Bourbon Experience - Memphis to Louisville

Memphis to Louisville aboard American Queen. 1 night hotel stay pre-cruise in Memphis.

INSIDE THE BOURBON EXPERIENCE – Learn what makes a centuries-old tradition uniquely American with this rare opportunity to experience an extraordinary journey through America’s heartland and into the roots of Kentucky’s bourbon region.

This special themed voyage will take you behind the scenes and into the history books to show you where bourbon comes from, how it is made and the ways to distinguish the unique characteristics of different distilleries.

Not only have we arranged for special tastings, treats, and cooking demonstrations, but also we are thrilled to have an exclusive line-up of special onboard guest lecturers. Both onboard and ashore, each day presents an eclectic blend of music, creative workshops and a wealth of enrichment that can’t be found anywhere else. This dynamic blend of historic discovery, toe-tapping entertainment and complimentary tours of the finest bourbon distilleries creates a uniquely American river cruise that you simply cannot afford to miss!
