IT ALL STARTS HERE
Use our free souvenir passport to make your Kentucky Bourbon Trail® adventure one to remember! Collect stamps at every distillery on your journey to commemorate the Bourbon experience of a lifetime.
If a distillery is closed due to COVID during the time of your visit, the stamp will not be required in your passport for completion. Please make a note of it on that distillery page and your passport will still be honored.
Kentucky Bourbon Trail® adventurers who collect stamps from all distilleries will receive an Official Kentucky Bourbon Trail® Tasting Glass to commemorate the journey of a lifetime.
Still want a t-shirt? You can purchase a Kentucky Bourbon Trail® t-shirt at a discounted rate of $15.95 plus shipping upon completion. Sorry folks, this is only for those who have finished the tour.
Forget to grab a stamp at one of your stops? No problem—if you have photos or receipts from your visit, you’ll be good to go.
Once you’ve completed all stops on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®, simply swing by any of our Official Trailheads to turn in your passport and pick up your glass.

Yes, we require visitors to take a tour at each distillery to receive a stamp in their passport. It is at the discretion of each distillery to make an exception.
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour® has experienced some exciting changes! The passport is now a 60+ bound book featuring 19 distilleries and includes helpful contact info, photos, cocktail recipes and details about each distillery experience. Passports may be purchased for $3 at any KBTCT distillery, or in advance by clicking here (ordering online will include fees for tax and shipping).
We have broken down this experience into 4 bite-sized regions – Northern, Central, Western, and Bluegrass. Once you complete an entire region, you get a challenge coin. Once you have completed all 4 regions and have all your coins, you will receive a commemorative stave to house your coins and the official tasting glass of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour®!
