Shelbyville Kentucky is famous as an equestrian stronghold, home to over 80 saddle-horse farms, and is often referred to as the American Saddlebred Capital of the World. However, you need not be a horse enthusiast to visit this delightful small town in Bluegrass Country, which has a lot to offer visitors. The town is close to Kentucky’s famous Bourbon Trail and you can visit two distilleries without leaving town. You can spend a lovely outdoor day enjoying a wine tasting at Talon Winery or a country day at Mulberry Orchards. If you enjoy antiques and fine architecture a visit to the Wakefield-Scearce Galleries is in order, and no one should leave without experiencing genuine southern hospitality at the Claudia Sanders Dinner House. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

A day trip to Mulberry Orchard is a wonderful way to enjoy great country scenery and stock up with farm-fresh produce. The family-owned orchards produce 17 varieties of peaches and 16 varieties of apples during the summer season. To enjoy them straight off the trees you should try and visit between June and October. Children will love the chance to meet the farm animals, see where their food comes from and let off steam in the kids play area or go on a hay ride. You can order a light lunch, snack or treat from the Mulberry Kitchen and take home a feast of locally produced meats, honey, vegetables, preserves, berries and cider.

Distilling fine Kentucky bourbon according to a treasured family recipe which dates back to 1830, Thomas E. Bulleit Jr. opened the Bulleit Distilling Company in 1987. At the heart of the company and its famous product is the secret recipe which used an unusually high rye content to produce a bold and spicy bourbon with loads of character and a smooth finish. To add another dimension, the bourbon is aged in charred American oak barrels. You can learn all about the distilling process and enjoy an interactive tasting and guided tour when you visit the Shelbyville distillery to join the 1-hour Frontier Whiskey Experience.

Claudia Sanders was the wife of Colonel Harland Sanders (of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame). In 1968 she and her husband opened the original Claudia Sanders Dinner House, where genuine Kentucky hospitality and old-fashioned southern food was the name of the game. Although the original restaurant building was destroyed in a fire in 1999, the essence of Claudia and the Colonel live on in the new premises and you can look forward to enjoying the kind of country-style meal your grandmother would have been proud to serve. The menu features a brilliant Fried Chicken but many other southern favorites like Sugar Cured Ham and Fried Green Tomatoes are popular options.
