Over the years, we have been proud to introduce hundreds of guests to the bourbon experiences available in Northern Kentucky and throughout the state. Please browse our answers to the questions we hear most often. If you have additional questions, please ask us in the contact form at the bottom of the page. We look forward to creating a customized tour just for you!
What is the B-Line?
The B-Line is a curated collection of Northern Kentucky’s best bourbon purveyors and craft distilleries. Our tours center around the craft distilleries in the northern part of Bourbon Country: New Riff Distilling, Second Sight Spirits, Boone County Distilling Co., Neeley Family Distillery, and Old Pogue Distillery.
What do you recommend for distillery tours and tastings?
Beginning in Northern Kentucky, we provide destination experiences along three “B-Line Trails.” Each of these trails provide a tour & tasting experience at three destinations.
- The B-Line Trail North. Boone County Distilling Co, Second Sight Spirits, and New Riff Distilling.
- The B-Line Trail Southbound. Boone County Distilling, Neeley Family Distillery, and the Kentucky Artisan Distillery or Three Boys Farm.
- The B-Line Trail to Maysville and Augusta. The Old Pogue Experience at the Kentucky Gateway Museum, Old Pogue Distilling, and Baker-Bird Winery and B-Bird Distillery.
Do you provide destination experiences to other distilleries?
Most of our trail packages are to “craft distilleries” beginning in Northern Kentucky. We can also curate a day for your group to the larger distilleries such as Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, and Wild Turkey, or YOU can plan and book your day and allow us to provide you the transportation for the day. Just tell us where and when to pick up you up, where and when for each of your planned stops, and where and when we are returning you to your drop off location.
What size tour groups can you accommodate?
Our passenger transit vans seat 14 people, but we have found that tour groups of 8-12 people are the optimal size. We can also provide private experiences for smaller groups.
What days of the week do you offer trail experiences?
We offer our B-Line Trails Wednesday through Sunday, and other related services most any day of the week. All bookings are based on availabilities.
How are you handling tours during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Please visit our COVID-19 updates page for our most recent changes and important information.
How long is a day of tours and tastings and how much does a B-Line trail experience cost?
Trail experiences are 6-8 hours . Based on a group size of 12 people, the cost per person will average about $99-$159 with some trails being more enhanced, and others having shorter routes. We will provide a quote upon your request.
What is included in your trail experiences?
Our trail packages include your transportation for the day and all tours and tastings. Your knowledgeable guide will pick up you and your groups at a designated location, such as a hotel, Airbnb or residence. At the end of the day, we will safely return you to your starting point.

You are permitted to bring snacks/food and beverages. We provide bottled water, ice, and a cooler. Box lunches can be arranged. Open containers are not permitted during the tours.
