Old Fashioned Fortnight


As the official cocktail of the city of Louisville, the Old Fashioned has a special place in the heart of Bourbon City. Every year during the first two weeks of June, Old Fashioned Fortnight shines the spotlight on this spirited bourbon concoction.

After a day of exploring Louisville’s great distilleries, it’s time to put your new knowledge to the test on the Urban Bourbon Trail®. This collection of bars and restaurants have a significant knowledge of Bourbon and are eager to share their favorite cocktails and Bourbon infused food dishes with you. Six visits along the UBT will earn you the coveted Urban Bourbon Trail t-shirt. And since you may work up a sweat on the trail this June, all UBT finishers during Old Fashioned Fortnight will receive a bonus “I’d Rather Be Drinking Bourbon” water bottle, only redeemable at the Louisville Visitor Center.

During Old Fashioned Fortnight, visit one of these 40+ establishments, all who prepare their own Old Fashioned, many with their own unique twist. Be sure to take a photo while you’re at it and post it for a chance to win tickets to Bourbon & Beyond.
