Pegasus Distilled does more than point to point destination services; we show you how the destinations connect to tell your story. Pegasus will make sure you have the Perfect Kentucky Day.
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 most 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 these restrictions. Last update 7-30-20
Guidelines for groups planning a trip to Kentucky 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: All groups must be 10 or less. All distilleries require a reservation for a tour in 2020 regardless of group size. Smaller groups of less than 10 are required in 2020. Distilleries will not accept a group of more than 10 on their property at any point-period. If you are a group of more than 10 you cannot do a tour at any distillery operating legally 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: 2 distilleries a day instead of 3 or 4. In the past groups 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 choosing 2 distilleries per day to ensure an easy schedule and positive experience.
Cost: Experiences are generally more expensive. The cost of a custom bourbon tour experience is different as well during this time. 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 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 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: No more than 6 at a table. This part is another important item to keep in mind when planning your trip. We recommend that you and your group plan out your dinners while you are in town. Restaurants following COVID-19 restrictions 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 Experiences: We are still accommodating groups every week for custom private experiences. Feel free to book your vehicle online. Once you book 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 is not currently doing any recurring public tours until further notice. We may have selected experiences later this year. Please call our office for details.
