Bourbon Tour 2017


7th Annual Bourbon Tour
October 7-8, 2017

The Wright State Alumni Association invites all alumni, family, and friends to join us on one of our most highly anticipated events- Bourbon Tour. This tour has sold out for the past several years, so don't wait to register! 

This trip provides attendees with the opportunity to network with fellow alumni and friends while enjoying some of Kentucky's most famous distilleries along with some that are newer to the scene. The Alumni Association strives to make sure each Bourbon Tour is unique and provides an experience that has past attendees coming back year after year.


This year's Bourbon Tour will include stops at the following distilleries:



Special Chihuly at Maker's Mark Glass Exhibit

Our visit to Maker's Mark Distillery this year will mean more than a fun, informative and up-close look into the world of their famous bourbon. This year, we will also enjoy the amazing art of world-renowned artist, Dale Chihuly with a limited-run special exhibition throughout the distillery grounds. This exhibition showcases seven dramatic installations complementing the distillery's landscape and architecture.
