Once considered the “Wall Street of Whiskey” Louisville has been a spirits soaked civilization ever since Evan Williams first marketed his whiskey to the city in 1780. Up until the 1920’s, a portion of Main Street was known as “Whiskey Row” because of the more than 50 spirits related businesses that were operating there at the time. Thirteen years of Prohibition nearly decimated the industry, but now almost a century later, Louisville is brimming with Bourbon themed restaurants, attractions, accommodations and events. In addition to Louisville’s 10 distillery experiences, the Urban Bourbon Trail provides visitors a taste of what the city’s best Bourbon bars and restaurants have to offer.
While traversing the Urban Bourbon Trail ask about the city’s official cocktail, the Old Fashioned. All stops have their own version of Louisville’s signature drink, which was said to have been created here in the 1880’s at the local Pendennis Club. Be sure to stop and take a photo with Tom Bullock, located outside the Louisville Visitor Center, who worked as a bartender at the Pendennis club around the same time the Old Fashioned was invented.
