Mint Julep Experiences Awarded a “Hat Trick” of Recognition in the Past Month

Three Cheers for Mint Julep Experiences


For Immediate Release – November 2, 2021

LOUISVILLE, KY. (November, 2, 2021) – Mint Julep Experiences has been recognized with two local awards and one global award in the month of October. LUXlife Magazine named them the “Best Bourbon-Whiskey Tour-USA” in 2021. For the second year in a row, they were voted the “Best Tourists Tour” in the Nashville Scene and were voted the “Best Travel Agency” by the Louisville LEO. 


“There is nothing more gratifying than recognition from our peers, colleagues, and the local markets we serve for a job well done. We all strive for acceptance, and recognition is a reflection of belonging, a basic human need. 2021 has been a year when all we could do is focus on what really matters and what holds us all together, kindness. 


What we receive in return from daily reviews or emails from our guests is a testament to this simple approach. 


“My heart goes out to you who have made our travel experiences memorable and safe.”

“This was a day I hope to never forget.” 


This is an occasion of pride for all of us at Mint Julep Experiences as this recognition of our employee’s efforts is deserved and earned. So on behalf of the hard-working women and men who make Mint Julep Experiences who we are, we say “Thank You”. These awards and recognition would not be possible if not for our partners who have worked with us to create such memorable, safe, and enjoyable experiences — even at a time when resources were scarce for all of us.  To each and every one of them, we say Thank You!”
