Getting to Kentucky

Out-of-state Bourbon explorers can arrive at any airport in Kentucky (or even Cincinnati, Ohio)—but we recommend touching down at Louisville International Airport, or Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport.

By landing in Louisville or Lexington, you’re one step closer to savoring the world’s most celebrated spirits on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®.

Self-Drive

While there are many guided transportation options available, many opt to self-drive the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® so they can enjoy it at their own pace, on their own time. Travel times between distilleries range from a few minutes to a few hours, offering stunning views of Thoroughbred farms and rolling hills along the way.

If you choose this option, be sure to plan ahead and understand how alcohol affects your BAC by utilizing the tools on our Responsibility page.

Catch the Bourbon Boat

On-Demand Rides

Nothing is more important than your safety while enjoying the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour. The transportation providers above are the best way to plan travel to and from distilleries; however, guests in need of on-demand rides can utilize Lyft or other ridesharing services, where available.

Lyft offers safe rides to patrons traveling in most Kentucky Bourbon Trail® communities. While drivers are abundant in Louisville and Lexington, wait times in rural areas can be long and unpredictable. Guests are encouraged to keep this in mind and use the app’s scheduling function to plan ahead.

LYFT PROMO CODE

If you’re new to Lyft, download the app and use promo code KYDISTILLERS for $5 off your first two safe rides between distilleries.
