Bourbon and Bridles Experience

This tour combines two of Kentucky’s most treasured icons: bourbon and Thoroughbreds. Learn fun facts about why horse racing and bourbon go together, including what makes a Thoroughbred a Thoroughbred, and a bourbon a bourbon. Pick up facts about distillery owners who have also won the Derby, and how some guests imbibed on Derby day during Prohibition.

The tour ends with a bourbon flight from the Museum’s Derby Cafe Express, an official stop on Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail, where guests will enjoy a bourbon tasting along with an interactive lesson on how to make and enjoy the famous Mint Julep.
