KY Bourbon trail

We did a ride up to Frankfort KY to do part of the Bourbon trail and hit a few other rides around there. We rode part of the red river gorge area, Nada tunnel and the KY Natural bridge.

One of our most memorable vacations was when we toured through Kentucky, we stopped at the Woodford distillery , got me started drinking bourbon, in fact enjoying one right now, I would like to do it again one day. Looks like a great trip, thanks for sharing.

You have to come back, you still have Maker's Mark, Jim Beam, Heaven Hill and Four Roses to go.
Looks like you had a good time, lots of good roads in the area you visited.

You are correct, loved the area, some great riding. Didn't do anymore distilleries after Woodford Reserve, couldn't imagine any of the others would top that one.

I've been to Maker's Mark, Jim Beam and Woodford Reserve. You should really visit Maker's Mark distillery if Woodford impressed you. I enjoyed it much more than the WR tour. You can tell MM and WR are flush with cash because their distilleries are spotless, well manicured gardens, interactive gift shops, etc. Jim Beam distillery is all business. Built for one thing: producing the highest volume of Bourbon possible. Looks much more like a "working" distillery than the other two. They aren't the leading producer of bourbon in the world for nothing.

hmmm
been wanting to do the "distillery tour" for a long time.

Problem is that we cannot find a designated driver.

I would REALLY like to hear from someone that has some experience with this distillery tour thing - AND the good roads to ride around the area.

Thanks,

Kevin

P.S. to the original poster - thanks for the pics and the great music !!!

No matter where you go, there you are.

Thank you for your picturesque slide show...even though I live nearby the beauty of the area is not really appreciated till seeing it through another's eyes. Us locals take it all for granted...Thanks again.

I know exactly what you mean, I live in East TN, and there is not a bad road in any direction from where I live. KY has some beautiful areas to ride in and luck for me it is just up the road. The red River Gorge area was great!

If you are interested here is a link that has a lot of information and if you post on the Kentucky board some of those fine people can give some great info. We stayed in Frankfort and was a very nice area, rode to the red river gorge area which is real nice, rode through the Nada tunnel and went to the Kentucky Natural bridge, you can Google all that.
