Touring New Cities Safely

When was the last time you traveled to a foreign place? About a year ago, I started thinking about different ways to enjoy new cities without the fear of being attacked or robbed, so I began focusing more and more on learning what I needed to before I headed out. It was really interesting to see how much of a difference it made to do a little reading before I boarded a plane, and I have to be honest, some travel tips have saved me more than once. I wanted to make an easy-to-read website about touring new cities safely, so I made this blog.

6 Tips For Planning Your First Bourbon Tour

If you plan on touring the Bourbon Trail, you probably intend to visit a variety of distilleries. A bourbon tour can give you a unique look into the process of making whiskey. You can learn about the different methods used to make bourbon, sample some of the products, and purchase exclusive bottles from specialized distilleries.

That all sounds exciting, but how can you make sure that you're making the most of your first tour? Here are a few tips to help you prepare.

1 - Book Your Tours in Advance

The most popular distilleries on the Bourbon Trail often get booked up quickly. To ensure that you get the spot you want, book your tours ahead of time. This will help avoid disappointment if a location is already at capacity for the day you're visiting.

2 - Research What Each Distillery Offers

Not all distilleries on the Bourbon Trail offer the same experiences. Make sure to research what each stop offers and decide which ones you'd like to visit first. Some distilleries may provide a tour of their production area, while others only offer sampling opportunities. Knowing ahead of time will help ensure that you make the most out of your day.

3 - Stay Hydrated

Your safety is of utmost importance, especially when you're sampling alcohol. Make sure to stay hydrated throughout the day and take regular breaks in between each distillery. You may also want to consider bringing a small snack with you, as some distilleries don't offer food options.

4 - Explore Bourbon Distilleries Off the Beaten Path

Though the standard Bourbon Trail is already filled with amazing experiences, there are plenty of other distilleries off the beaten path that may offer unique experiences. Research less-visited distilleries in your area and consider visiting them while you are on tour.

5 - Expect to Learn a Lot

Bourbon is a complex spirit that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whether you're just beginning to explore the world of whiskey or you are an experienced connoisseur, expect to learn something new at each stop. From production methods to tasting techniques, there's always something new to discover on a Bourbon Trail tour.

6 - Make a Route & Stick To It

Plan ahead of time which distilleries you'd like to visit and create a route that makes sense for your group. This will help ensure that you don't get lost or waste any time during the tour. It also helps to have access to a map in case you decide to take any detours along the way.
