Bourbon has always been thought of as a man’s world, but women have been an integral part of the industry. From the beginning women have been distillery owners, executives, tasters, and bootleggers. We would love to introduce you to these bold women who defied the expectations of their time by making their way in a man’s world. We will then introduce you to the modern counterpart of these audacious women by visiting the three distilleries that have women as their Master Distillers. They are adding to the rich story of Kentucky’s bourbon history. We will drink a toast to this new breed of bourbon broads at Castle and Key, Jeptha Creed and Michter’s. The tour will last approximately 8 hours. Pickup will be at the Lexington Visitors Center or the James E. Pepper Distillery. Price $120: Includes lunch, along with tours and tastings at all three distilleries. Water and snacks will be included.
