LEXINGTON, Ky. - They may not be household names like Jim Beam or Wild Turkey, but Kentucky's craft bourbon distilleries now have their own tourist trail.
Seven artisan distilleries stretching from Marshall County in the far west to Mason County in the north are part of the tour.
Gov. Steve Beshear joined in a toast Friday in Lexington to announce the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour.
The new tourist attraction is an extension of the popular Kentucky Bourbon Trail that gives visitors an inside peak at bourbon brands sold worldwide.
The seven craft distilleries on the tour are Barrel House Distilleries in Lexington, Corsair Artisan Distillery in Bowling Green, Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon, MB Roland Distillery in Pembroke, Old Pogue Distillery in Maysville, Trail Distillery in Hardin and Willett Distillery in Bardstown.
