We've built in exclusive distillery experiences each day!


Riding to Distilleries

Spend the day riding along the scenic backroads of Kentucky, en route to world-famous bourbon distilleries. When you arrive, take in the beautiful scenery and rich culture of Bourbon Country®.  Take some time to refuel at the distilleries and browse the visitor centers, make purchases, and get ready for an intimate experience you can only get with The Bourbon Country® Burn. 

Bourbon Bottle Sherpa Service

The Bourbon Country® Burn has a strict policy of no drinking and biking while on the course. However, there will be options to purchase specially labeled bottles as a Bourbon Country® Burn rider. To accommodate your purchases,  we offer an exclusive bottle sherpa service at no extra charge, which ensures your bottle purchases make it safely back to Bourbon Base Camp.

Special experiences await you! Each distillery has a distinct feel, and offers something different from the next. Built into the daily routes are unique, authentic experiences, which contribute to the flavor and culture of Bourbon Country®. 

Bourbon Sampling

No drinking and biking is allowed on the course. However, each evening after the day's ride, bourbon samples will be served back at Bourbon Base Camp for you to enjoy. The samples sipped in the evening will be representative of the distilleries visited that day by bike. Cocktails and beer will also be available for purchase.
