Louisville’s Bourbon Boom

No sign of this bubble bursting anytime soon.

by MIKE HALL, Owner/ Broker/ Agent


It’s no secret that Kentucky is the world’s largest producer of bourbon. While the world enjoys our heavenly distillations, Louisville is enjoying the taste of a tourism boom.

According to the Kentucky Distillers Association’s recent economic impact study, bourbon is just beginning its day in the sun. The Courier Journal reports that bourbon currently contributes $8.5 million to the state economy and is expected to grow to $10 million by 2020. With more than 52 distilleries spread across the state, tourists find Louisville to be a deliciously interesting hub. What better way to end the day than at Louisville’s very best bourbon-centric restaurants?

"When you get to the local level, this has been tremendous for Louisville," says Mayor Greg Fischer. "Bourbonism is the first year-round tourist experience we've ever had."
