Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail expands to 27 stops

Urban Bourbon TrailLOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 31, 2013) — The popularity of the Urban Bourbon Trail, coupled with the growth of Louisville’s restaurant scene, has led the Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau to expand the five-year-old tourism experience to 27 establishments.

About 35,000 copies of the new 94-page Passport are now available at each stop and at the Louisville Visitors Center (301 S. Fourth St., 40202). The passport identifies all 27 restaurants on neighborhood maps with its address, hours of operation, a short description and a suggested cocktail, along with space for notes. The booklet also includes instructions on how to use the Passport and pointers on how to taste bourbon.
