Bourbon and Beyond

Bourbon & Beyond...Are you having fun yet?

A great way to celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month is along Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail in September.

Hang on and head out to Louisville for Bourbon and Beyond, a three-day festival September 20 – 22 featuring headliners such as Foo Fighters, Robert Plant, Hall and Oates, ZZ Top and Zak Brown Band…and many, many more fabulous acts.

National Bourbon Day, June 14th

In 1964, Congress designated bourbon as “The Official Spirit of America”. On June 14th, we celebrate the drink that has made Kentucky famous. Fun fact: 95% of the world’s Bourbon is produced in Kentucky.

To celebrate America's Native Spirit and National Bourbon Heritage Month, don’t miss the Kentucky Bourbon Festival September 18-22. The festival, not far from Bullitt County, is dedicated to celebrating the history and art of distilling bourbon whiskey. This is one of the most favorite festivals in Kentucky.

Spring time at Bernheim is a BIG DEAL!

If you are looking to celebrate spring in a BIG way, plan a trip to Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in Clermont, Ky to visit Forest Giants in a Giant Forest, a trio of giant forest trolls that are the work of renowned Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Nestled inside the vast forest block of Bernheim, the whimsical creatures are sculpted from recycled and repurposed materials, mostly recovered from the area within the arboretum and areas around Shepherdsville and surrounding Bullitt County near Louisville. The trolls were constructed from recycled wood from pallets and bourbon barrel staves salvaged from Bourbon Trail distilleries, fallen trees and scraps from the nearby Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, and are a reminder of the importance of protecting the natural environment.
