Bourbon Rocks & Ruins Elevated Experience

Bourbon Rocks & Ruins, a new exclusive experience from Mint Julep Tours and Transportation, uncovers the history of O.F.C. Distillery. This special tour digs into the excavated ruins of Col. E.H. Taylor’s late 1800s operation, nicknamed Bourbon Pompeii, on the grounds of the current Buffalo Trace Distillery

in Frankfort. Highlights include an extensive after-hours private tour of the excavation site led by Bourbon Archaeologist Nick Laracuente, guided tasting of Buffalo Trace Distillery bourbons in the Old Taylor House, and a craft cocktail paired with appetizers in the George T. Stagg Gallery.

Guests will visit century-old spaces throughout the grounds learning from the state’s leading bourbon-focused archaeologist, Nick Laracuente. From the Old Taylor House, the oldest residential structure in the county, to the relics in the George T. Stagg Gallery, every aspect of this insider tour is rich with history. Laracuente has spent studies lost and forgotten distilleries across Kentucky one artifact at a time. His research focuses on uncovering distilling and imbibing traditions of the past, many of which were wiped out by Prohibition.

The cost is $175 per person. Bourbon Rocks & Ruins will support future preservation of Kentucky’s abandoned historical sites, donating $20 of each ticket purchase to the Woodford County Heritage Committee. Tour departs from the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville at 3:45 p.m. and returns at approx. 9:30 p.m. Bourbon Rocks & Ruins is limited to 22 guests.
