Zip, Sip and Dip is a new event by Mint Julep Tours featuring a partnership between Louisville's Mega Cavern and Maker's Mark Distillery. This event provides a zip lining adventure with a tour of the Marker's Mark Distillery complete with a bourbon tasting and a personal bottle dipping in the signature red wax.
Louisville Mega Cavern currently offers the world's only underground zip lining adventure. Trey Moreau of Louisville Mega Cavern said, "This tour will not only be an exhilarating experience for those participating, but will also explain why Limestone plays such an important role in Kentucky's Bourbon industry."
Charlotte Browning of Mint Julep Tours discussed the partnership between Mega Cavern and Maker's Mark. "...the cavern’s limestone wall plays into the history of bourbon and Kentucky. They work with thrill seekers and we entertain bourbon drinkers, so there is bound to be an overlap in interests among our audiences and we believe this tour will satisfy both."
This event will be available year-round through Mint Julep Tours. Mint Julep Tours is a Louisville-based tour, transportation and event planning company. Tours include: The City of Louisville, Private Horse Farms, Bourbon Distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® and special customized corporate outings and events.
