CHOOSING YOUR ITINERARY… WE CAN HELP!
Planning your route can be a bit overwhelming. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure where to go– most people don’t at this stage! The most important thing is to narrow down your date and your group size. That’s all you need in order to book the right vehicle, which is always the first step of the process. Reserving it is easy, by phone or online, and only requires a refundable one-hour deposit. Most popular dates, especially Saturdays and anything during peak bourbon tour season (April through October) should be reserved as far in advance as you can. The itinerary and other details can all come much later as we help you plan your perfect day. Anyone on our office staff can help guide you through the vehicle choices and choosing a date, and can give you a good starting place as you start to choose your itinerary.
Once you’ve got your date and your vehicle set, we’ll help you choose a set of distilleries for your group to visit in your own private chauffeured vehicle. A three-day itinerary is available which will allow visits to all 10 Kentucky Bourbon Trail distilleries, or choose your 3-4 favorites for one full-day excursion. Due to travel time between the distilleries, we recommend choosing distilleries within one region to make the most of your time. An easy rule of thumb is to budget 2 hours per stop, including travel time, the distillery tour, tasting, and visit to the gift shop. Once your vehicle is booked, our bourbon coordinators are available to you (by appointment) as many times as you need to get your itinerary just right, from booking the right distilleries to choosing a lunch stop to knowing what type of shoes to wear– it’s all part of the 5-star service you’ll only get at Copper Still Tours!

Our special day rates make an all-day bourbon tour an affordable option for groups of any size. This option provides a chauffeured vehicle for a full eight hours, plus pickup and dropoff anywhere within 100 miles of Louisville at no additional charge. Prices include all transportation costs, unlimited stops and mileage, and the initial gratuity for the chauffeur. Our private vehicles range in price from $596 to $1400 per day and can accommodate groups from 2 to 38.
Pricing is per vehicle, not per person, so larger groups have a lower per-person average for the same vehicle. The average all-day tour price in 2016, per person, was $65 for a group of 20, $85 for a group of 10, $120 for a group of 6. Call or email to let us help you choose a vehicle and price range that fits your needs! We offer public tours as well, where guests buy a ticket on a tour group and ride with other passengers; for smaller groups this can be a more economical option than a custom tour.
Vehicle prices do not include distillery or other venue admissions. You are welcome to purchase your own tickets for the distilleries– nearly all are available online. We highly recommend getting advance tickets where possible, although most distilleries do (grudgingly in some cases) allow you to purchase them at the door. If you prefer, you may take advantage of our concierge service, which is $60 per person in addition to the vehicle price. This includes booking the standard tour for each member of your group at up to 3 distilleries of your choice* and arranging a lunch reservation if applicable. You can also choose to add any of our catered menu options if you wish. For your convenience, these charges will be added to the cost of your trip so you can have everything taken care of for a hassle-free experience.
