The Butchertown Grocery Bakery in Louisville is the newest Official Sponsor of the world-famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail adventure, the Kentucky Distillers’ Association announced.
Located at 743 E Main Street, the BG Bakery is Butchertown’s first European-style bakery and proudly offers freshly made breads and pastries, salads, sandwiches, and more. It also features a retail wine & spirits shop with its own exclusive private barrel select bottles of Bourbon.
As an official sponsor, the BG Bakery receives prominent placement on the KBT website and marketing materials, including recommended itineraries, signage, and more. The bakery joins the Campbell House Hotel, Independent Stave Co., Marriott Louisville East, Mint Julep Experiences, Pegasus Distillery Experiences, Seelbach Hotel, and VisitLex as Barrel level sponsors.
The BG Bakery has been called the trendy neighborhood home since 2015 and is surrounded by fun offerings for tourists including the bustling Butchertown Market, the Lynn Family Stadium, the home field for the LouFC Soccer Team, and other popular eateries, shops, and watering holes.
There are eight KBT and Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour distilleries in Louisville including, Angel’s Envy, Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, Michter’s at Fort Nelson, Old Forester, Stitzel-Weller Distillery, Kentucky Peerless, and Copper & Kings Distillery.
BG Bakery Executive Pastry Chef Amanda Johnson said they are the state’s only bakery with a retail license to sell Bourbon by the bottle. “It’s our great pleasure to bring locally roasted coffee, artisanal breads, and pastries, organic wines, and barrel select Kentucky Bourbons to the neighborhood we love,” she said.
“We look forward to being a place for Bourbon visitors to relax and refuel between tours while having the opportunity to show them what the team can do. We are excited to be an Official Sponsor of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour.”
BG Bakery Principal owner John Moore said, “We are honored to receive the designation for the BG Bakery as an Official Sponsor of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour. This will enhance our presence in the Kentucky Bourbon Trail attraction in collaboration with our local distilleries and the Kentucky Distillers’ Association.”
“We are so proud of what we’ve built and we’re excited to share it with the world,” BG Bakery investor Chad Welch said. “We are proud to be an Official Sponsor of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® experience.”
