Experience Wilderness Trail Distillery

In Kentucky, there are more barrels of bourbon than there are people. Stanford is located within a short drive of many stops on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, including the closest option, Wilderness Trail Distillery.

After spending over 10 years as consultants and providing yeast and optimization services to most of the industry, Wilderness Trail Distillery launched their craft distillery in 2012 with a focus on making the highest quality Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, Vodka and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Rum. The founders are fermentation experts with more than 20 years of experience in the production of alcohol, and daily tours of their distillery focus on the science behind it.

In partnership with Wilderness Trail Distillery, overnight guests to the Stanford Inn at Wilderness Road who are interested in touring the distillery will receive one free ticket upon request. Contact us for more information on your free ticket and find out more about their tours at
