Bulleit Visitor Center Blends Tasting Experience with Tech Innovation

By August 1, 2019Top News

The Bulleit Distilling Co. in Shelbyville, Kentucky, opened its new Visitor Experience center aimed at creating “a sensory-rich tasting experience brought to life.” The experience becomes the official 17th stop on The Kentucky Bourbon Trail®. The venue includes partnerships for sustainable operations: the nonprofit Oceanic Global ensures the tasting experience aligns with The Oceanic Standard (TOS) certification program to adopt sustainable practices and eliminating single-use plastics; an organic cocktail garden developed in partnership with The University of Kentucky provides ingredients and garnishes for the on-site cocktail bar; and with the Kentucky Propane Education & Resource Council, in its commitment to using propane to power Visitor Experience buses. Bulleit and Diageo announced the commitment to sourcing 100% renewable electricity by 2030, with the property hosting the first industrial solar array in Shelby County.
