Buy Packaged Bourbon at Airport and Carry On

We’re a little late on reporting it, but we still thought it was worth sharing. People traveling out of Louisville, Kentucky can now buy packaged bourbon (as of December 2017) at the airport beyond the security checkpoint and carry their purchase on board with them.

“We’re so excited to work with Paradies Lagardère to provide this carry-on option to travelers, especially those visiting to enjoy the state’s Bourbon craft,” said Karen Scott, Interim Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority in a press release. “Whether you’re arriving or departing – this allows visitors to have a taste of Kentucky.”

The following brands are currently available for purchase at the Distillery District Marketplace: Angel’s Envy, Bulleit, Evan Williams, Four Roses, Jim Beam, Knob Creek, Maker’s Mark, Old Crow and Wild Turkey. Additional selections are expected to be available in the coming months.

Nine distilleries–Bulleit, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Michter’s, Town Branch, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve–will participate in the event, opening their production facilities to tours, classes and other events. Continue reading Bourbon fantasy camp–adults only.
