Happy National Bourbon Day!
Also – Happy Fifth Anniversary to The B-Line®! That’s right, y’all. Five years ago the team at meetNKY – the Northern Kentucky Convention and Visitors Bureau – launched NKY’s bourbon trail. The B-Line® is a tasty and unique collection of some of the best bourbon bars in America; 5 distilleries, each with their own fascinating story to tell, and all of which are also on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour®; and some of the finest bourbon-centered restaurants in the NKY and Cincy Region.
In the past years when we’ve added new stops to The B-Line (not every year has added some,) we’ve only added a couple at a time. For example, one new bar and one new restaurant. But this year, to celebrate our rich bourbon scene here in Northern Kentucky as well as our fifth anniversary, we decided to make it an extra-big party and are adding FIVE new stops to The B-Line.
Join us in welcoming these delicious new stops to The B-Line!
