Located on Main Street in downtown Louisville, Barrels & Billets lets visitors create and bottle their own bourbon. The distillery opened in Feb. 2022 and welcomed over 13,000 guests in its first year, officials said.
“We look forward to working with the Barrels & Billets team as we continue our tireless work to unite our historic industry and secure Kentucky as the one true home for Bourbon,” Gregory said. “We congratulate them on their success and gladly welcome them to the KDA.”
Established in 1999, the KDA's Kentucky Bourbon Trail consists of 46 distilleries stretching from southwestern to the tip of northern Kentucky, with some as far as 70 miles apart. Notable names on the trail include Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Woodford Reserve and Angel's Envy.
Barrels & Billets is also releasing a suite of three new bourbons. The Home Plate Series featuring baseball iconography includes Lucky Lumber Easy Drinking Bourbon, Lead Off Rich & Complex Bourbon and Smokin’ Fastball Smoked Bourbon. The $40 bottles will be available exclusively in store.
Advanced tickets to their custom bourbon and Flight School experiences are recommended due to high demand. Tickets can be secured at BarrelsAndBillets.com.
