BARDSTOWN BOURBON CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
The Historic District, centered in the downtown area, includes sites such as St. Josephs Basilica - the first Catholic church west of the Allegany mountains, The Old Talbott Tavern, the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History, and the wonderful and famous My Old Kentucky Home State Park, featured on the Kentucky quarter.
Bardstown also boasts the title of "Bourbon Capital of the World." There are six bourbon distilleries in town - Heaven Hill, Barton Brands, Willet Distillery, Preservation Distillery, Bardstown Bourbon Company, and Lux Row Distillers. Several other distilleries are within a short drive. The well-known Maker's Mark distillery is nestled in the hills and valleys of Loretto, just outside town. The world-famous Jim Beam distillery is also very near and is a must-see for visitors to the Bardstown area. Bardstown will soon welcome a ninth distillery, Kentucky Owl Bourbon.
Whether it is simply a sightseeing visit to the many attractions, a stopover at a bed and breakfast, or a business trip to the city's ever-growing industrial parks, Bardstown has it all. We are a community rich in pride and richer in hospitality.
