About the Kentucky
Bourbon Boys (and Girl)

The Kentucky Bourbon Boys started as a Hagan family outing with a group of nine men and one female driver in 2011.

The group was made up of novice bourbon drinkers and at that time, the passport for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail was smaller, with only six distilleries on the official trail. The group needed a driver for the day, so they recruited their daughter/niece/cousin/sister-in-law for the task. Seeing it as an opportunity for some good social media and blog content, she agreed.

The first bourbon tour was a prototype for all we’ve done for our guests since. We had a 15-passenger van, a steady driver, and memorable stories along the way. We learned about bourbon, the history, process, and stories of each distillery, and sampled some we hadn’t tried previously. Even better, we genuinely enjoyed the day together.


A month later we toured a second round of distilleries, and an idea was born. What if we could do this for other people? How exciting would it be to take others on tours to these amazing locations, share our knowledge of what we knew along the way about bourbon, Kentucky, our history, culture, and more?

In 2015 the idea came to life and we officially formed the business – Kentucky Bourbon Boys, and since then, the rest, as they say, is history.

We’ve met new friends at the distilleries and along the way, and thousands of visitors from across the U.S.A. and around the world on our customized tours throughout the state. We strive to provide a unique and truly Kentucky experience – as evident in our motto – “Bourbon country done right!”

Our Mission

Our mission is to offer our guests safe, fun, customized and memorable experiences throughout our home state. We will provide an authentic experience of Bourbon Country and its greatest sights, serving as ambassadors for Kentucky. We love serving and getting to know others. We strive to provide consistent and top-notch service to our guests and partners, while maintaining our core values as a family business.

We’re In the Business of Bourbon… and Making People Happy

Tasting bourbon is a joyous experience, and we believe booking your tour should be too – that’s why we pride ourselves on our timely attention to all of our guest’s inquiries to help them plan (and have) an incredible custom experience.

We used KBB for a bachelor party. First booking was very smooth and the coordination team was very prompt with communication about the tour. You also get more flexibility to pick distilleries that you want to visit vs just a set itinerary. They also pick you up from where you are staying so it is incredibly convenient. Larry W. was our tour guide and he was so kind, took pictures for us throughout the day, and shared fun facts and bourbon history on top of the tours we were able to take.

I can not stress enough how great of an experience we had and would 100% use them again for future bourbon country tours.

Had a great day with KBB on a custom tour. Have been on other bourbon tours, and it was so great to be able to customize our experience, Friendly, reliable, accommodating.
Larry D was our driver and made it a wonderful day for us!

Mara C.

Great communication from start to finish. Our Driver Bobby was a great guy, very informative and helpful.

Our guide Justin was on time / professional / fun to be around. Everything was on schedule – he gave great recommendations on other things to do while we were in Lexington.

Andrew Z.

Outstanding Experience! Happened upon their website when I was researching private Bourbon Trail mini-tours for myself and two brothers for our “Brothers’ Weekend” in Kentucky. Great website, great recommendations and referrals, so I thought I’d give them a try. Our coordinator, Abigail worked diligently with me to ensure we got our first choices in facilities to tour, made sure we had all the required information up front, arranged for transportation and a wonderful guide. The overall experience was phenomenal. I highly recommend the Kentucky Bourbon Boys to anyone thinking about arranging a tour of the Bourbon Trail.

Our tour with KBB was well beyond our expectations. From the friendly and knowledgeable driver (ask for Jared) to the ease of booking and accommodating nature, this was a great experience. Jared structured our day to maximize time on tours but also keep us on track. We will be going on additional tours with KBB when we go back!!



Kentucky Bourbon Boys would get six stars if I could rate them that high!! We’re already planning our trip back to Louisville & can’t wait to use them again.  They were super helpful in the planning process and truly made our trip amazing. Our driver Rusty was so knowledgeable & went above and beyond for our group. We visited Limestone Distillery, Maker’s Mark and Bardstown.  We had lunch at the Cozy Corner which our group thoroughly enjoyed. The tour was all inclusive and I literally cannot say better things about this tour service!!!

Rachelle J.

We had an awesome time on our tour with Kentucky Bourbon Boys. The ride was comfortable and convenient, taking us to 3 of the top rated distilleries in the world. The icing on the cake was Brian, our driver/tour guide, who was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He found time to squeeze in a bonus distillery on our way back to our hotel. I would recommend Kentucky Bourbon Boys to anyone looking to visit distilleries in KY.

Joey E.

Larry D was our Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour guide, I cannot recommend him enough. His knowledge and expertise made our trip so much more enjoyable. His attention to detail was perfect. He went above and beyond to meet our needs. Thanks again Larry

Nikki W.

Wow another great experience from KBB! Tim and team listened to our must haves and filled in the rest of opt 3 days with fun, unique, and interesting visits. Lunches were great. And then there is Rodger our “driver/guide”. I’m not sure there is anyone in Kentucky he doesn’t know as he seems to have never met a stranger. His vast wealth of knowledge of what’s going on what’s hot what’s happening in the bourbon industry was amazing. It really added an extra dimension of quality to our visit. He is so punctual and always so nice. It is a joy to have him take us around the state. The next time we book tours for Bourbon Country, it will be with KBB and we will of course ask for Roger yet again!

Craig M.

Our group of 7 guys had a great time in this 2 day distillery trip! Day one we went to Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and Four Roses and day two we went to Maker’s Mark, Heaven Hill and Willet. The driver, Chris, was amazing. He was very helpful getting us to where we needed to be at all of the stops. He stopped at a few liquor stores for us along the way that had some harder to find bourbons! He really went above and beyond to take care of us and I would definitely recommend Chris and Kentucky Bourbon Boys to anyone!

Aaron W.

Best day ever! We had Laura as our tour guide and she was amazing . We’ve taken private tours in Las Vegas, Nashville , etc . And today was by far the best! We had an amazing lunch and got to go to 3 fantastic distilleries ! If I could give more than 5 stars I would maybe minus a 1/2 star because Laura approved my husbands hat purchase (just kidding tho) thanks again Kentucky bourbon boys !! It was a great day ! And we will be returning !

First time going to Kentucky and KBB provided us one of the better trips my family and I had in a while. The first call with Tyler to set up the weekend was smooth and effortless with a peace of mind. Throughout the weeks to the final day prior to this past weekend, I would call with a few questions and every person I spoke to felt like it was the owner. Extremely patient and knowledgeable with outstanding customer service. Our driver Ethan really took our initial experience and elevated it into two fantastic days. We went to four roses, Buffalo, Woodford, whiskey thief, willet, makers, and bardstown. Besides the tours and tastings being outstanding, seeing other KBB tours having the same experience as us was reassuring that we found the right company. I really appreciate KBB and the experience they provided. If you’re looking to go to Kentucky, do it right, Book KBB.

AMAZING! The Kentucky Bourbon Boys did a great job for my tour. Scott took care of all 7 guests and made it special. We had some downtime and he added a couple more stops. It was the best experience. Thank you to Scott, the Kentucky Bourbon Boys, and all the nice people we met on the way. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do a tour.

Douglas B.

We were a group of 12 and had the BEST time with KBB!! I would highly recommend their tour company for all your bourbon trail experiences. Roger was fantastic and interacted with our group like he knew us for years!!

Dana D.

KBB was excellent! The staff was extremely helpful in assisting me with 2 days and 6 distillery tour. This was a gift for my brother and I needed a one stop shop. I asked to be able to experience large “corporate” type locations as well as back of the farm. The selections by KBB did not disappoint. Our driver Trevor was amazing! On time, great discussions and history about the regions and the specific distilleries we visited. I highly recommend KBB tours – special shout out to Abigail, Trevor, Mammy’s and the Stave!

Alex M.

If you’re planning a trip to KY for the trail, this is a great company to use. Had a great day everything they promised they did, and even more. Ask for Tim great tour guide!!!

Barry L.

Great care was put into making our tour remarkable. From booking agent to day’s tour driving ambassador, the staff exceeded expectations with thoroughness, kindness, and collaboration. Special shout out to Tyler (booking) and Roger (ambassador). With honor, I am happy to refer Kentucky Bourbon Boys!!! Cheers!!!
