Do you like your bourbon with a kick?   The Manhattan is one of the most classic recipes, featuring bitters, vermouth, a spicy bourbon, and a cherry garnish.  R&R’s Manhattan Bourbon Tour takes you through the rolling hills of the Frankfort area, surrounded by the horse farms and bluegrass that make the state famous. This tour features the spicy bourbons of two of the oldest operating distilleries in the world, and finishes with a modern take on a classic spirit.
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.
