Please note date of the 2021 Bardstown, KY Bourbon Tour...
October 1, 2, 3, 2021
Bardstown, KY*** Please note; there are no plans to make this a yearly trip.
TOUR: Distilleries On Saturday October 2nd. We will tour "Makers Mark" around 9:30 a.m. Around 11:30 we will go to "Bardstown Bourbon", yes we went there last year, however it is the only distilleriey that offers a "Cocktail Making" class, ( I have already signed us up for the class). We will also have lunch here. ** The price of the tour includes a $20.00 lunch (we will receive a menu and you can pre-order what you want with a $20.00 limit.... ** tour company will get the tip... Note* if you want alcohol with your lunch it is not inlcuded in the lunch price. You can order alcohol on your own. After lunch is the "Cocktail Making" class. When we leave "Bardstown Bourbon (we are still working on the 3rd. distilleriey, I welcome suggestions). The price of the tours includes distllery tour fee, lunch, cocktail class, TBD 3rd distillery, transportaion form the Tavern (pick up location for van), transportaion from Tavern to each location and back to the Tavern. $291.50 per person. The Cocktail Class we went to when we toured Louisville, KY in 2018 was so much fun and everyone said that was the best part of that trip, so I thought I would add one for this trip. You will need to make your check payable to the CSC as the club DOES NOT HAVE A CLUB C/C. Treasure Tom Dubose will have to send payment to the tour company so we will need to collect payments to reimburse the club treasury. I will send details later when payment is due and cancellation policy for the tour.
**** please note this year we can only have 10 people on this trip... we already had our 10 before I asked about the "Cocktail Class". Would you believe that they only allow 10 at a time for the class? So I disabled registration for this trip and called it full with those of us already signed up. I will set up a "waiting list".
* Friday make your way to Bardstown, if you would like you can arrive early in time to tour other distilleries close to Bardstown or other places to see along the way. Group dinner is Friday Night October 1st @6:00 p.m at the "Rik House Resturant" ( again I was told they will not take a "Group" larger than 10 so 10 it is this year). The "Rik House" is one of the best in Bardstown you can go online to look at the menu ahead of time if you wish. Walking distance from your rooms.
Saturday night October 2nd. no planned group dinner, however "Mammy's Kitchen" live music on Saturday night, walk across the street from the Tavern and Jailers Inn. You can also make reservations to eat at the Tavern Resturant OR Barbie and I discovered this drug store (walking distance),with an actual soda fountain all flavors of ice cream and I understand they make the best hamburges in town!! Just saying! Could be a choice.
Historic District Bardstown was settled in 1780 and was selected as the county seat of Nelson County, then part of Virginia. It is Kentucky's second oldest city. More than 300 buildings in Nelson County are on the National Register of Historic Places; nearly 200 of lthem are in the historic Downton District.
