Castle & Key Tour + Keeneland Tailgating
- This event has passed.
Another Big Bourbon Adventure!
Join us for a roadtrip to Castle & Key in Frankfort, the former Old Taylor Distillery site dating back to the late 1800s.
The day will begin by meeting up at the Paddock Shops in Louisville near Drakes. We will start our morning off with coffee and a light snack. We will then travel together by bus to the distillery, leaving promptly at 8AM. Upon arrival at Castle & Key we will be welcomed with signature cocktails in the Shooking. Marianne Barnes Eaves, Master Distiller and female trailblazer, will lead guests through history and a neat tasting of Castle & Key gin and vodka.
Guests will enjoy a 1.5 hour tour of the 113 acre property, including the iconic Castle, Springhouse, warehouses, and gardens, learning about their restoration, principled distilling process and daring vision. Guests will conclude the experience in the gift shop and have the opportunity to browse around and purchase merchandise and spirits.
***The experience will be predominantly outside, exploring areas of various terrain. Please be conscious of the weather and wear appropriate outerwear and footwear. Closed toe shoes with no heel are required.***
The fun continues, as we wrap up our time at Castle & Key, we will load back onto the bus and depart for Keeneland, the internationally renowned racecourse, at noon. We will enjoy an afternoon of tailgating on the “Hill” where you can listen to Bluegrass music, watch live racing from a jumbo television screen, wagering options and more. We will begin our trip back to Louisville around 4PM.
