Bill to allow distilleries to sell their own products by the drink advances


A bill advanced by the House Licensing and Occupations Committee on Wednesday would allow distilleries to sell their own products by the drink on their premises. Visitors could sip a small batch bourbon or a bourbon cocktail after tours or at special events at the distilleries.


Bourbon tourism has become a big business in Kentucky. Tourists made nearly 725,000 visits to distilleries along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour last year.
