Head just west of Covington to Second Sight Spirits distillery and lounge for a unique encounter in Ludlow, Kentucky. A stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour, this bourbon and rum distillery began when two friends, who left Kentucky to work in set design for Cirque du Soleil, came back and opened a one-of-a-kind artisan distillery. Their hand-built, swami-shaped still and stories from the circus and their fortune-telling goldfish will make for a memorable tour that ends with tasting their Oak Eye Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, rums, and hazelnut liqueur. To the east of Covington in Newport, and also a stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour, New Riff Distilling is independently owned by one family, and their care for the craft and quality is evident in the tours and tastings of their bourbon, rye, and gin.
