Written by: Rebecca Banks

Cities such as Bardstown, Louisville, and Lexington are well-known for their growth in the bourbon industry, but according to a recent article in The Bourbon Review, the growth is beginning to shift North… to Northern Kentucky.

The authenticity that shines throughout the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati region is what truly sets the area apart from the “Bourbon Disney Worlds” further south.  According to the article, “once Northern Kentucky was barely a blip on the bourbon radar; now it’s home to some of the coolest up and coming distilleries.”

The distilleries the article references to include New Riff Distilling, Boone County Distilling Co., Neeley Family Distillery, Old Pogue Distillery, and Second Sight Spirits, all members of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour.

In addition to the unique distilleries, Northern Kentucky has a plethora of bourbon-centric bars and restaurants showcased via The B-Line.  More than just collecting stamps along the way and claiming free swag, The B-Line is all about experiencing the people and the hospitality of the area, according to the article.
