Tourists in bourbon country may soon be able to slake their thirst on site. The Kentucky Senate passed an alcohol bill that will allow distilleries in wet territories to offer cocktails to visitors. Previously, they had only been allowed to offer samples to the nearly 900,000 visitors to Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail last year.
The measure also increases the sample size offered to visitors from 1 ounce to 1.75 ounces, and the amount of spirits a customer can purchase from 3 liters to 4.5 liters. The bill now heads to the desk of Governor Matt Bevin for his signature.
