Kentucky Bourbon Tour 25-27 October, 2013

Detailed plans are still being worked out, but the date is set.

We will leave Lexington, KY at 8AM on Friday morning, 25 October to visit the Kentucky Cooperage and at least one distillery. We will return to Lexington that evening, and leave again at about the same time on Saturday morning to visit another couple of distilleries. Weather permitting, we will have a bonfire at the farm Saturday night. Sunday is optional for either another tour or just going home.

Naturally we will enjoy driving our wonderful back roads throughout the weekend.

Breakfast Friday morning will be at:

Panera Bread
3705 Palomar Centre Dr
Lexington, KY 40513

We will leave the restaurant parking lot at 8, to arrive at the Independent Stave Cooperage for a 9:30 tour. Closed shoes are required for the tour, and no pictures are allowed while in the facility. From the cooperage we will drive to Bardstown for more touring and lunch. The drive from Lexington to Bardstown is basically highway, so depending on your location and plans you may want to join us at the cooperage Friday morning.

Kentucky Cooperage
712 E Main St
Lebanon, KY 40033

We don't have enough people to get a room deal, so I will list these as the most convenient choices based on our departure point.

Comfort Suites
3060 Fieldstone Way
Lexington, KY 40513
859-296-4446

Hampton Inn
3060 Lakecrest Cir
Lexington, KY 40513
859-223-0088

Marriott Courtyard
3100 Wall St
Lexington, KY 40513
859-224-0460

I hope you both can make it. It will be good to see you again.

It is looking like this weekend is going to include all the forms of alcohol. The cooperage and two distilleries on Friday, and two more on Saturday. One of those also has a brewery, and we are considering a winery that afternoon to round out the event.
