Winter is the Perfect Time for Bourbon Tasting in Kentucky

We are nestled in the small quiet town of Burlington KY, and conveniently close to major highways. Let us help you map out your Bourbon Trail tour today. We can provide a driver (and a car) to whisk you away for a day, afternoon or a quick outing right down the street. Come back to Burlington and enjoy sipping bourbon by the fire pit or in the comfort of your room. Then, take a quick walk down the street to either the Tousey House or Washington Square Café for some southern fare.

Call us for more information at 859-689-5097 and to book your weekend getaway now.

Bourbon is great to cook with as well. For November and December, we are featuring a bourbon/orange/pecan crème brûlée for breakfast. We also make a bourbon BBQ sauce for wings, and a bourbon mushroom sauce for rib eye steaks! It adds notes of caramel and smoke and enhances stews and chili as well.

A bit of background on Bourbon

Bourbon is an American Whiskey produced under a specific set of guidelines, and predominantly made in southern Kentucky. This fine spirit had its start in the 1700s, with the first settlers of Kentucky. In those days, difficult-to-transport crops were instead turned into much easier-to-move whiskies. These early whiskies also happened to offer a welcome respite from a laborious frontier life. Over successive generations, Kentuckians have continued making and refining these unique whiskies, often using the same process as their ancestors. Today, you will find a range of Bourbon styles, including traditional, high-rye, and high-wheat bourbons.
