Top 75 Bourbon Bars in America

Bourbon industry publication, The Bourbon Review, has once again partnered with us to compile a list of America’s 75 Best Bourbon Bars as part of the magazine’s seventh anniversary issue.


During National Bourbon Heritage Month, the nationwide “toast” will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 30, when The Bourbon Review and Four Roses Bourbon will encourage fans to take part in the “toast” by tagging their favorite bourbon bar from the list using the hashtag #75Toast.
