Join us for a truly exclusive, immersive, and modern Bourbon experience. Located on 100 acres of active farmland inside one of the world’s most technically advanced whiskey distilleries, The Bardstown Bourbon Company is a celebration of the art of making whiskey. No secrets, mythical stories, or fabricated legends, Bardstown Bourbon celebrates the craft of making great whiskey and the Bardstown community that brings Bourbon to the world.
This state-of the art distillery not only produces completely custom whiskey for more than 22 different world-class brands, but it’s also home of Bottle & Bond Kitchen and Bar, the first full-service Kentucky Bourbon Trail restaurant and bar in a distillery.
