Hi- I'm thinking of surprising my husband with a bourbon trail trip in March. We will be traveling Fri-Sun or Sat-Mon (arriving early afternoon day 1, have all of day 2, and then leave around noon on day 3). It's about a 6 hour drive from Peoria to the area.
I know we want to do Makers Mark and Buffalo Trace because those are 2 of his favorites. I would like to fit in a winery (Equus Run & Capital Cellars have been mentioned) and the shoe outlet in Shepherdsville if we can. It appears that the only places open Sun are some wineries, 4 Roses and Jim Beam.
I don't know the area at all and I'm confused about how to maximize our time without a lot of back and forth. Where should we go first & what order makes sense? Where to spend the night?
Thanks so much for your help.
