous rolling country side you would have a tough time not having the
time of your life, and in many cases for a similar price of what you’d spend on a night out.

Where should I stay? 2017-07-21T19:44:08+00:00

We are obviously partial to Louisville-we all live and work here. However we will pickup and drop off
anywhere with-in a 150 mile radius of Louisville for the same cost-if you have questions about this
please contact the office. We have plenty of representatives that can help walk you through the many
options and booking locations. Generally, though, Louisville is the most central to the region and has the
best night life and density of things to do. Bardstown is laid back and historic, Lexington is a bustling
wealthy college town with lots to offer but our favorite place to eat and sleep is by far Louisville and
ideally downtown (the center that you should look at as reference is the intersections of Main, Market,
and 4th street). We have a list of our favorites here:

What is Kentucky like? 2017-07-21T18:53:30+00:00

Kentucky is one of the most scenic, picturesque places on the planet. Louisville, at the north, is a bustling
metropolitan city with a thriving food industry and booming tourism industry. This city marks the
gateway to the state and the region. Just outside the city limits are rolling horse farms, dense forests
and quiet hollers. Cutting through the land you’ll find slow rivers and deep lakes-with some of the purest
water in the world making the region ideal for rich farming, raising livestock and above all producing
grain spirits. The people are a blend of traditional warm and friendly small town folk and fast paced city
dwellers with the constant exchange between these two extremes with the increase of tourism in the
past 10 years makes our state and cities all feel inviting, kind and mostly progressive. With all places that
have a lack of access and voice you will find the opposing views. The areas that you hear about on the
news and the ones that create the travel bans are the minority and outside of the tourist regions. We
are a state with a broad mix of people and overall progressive and open minded.

Can I do bourbon tours later in the day? 2017-07-21T17:55:57+00:00

Sort of. If you want to start later in the day your options are cut in half but it can be done. Many of the
distilleries operate tours within the hours of 9am-4pm, and many are an hour drive away. This means
you can easily fit 3 stops in within an 8 hour day and more will make for either a longer day or one with
a tight schedule. It is much easier to do evening distillery visits if you choose to tie in events but the cost
per person will go up generally speaking. Any of our coordinators would be happy to talk with you about
you and your groups’ specific needs.
