Bourbon & Baseball Tour - $25

Take a guided tour through the factory where Louisville Slugger bats are crafted with the same pride that started in 1884. Watch the wood chips fly as you walk right through the heart of their production line where you'll encounter each step in the bat-making process. After the tour, everyone gets a FREE miniature Louisville Slugger bat! The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience features an atrisanal distillery where you will not only learn the process for making bourbon, but also see it being made right before your eyes. The tour also includes premium bourbon tastings.
