As the oldest operating Mississippi River-style steamboat in the world, the Belle of Louisville is now incorporating more Kentucky history into her special event schedule by offering an upscale Bourbon Cruise. The cruise is scheduled for Saturday, August 18, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Boarding begins at 7:30PM.
The Belle and bourbon are a natural match-up. Kentucky is known as the birthplace of bourbon, and steamboats began the commerce of bourbon as they carried many a barrel to river ports up and down the inland waterways.
The event will feature four different types of bourbon courtesy of Four Roses Distillery and a live jazz trio for entertainment. Tickets are $45, which includes taxes and gratuities. They can be purchased online at www.BelleofLouisville.com. For more information about this and other cruises, call (502)-574-2992, or toll-free at (866)-832-0011.
