KBT Distillery Reopening Information



The KDA has submitted its Kentucky Bourbon Trail® Plan to Reopen to the Governor’s Office for review and guidance. KBT Visitor Center retail-only operations (no onsite consumption) are eligible to open May 20. However, with the requirements and restrictions issued by the Governor’s Office, several distilleries are waiting until later to welcome guests and/or reopening retail operations gradually.

We expect limited tastings to open shortly thereafter. We expect limited tours to resume later this summer.

We strongly recommend you contact individual distilleries for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding hours, policies, and experiences. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail® will continue to update the website – www.kybourbontrail.com – and social media with general information regarding distillery tourism operations and policies as the information becomes available.
