The Bourbon Trip is scheduled for September 29-October 1, 2023.

We have nine (9) rooms on hold at Jailers Inn Bardstown, KY website  111 W Stephen Foster Ave.   Downtown Bardstown walking distance to shops and restaurants.  See description of the “Jail” below.  . 

The Old Nelson County Jail housed prisoners from 1797 till 1987. The front building, sometimes referred to as the “Old Jail” was constructed in 1819. Records indicated that John Rogers, architect of St. Joseph Cathedral, performed certain carpentry on this structure. The upper floor of this native limestone building, with 30 inch thick walls, contained two cells and an “upstairs dungeon” to house prisoners.

The back jail was built in 1874 and is completely surrounded by a stone wall. The front jail was then made into the jailer’s residence. Both the jail and jailer’s residence were used and occupied until 1987. It was the oldest operating jail complex in the state of Kentucky and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places

Make your way to Bardstown on Friday September 29th… check into your room  ( you will need to call the Inn to pick one of the rooms that I have on hold… 502-348-5551 ask for Paul and tell him you  are with the Chattanooga Ski Club.) This is very important; you must call and hold your room.  You book your own room, that way you are in control of your reservation and as with all lodging reservations you will be able to cancel your room according to the Inn’s cancellation policy.    I thought this would be a fun place to stay and hopefully we can fill the entire “Old Jail” with CSC and take over the place. 

There are other options to stay in Bardstown, next door is the “Talbott Tavern”  502-348-3494, we have stayed there many times in the past, they have the Oldest Tavern in Kentucky with live music, a nice restaurant (which is where we will have group dinner on Friday night the 29th).   Please note** I have NO rooms on hold here this year; however you can call and book a room if you wish.  

We will have a group dinner Friday night at the Talbott Tavern 6:30 p.m.

Saturday breakfast 8:30 am at your lodging

9:30 a.m. Bardstown Tour will pick us up and we will start our distillery tour for the day.   I am still working on our touring schedule for Saturday and will update you as I finalize what distilleries we will tour this year.  Also working on a “cocktail making” class that we have enjoyed for the past two years.  This class is lot of fun.  The Cocktail class has turned into one of the highlights of the day.   The cost of the tour bus, distillery tickets, lunch, and cocktail class will be announced as soon as the details are finalized. 

There will also be a group dinner planned for Saturday night.

Sunday 10:00 a.m. private tour of the ‘Old Jail.” 

Depart to drive home.  On your way home if you have not visited the “National Corvette Museum” located in Bowling Green you will be very close. 

For now you must sign up on the CSC website, sign the waiver BOOK YOUR ROOM, let me know what room you have booked… 423-902-6095.. Call or text.   I have to have an accurate count of how many going on trip in order to get a price for the Saturday tour.  Please let me know when you have booked your room.

Looking forward to being “Incarcerated” with you,
