A Taste of Kentucky is filled with Kentucky-themed gifts, souvenirs and Kentucky Derby items. It is a popular destination during  the holiday season, but the store also specializes in gift basket throughout the year. Baskets for anniversaries, birthdays, corporate gifts, weddings, and more. Often the baskets are filled with a selection of items, including Louisville Slugger souvenirs, Maker's Mark products and Modjeska caramels.

What Can I buy at A Taste of Kentucky?

A Taste of Kentucky is a great stop if you have Kentucky family living in another state, or if a friend came to visit and you are sending them a reminder of all the fun your group had during their visit. So, if you had friends in town to tour local distilleries, follow up their visit with glassware, bourbon infused sauces and marinades. ​

It's a cute little shop—all of the locations—and while there is tons of Kentucky Derby themed memorabilia, you will also find souvenir items that show off other things we all appreciate about Kentucky. Think tasty foods and drinks, apparel, snow globes, cookbooks, Derby hats and more
