LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The success of the Urban Bourbon Trail has led the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau to expand the program to 20 establishments. Newly designed passports were delivered to each stop in time for the program’s fourth anniversary on May 30.
The new stops are Dish on Market, the Derby Cafe at the Kentucky Derby Museum, Avalon, Bristol Bar and Grille Downtown, Limestone, Village Anchor, Doc Crow’s Southern Smokehouse and Raw Bar.
Open to residents and visitors age 21 and older, the Urban Bourbon Trail Passport program allows individuals to collect stamps from six of the participating stops and be rewarded with a special gift that can be claimed at the Louisville Visitors Center on South Fourth Street. There is no time frame for completing the passport.
The 102-page passports can be obtained at the visitors center, at any of the stops on the Urban Bourbon Trail or by downloading either an iPhone or Android app.
Each location is identified on a map with its address, hours of operation, a short description, a suggested cocktail, pointers on how to taste bourbon like an expert and space for notes.
There is also a map and guide to the Kentucky distilleries that offer public tours.
