Northern KY Bourbon Tours, Wineries, & More

Northern Kentucky is what most locals call the Greater-Cincinnati area. It’s home to the gorgeous riverfront towns Covington and Newport, with many homely towns surrounding them. In this area, you will find plenty of drink, grub, art, and entertainment. NKY makes for a wonderful day trip, and we would be glad to show you around!


NKY Distillery Offerings

NKY is home to a few really key bourbon destinations, with a handful of craft distillers in the area. This area also has a great history of old river town gambling and bootlegging, so it really is a fantastic area to have some drinks and soak in some culture

Bourbon Highlights - Boone County, New Riff Distillery, Pensive Distillery


NKY Wine Offerings

The main cities in NKY are rather populated, leaving little space for a winery to operate. However, in the outlying towns, there are indeed some of the best wineries in the state. There are also a few nice spots en route to Louisville and back, making a perfect addition to any agenda. 

Wine Highlights - Atwood, Elk Creek, Verona
