Frankfort KY Bourbon Tours, Wineries, & More

Frankfort is the capital of Kentucky, and undoubtedly, is home to some of the best bourbon on earth. This is a great little town where history meets bourbon and mother nature. This river city is surrounded by rolling hills, as well as horse farms, and offers a wide variety og outdoor activities and culinary experiences.


Frankfort Distillery Offerings

The Frankfort area has a handful of smaller, micro distilleries, but is mostly known for the bourbon giants that operate in its region. This includes the hard-to-get-into Buffalo Trace, Wild Turkey, Heaven’s Door, and Four Roses. Frankfort is also en route to Lexington, making it an easy stop en route to distilleries there. 

Bourbon Highlights - Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace, Castle and Key


Frankfort Brewery Offerings

Similar to its wine offerings, Frankfort has a smaller beer scene that serves some quality pours and makes for a good stop along the bourbon trail. Here you can find a few microbreweries, as well as an outpost for one of our favorite Kentucky brewers, Goodwood Brewing.

Brewery Highlights - Sig Lushers Brewery, Stainless Brewing & Spirits, Goodwood Frankfort 


Frankfort Wine Offerings

 Frankfort has one of the smaller wine selections of our regions, but for what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. Here you can find some homely vineyards with attentive staff. More importantly, you get to enjoy family-made wine in the hills of Kentucky, like people have been doing for hundreds of years. 

Wine Highlights - Equus Run, Lovers Leap, Rising Sun


Everything Else

There's definitely not as much to do here as there is in Louisville or Lexington. However, given that Frankfort is the capital, there is a ton of history here that you can't get anywhere else. When it's nice, you can kayak or canoe, too!
