If you love bourbon and fancy a trip to the deep south at the end of 2019, why not head down to Kentucky to stay at the Jim Beam distillery in the town of Clermont for a night? It’s guaranteed to be one of the most unique experiences you’ll ever have, and probably one of the drunkest too. Need more convincing?
- It’s only $23 a night. While the distillery is only taking bookings for single night stays, it’ll only run you a little more than $20 to stay at the property. I think I speak for us all when I say that it’s a total bargain.
- The property is amazing. You’ll be staying in a gorgeous house from the early 20th century that boasts three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, fishing docks, and even cowboy-cauldron fires in the side yard. The house even overlooks the lovely Everbach Lake, so you’ll get a view too. Oh, and of course free WiFi plus a bar stacked with Jim Beam products. Whew!
- You don’t just get a place to lay your head. In addition to the impressive digs, each stay comes with a guided tour of the Jim Beam distillery, a bourbon tasting, and even a free BBQ dinner. You know if there’s one thing the south does well, it’s BBQ.
- You need to be 21 or older to stay there. That should go without saying, but anyone coming to stay at the property needs to be 21 since alcohol is on and around the premises. They can’t have kids getting drunk on bourbon now, can they?
- There are some great places to visit nearby too. If you’re coming to Kentucky from far away, chances are you’ll want to extend your stay beyond that first night at the Jim Beam distillery. While you’ll have to find addition accommodation on your own, there are plenty of delicious places to eat nearby like Fred’s Smokehouse, which serves some crazy BBQ inspired by Jim Beam family recipes.
- Reservations are extremely limited. Stays at the distillery are on a first-come, first-served basis and are only available through the end of 2019 for now via Airbnb. It’s unclear whether or not they’ll reopen reservations moving into 2020, but something tells me this would be a pretty sweet permanent fixture. If you’re quick, you might be able to snag a res HERE.
