visitors seeking bourbon and hiking

Although not necessarily at the same time. We will be in Kentucky for 3-4 days in August, looking for a few bourbon brands we could visit and find stuff not readily available back in N. England, also like to hike. We were thinking of renting a cabin on Taylorsville lake for a couple of days as a base of operations. Any suggestions would be welcome.

  1. Not sure what kind of distribution you get in N. England but Heaven Hill and Buffalo trace are both great tours. If you have a large budget Heaven Hill has a few bottles they only sell at the distillery (or in Japan). Buffallo Trace has some limited bottlings as well but they are usually distributed to local shops in Frankfort. In Bardstown Toddy's has a good selection of bourbon. Limited bottlings of Four Roses are also something to keep your eye out for.
