Boozinâ€™, Cruisinâ€™ and RVing on Distillery Trails in the USA
Distillery trails are in every U.S. state.
Small batch craft spirits are more popular than ever. In the U.S., about 1500 small distilleries are scattered from east to west, with more launching every year. Made with love by licensed mom and pop proprietors, these distilleries can call themselves “small batch” producers because they make under 750,000 proof gallons each year. They also arenâ€™t owned or controlled by a large supplier.
An industry report called The 2017 Craft Spirits Data Project notes that the popularity of small batch whiskey, vodka, gin and other spirits is quickly catching up with craft beer sales in America.
RVing on distillery trails like Kentuckyâ€™s Bourbon Trail is a neat experience, but you wonâ€™t find much variety when it comes to the types of spirits being produced.
