Buffalo Trace and Copper & Kings offer free tours

Visitors can now take tours of Kentucky distilleries Buffalo Trace, Copper & Kings and Barton 1792 for free as part of a new joint programme.

The Barrelled & Bold tour programme brings together three distilleries all within easy driving distance – Frankfort-based Bourbon distillery Buffalo Trace, spirits producer Copper & Kings in Louisville and Bardstown Bourbon maker Barton 1792.

The tour aims to make the experience of visiting the distilleries “more accessible than ever before”.

Tours at the three sites are free and booking is advised. A discount will also be offered on merchandise, though excluding alcohol.

The first discount will be 10%, the second stamped stop will be rewarded with a 15% discount, and the final stamped visit will receive a 20% discount and a commemorative gift.

Visitors can register online at barreledandbold.com and will receive a B&B pass at the first distillery stop.

“Bringing together the union of the world’s most award-winning distillery, Kentucky’s oldest fully operating distillery in the Bourbon capital of the world, and perhaps the most imaginative new distillery in America, is something akin to the aligning of stars,” said Mark Brown, president and CEO of US drinks group Sazerac, which owns Buffalo Trace and Barton 1792.

“However, this is not just serendipity, this is allowing for a partnership that can provide an exciting, adventurous window to the past, present and future of distilling in America, well beyond the borders of Kentucky.”
