A Spirited Tour

If you love bourbon, you've come to the right place. Louisville is home to the Urban Bourbon Trail, a self-guided sipping tour through the legend and lore of Kentucky's bourbon heritage. Hop on the trail to visit our most beloved bourbon bars (those well-stocked with at least 50 and up to 170 varieties of our stellar spirit), meeting bourbon-loving bartenders and like-minded sippers while enjoying bourbon-based cocktails, bourbon flights and, if you're hungry, some tasty bourbon-inspired cuisine. Bourbon barrel smoked salmon, anyone? Once you've hit six bars on the Urban Bourbon Trail, you've earned the rank of official Bourbon Country Citizen. Pick up your UBT passport at the downtown Louisville Visitors Center or download the UBT app. And be sure one of your stops is Lobby Brown at the Brown, where signature cocktails include Ali's Smash and the Brown Manhattan. Cheers!
