As of today we are just over two months out from the 2012 Bourbon & Banter Pilgrimage to Bourbon Country. As I continue to finalize some additional details I can’t beging to tell you how excited I am about the tour we’ve got planned for everyone. Whether your a newbie to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail or an experience veteran there’s something for everyone.
I’d like to let everyone know that we recently made some changes to our tour schedule and the distilleries that we will be visiting. We’re super excited to announce a visit to Jim Beam’s new multi-million dollar visitor experience. It’s opening on October 3rd so our group will be among the first to experience a never before opportunity to see the heart of the Jim Beam distilling process. We’ve also added a stop at the recently restored Willett Distillery run by the Kentucky Bourbon Distillers. Definitely another “don’t miss” destination on our bourbon pilgrimage.
Unfortunately these additions mean that we had to remove Buffalo Trace and Old Barton from our schedule. I really hated making that decision but after meeting with Jimmy Russell a few weeks ago, and chatting with Jim Rutledge over at Four Roses it became clear that we needed to spend more time at their facilities on day one. It was a tough decision but one that I think will pay off in the end.
With such a great itinerary planned now is the time for you to book your spot on this truly unique trip to the heart of Bourbon Country. We’ve lowered the trip cost to $699 to make it even easier to join your fellow bourbon lovers. You can get full tour details here as well as book your reservation.
PS – For those who decide to arrive early on Thursday before the tour please note that a side-trip is being planned to visit Buffalo Trace. While not an official part of the tour price if we get enough people who are wanting to visit BT early we may be able to arrange for dedicated transportation.
