FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 31, 2012) — The Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour commemorates its 13th birthday with the unveiling of a new online store featuring clothing, barware, specialty items and more.
“With the growth in popularity of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail adventure, our visitors have been clamoring for more souvenirs to remember their experiences,” said Adam Johnson, director of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour.
Kentucky Bourbon Trail merchandise also can be found in select stores and attractions throughout the Commonwealth. Items include wood-burned barrel staves and barrel heads, rocks glasses and apparel.
Created by the KDA in 1999, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour features six distilleries, each offering a unique and educational experience on crafting the world’s finest Bourbon: Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve.
One particular item, the official Kentucky Bourbon Trail leather Passport holder, is a perfect gift for those getting ready to embark on their Kentucky Bourbon Trail quest, Johnson said. It can be personalized with the recipient’s name and comes with a Passport ready for stamps.
“We get dozens of phone calls from people planning a surprise visit to the legendary Kentucky Bourbon Trail distilleries for their friend, spouse or loved one,” Johnson said. “And they all want something to put in a box besides our brochure and map. The new personalized Passport holder will become the way to let someone know that they’re about to start the tour of a lifetime and learn about the rich history and proud heritage of America’s only native spirit, Kentucky Bourbon.”
