Finding the Perfect Bourbon Cocktail
There really is no bad time to visit Kenucky’s famed Bourbon Country, but we do think visiting during the cold winter months has its benefits. The smooth, silky bourbon will warm you up from the inside out, and you’ll enjoy far fewer crowds in the regions most popular distilleries. At the Bourbon Manor Bed and Breakfast, the first fully bourbon-themed Bed and Breakfast in Kentucky, we take our drinks seriously. Our very own Bourbon Bar and Lounge, The Bunghole, is housed on property in a fully renovated 3-story historic tobacco barn. There, we craft some of the finest bourbon cocktails around, and also serve a variety of other drinks and small bites.
Before we can begin crafting the perfect bourbon cocktail, we must first talk about ingredients! Luckily in Bardstown, we’re surrounded by 6 incredible bourbon distilleries, many of them famous the world over. The 6 bourbon distilleries in the area include Barton 1792 Distillery and Visitor Center; Jim Beam American Stillhouse, Maker’s Mark Distillery, Four Roses Distillery, Willett Distillery, and Heaven Hill Distilleries Bourbon Heritage Center. Each is worth visiting in their own right, as they all work with their own unique flavors and traditions.
Getting our hands on the best ingredients is the easy part; deciding what to make is the hard part! What’s your favorite bourbon cocktail? Old standbys include drinks like the Old Fashioned, the Mint Julep, the Manhattan, a Whiskey Sour, or maybe even a Bees Knees. It certainly doesn’t end there!
