Do you like your bourbon with a kick? The Manhattan recipe is one of the most classic and notorious recipes featuring bitters, vermouth, a spicy bourbon, and garnished of cherry. R&R’s Manhattan Bourbon Tour takes you through the rolling hills of the Frankfort area, featuring some of Kentucky’s best-known distilleries surrounded by the horse farms and bluegrass that make the state famous. This tour dives deep into the industry that shaped the region into what we know today, and features the spicy bourbons of two of the oldest operating distilleries in the world. The tour finishes at Bulleit, for a taste of their award-winning high-rye whiskey.
INSIDER TIPS: Perfect for the first-time bourbon tourist, these distilleries will walk you through the fascinating history and mechanics of the distillation process. If doing a multiple-day tour, the Manhattan Tour on Day 1 makes for a great start. Tours on this leg will typically take slightly longer than the South or Urban areas.
