Lonely Planet had this to say about Kentucky bourbon country:

The state of Kentucky is known for its rolling hills topped with stately horse farms, its fierce devotion to college basketball and, most importantly, its bourbon. The state’s distilling heritage runs deep, and those looking for a taste should head straight to Kentucky Bourbon Country, the golden triangle between Louisville, Lexington and Elizabethtown where this seasoned spirit comes to life. You’ll find an enticing network of the country’s most well-known distilleries and top-notch restaurants with bourbon-inspired menus.

But this industry isn’t so steeped in tradition that it forgets progress – craft distillers are opening their doors, long defunct bourbon districts are being revitalized, and in 2018 the Frazier Museum will be named the official starting point of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
