For those who want to drink in more than just the local color, there is a shot of bourbon whiskey, Kentucky's signature spirit. More than 50 varieties of local bourbon are available at the bars and restaurants on Louisville's Urban Bourbon Trail. A free app for iPhone or Android can lead visitors to the best spots, where bourbon is priced anywhere from $5 to $25 or even more per glass.
