If you’re looking for the best Bourbon than look no further than Kentucky. But what about when you get there?
We’ve brought together a list of some of the best places to go if you’re looking for some amazing Bourbon.
Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar
Founded by mixologist Molly Wellmann, who also owns several bars in Cincinnati, Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar is the place to go for the best Bourbon cocktails. You’ll be welcomed like a local to the traditional and classy bar. It has a warm atmosphere and knowledgeable staff who want to share what they know with you. The range is impressive and they stock a lot of other options besides Bourbon as well. Definitely the place to go if you’re looking for a cocktail experience.
The Old Talbott Tavern
Part of the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky, this quaint bar is attached to a hotel and well worth a visit. They put on live entertainment every night so you’re hearing some of the best local talent around whilst trying some amazing Bourbons. The food is pretty amazing as well, as is the hospitality. It has a past that goes back to 1779 so it is deeply ingrained with Bourbon history. Well worth a visit for the stories as well as the Bourbon
Specialising in pizza, craft beer and Bourbon, Garage Bar is the place to come if you want a relaxed night out. They have an amazing range of drinks on offer, and their Bourbon list is too big to fit on their menu. Everything from the big players to smaller local brands appear here. The pizza is also pretty damn impressive, and who doesn’t love a good dram and a slice?
Against the Grain Brewery and Smokehouse
Like Gargae Bar, Against the Grain specialises in craft beer, but they also serve some fine Bourbon. The atmosphere is lively and exciting and you the staff and more than welcoming. The menu is exciting as well and you will definitely find something to enjoy, whether its Bourbon, beer or food. It may not be as sophisticated as a lot of Bourbon bars, but this brewery is everything you look for in a good night out.
This bar has a huge selection of around 130 Bourbons to choose from. They have been around since the 1870s and know a thing or two about how to serve good Bourbon. The food menu is pretty impressive and you have both big name Bourbon makers and smaller brands to choose from on the drinks menu. Wonderful atmosphere that will have you returning every time you’re in Kentucky.
