International recognition for Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour has achieved international recognition as one of the "10 Classic American Experiences."

The distinction comes by way of CNN International, which made the pronouncement this week.  "To get this type of recognition further solidifies Bourbon as America's official native spirit,"
said Eric Gregory, President of the Kentucky Distillers' Association in a news release.

The tour features six distilleries -- Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker's Mark, Wild Turkey, and Woodford Reserve.
