Kick off September and “Bourbon Heritage Month” in the Bluegrass with a Labor Day holiday visit to one of the Commonwealth’s signature Bourbon distilleries.

“We’re extremely proud of the hard-working men and women who have crafted the world’s finest Bourbons for generations,” Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association tells BourbonBlog.com.

“We can’t think of a better way to honor them – and our nation’s only native spirit – than a visit to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail during the Labor Day holiday weekend.”
