Had a fun time. We visited 3 places. Maker' Mark, Jim Beam and Heaven Hill. Disappointed Maker's Mark was shut down so we couldn't visit everywhere. Got to put the wax on our own bottle of Makers :)

Hi! We will be attending the Kentucky Derby & have booked the bourbon/horse tour with Mint Julep. Very excited but worried about bathroom breaks as I have Crohn's disease. Are there bathrooms on the bus or how often does the driver stop for bathroom breaks?

Our Public Bourbon Tour vehicles are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. For Custom Tours we can make the request to try and secure a vehicle with wheelchair accessibility, but that is pending availability.
