Time Is Running Out to Join the Chuck Cowdery Magical Mystery Bourbon Tour, June 11-13

If you're thinking about joining me in June for my exclusive, 3-day tour of Bourbon Country, reserve your spot now by calling Josh Dugan at 502-583-1433, ext 107, or email him at Time is running out.

The format is simple. Each morning we meet at The Galt House Hotel, board a clean, comfortable Mint Julep Tours bus, and head out to a distillery or some other cool place. If it's a distillery, we don't take the standard tour, we're treated to something special.

But we don't just visit distilleries. We go to Vendome, where the stills and other equipment are made. Vendome does not normally give public tours, but it's a place every whiskey fan should see. We also see how whiskey barrels are made, visit a couple of historic sites, and lunch each day at some characteristic Kentucky eatery. I'm with you the whole time. Since it's just 20 people, we all get to know each other and I have time to answer everyone's questions.

We cram a lot into each day without it seeming rushed. Mint Julep is very accommodating, so if the day runs a little long, everybody is okay with that. We usually get back to The Galt House by about 7 PM and the rest of the evening is yours. There are several restaurants and bars in The Galt House and many others within easy walking distance. Louisville also has a 'trolley' that circulates around downtown for a modest price.

Lodging is your choice, but Mint Julep is happy to make suggestions. They also receive preferred rates from several hotels. Simply call Josh Dugan at 502-583-1433, ext 107, or email him at

The first Chuck Cowdery tour, back in March, was a lot of fun. I promise that this one will be equally fabulous.
