Take a Kentucky Bourbon Trail Tour with Pegasus - We're open and have exciting tours to offer! Pegasus is an official provider for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ®
At this time many distilleries and experiences throughout the state have made significant and permanent changes for 2020. Please read below before booking hotels and airfare. Most important is that your group is less than 10 people and that you are aware that many restaurants will not seat a group of 6 or more.
Kentucky attractions have maintained an excellent reputation throughout the federal shut down and our state’s reopening process. However with local regulations changing weekly to keep up with the pandemic it makes it particularly difficult to keep online content up to date with how each distillery and attraction is handling their respective reopening. General guidelines to be mindful of for 2020 and into 2021 are listed below. Pegasus is continually updating the site. Last update 11-16-20
We are open and can't wait to take you on a Kentucky Bourbon Tour!
Guidelines for groups planning a trip to Kentucky for a Kentucky Bourbon Tour in 2020:
Masks: Masks are required in every public space in Kentucky. This includes all restaurants, bars, retail space, and in areas where you cannot maintain a 6-foot distance between people.
Group Size: Many distilleries limit the group size to 10 or less. All distilleries require a reservation for a tour in 2020 regardless of group size. If you are a group of more than 10 you cannot do a tour at many of the distilleries operating in Kentucky in 2020. In addition many craft distilleries as a result of specific restrictions regarding tasting rooms and retail space cannot accommodate a group of 10. We recommend that any interested party discuss their goals with one of our expert coordinators by calling our office directly or through email.
Number of Distilleries in a day: In the past, a Kentucky Bourbon Tour group of any size could fit 3-4 distilleries into a 10-12 hour day experience. Since the available options are significantly more spread out we recommend that you rely on our experts to advise you.
Cost: As a result of restrictions and smaller group sizes on tours the cost for a distillery tour is changing almost daily. Our transportation cost and chauffeur/host cost has not changed, however a Kentucky Bourbon Tour that used to be $5 last year may be as much as $40 for the same experience this year. We are working with every group individually to ensure our cost is fair, transparent, and makes sense for your group.
Experiences: This part is the best. You no longer will be pushed around a property in a public group of 50 or more. Thanks to these new restrictions almost every Kentucky Bourbon Tour experience is now entirely private at each stop. This allows you and your group to have a more personal close up tour than you’ve ever been able to before. These types of intimate experiences will most likely never be seen again so take advantage while you can!
Restaurants: We recommend that you and your group plan out your dinners while you are in town. Some restaurants are not allowing groups of 6 or more to be seated at the same table. If you are planning a large group visit please keep this in mind. Many of our tourist destination restaurants have decided not to open until next year so less options make it hard to just show up and expect to be seated. We highly recommend planning out all dinners in advance of your visit to ensure you have a good time.
Private and Custom Kentucky Bourbon Tour Experiences: We are still accommodating groups every week for custom private experiences. Take a look here to see the exciting experiences we offer, or feel free to book your vehicle online here, and we will have one of our coordinators reach out to you to discuss your travel options and where to go.
Public Tours and ticketed experiences: Pegasus has specially selected group tours available. Please call our office at 502-458-2862 for details.
