Bourbon Barons: The Ripys

This historic tour focuses on the Ripy family of Lawrenceburg, KY.  They will take you on a journey beginning with the young Irishmen, James and John Ripy, who left their home in Tyrone, Ireland for the cliffs of the Kentucky River.

This tour includes visiting the uniquely beautiful Ripy Mansion in Lawrenceburg that will be conducted by a Ripy descendent, a stroll down Lawrenceburg’s “whiskey row” to learn of other prominent distillers of the era, and a tour and tasting at Wild Turkey Distillery.
They will pick you up at a local hotel in Lexington for the drive to Lawrenceburg. The tour is approximately 4-5 hours. Water and snacks are provided. Tours Are $50. Make reservations and get more information at http://www.stonefencestours.com/index.php/tours/bourbon-tours/bourbon-baron-ripy
