The Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour is commemorating its 13th birthday with the unveiling of a new online store featuring clothing, barware, specialty items and more.
"With the growth in popularity of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail adventure, our visitors have been clamoring for more souvenirs to remember their experiences," said Adam Johnson, Director of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour.
Kentucky Bourbon Trail merchandise also can be found in select stores and attractions throughout the Commonwealth. Items include barrel staves and barrel heads, rocks glasses, and apparel.
One particular item, the official Kentucky Bourbon Trail leather Passport holder, is ideal for anyone getting ready to embark on a Kentucky Bourbon Trail quest, Johnson said. It can be personalized with the recipient’s name and comes with a Passport, ready for stamps.
"We get dozens of phone calls from people planning a surprise visit to the legendary Kentucky Bourbon Trail distilleries for their friend, spouse or loved one," Johnson said. "And they all want something to put in a box besides our brochure and map. The new personalized Passport holder will become the way to let someone know that they’re about to start the tour of a lifetime and learn about the rich history and proud heritage of America’s only native spirit, Kentucky Bourbon."
The official Kentucky Bourbon Trail includes six distilleries operated by members of the Kentucky Distillers' Association. They are Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve.
