Bourbon Barons: The Ripys

April 3 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

This historic tour focuses on the Ripy family of Lawrenceburg, KY.

This tour includes visiting the uniquely beautiful Ripy Mansion in Lawrenceburg that will be conducted by a Ripy descendent, a special bourbon tasting at the Ripy Mansion, a stroll down Lawrenceburg’s “whiskey row” to learn of other prominent distillers of the era, and a tour and tasting at Wild Turkey Distillery and another at the Four Roses Distillery. Lunch is also included.
They will pick you up at a local hotel in Lexington for the drive to Lawrenceburg. Water and snacks are provided.
