LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Campbell House, one of Lexington’s most historic and prestigious hotels, has been designated as an official partner of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
An equestrian farm turned upscale hotel, The Campbell House, Curio Collection by Hilton, has paid homage to Kentucky since opening in 1951. A recently completed multi-million-dollar renovation ushered in a new era of history with 241 upgraded guest rooms, over 25,000 s.f. of redesigned event space, and The Rackhouse Tavern, its new restaurant and bar featuring over 300 bourbons and whiskies.
The Campbell House features convenient access to I-64 and I-75, and close proximity to local distilleries. Located on South Broadway, the hotel is already home to a large number of Kentucky Bourbon Trail guests and with this official partnership, The Campbell House has plans to further expand upon its bourbon-related hospitality offerings.
“We are honored to add one of Kentucky’s most iconic hotels as official partners of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour,” said Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association. “Visitors are pouring into Kentucky to enjoy our proud heritage, rich history and true authentic bourbon experience and we are proud to enrich their visit by offering truly world-class accommodations.”
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail offers visitors a first-hand educational experience into the art and science of crafting the world’s greatest bourbon. Established by the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail has become a globally recognized, bucket-list journey for visitors from all over the world who want to experience Kentucky’s bourbon culture first-hand. Last year, the famed Kentucky Bourbon Trail and Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour destinations welcomed nearly two million visitors.
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail has become one of the state’s most popular tourism attractions with visitors from all 50 states and more than 50 countries. The experience will celebrate its 21st birthday in 2020 by throwing a year’s worth of bourbon fetes with distilleries across the Bluegrass hosting a variety of pop-ups, parties, and events to mark the milestone.
