Bourbon Barons: The Early Pioneers (Pioneers Days)
August 18 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm| $100
Join us as we go back to the late 1700s to join the early settlers of Kentucky that were traveling the Wilderness Trail with hopes in their heart and stills on their back. We will follow them on their journey into the untamed wilderness to stake their claim, grow their corn and introduce America to its Native spirit. We will concentrate on three of these brave men: Jacob Myers, Elijah Craig and Jacob Spears. You will hear their stories while also visiting three craft distilleries that are in close proximity to the original sites of these Early Pioneers: Wilderness Trail Distillery, Bourbon 30 and Hartfield & Co. We will finish in Harrodsburg at Olde Towne Distillery where we will receive a tour and tasting followed up by enjoying Harrodsburg’s own Pioneer Days Festival. So join us for a day of tales of the early pioneers and tastings of America’s Native Spirit, Bourbon.
Tour will be approximately 10 hrs long. Pickup and dropoff will be at the Lexington’s Visitor Center. Water and snacks will be provided.
Price $100 (Includes tours and tastings at all four locations and lunch).
