Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, the world's No. 1 selling super-premium bourbon, invites travelers to grab a seat and a glass of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey at the new Knob Creek Bourbon Lounge in the main concourse of the Lexington Bluegrass Airport. The Knob Creek Bourbon Lounge celebrates the brand's "Drink Life Deeply" platform, providing travelers with a relaxing retreat to enjoy cocktails or strike up a conversation with a friendly bartender or like-minded traveler. The new venue is part of a larger airport renovation offering travelers an authentic Kentucky experience and hand-crafted Kentucky bourbons.

"The new Knob Creek Bourbon Lounge allows bourbon aficionados to take their time to explore life deeper and enjoy the rich flavor of Knob Creek while they escape from the stress of travel," said Paige Guzman, brand manager, Knob Creek. "The Bluegrass Airport renovation celebrates the best of Kentucky, and Knob Creek is excited to lend its rich heritage to this destination."

The Knob Creek Bourbon Lounge menu will feature signature Knob Creek Bourbon cocktails along with a selection of alcoholic, non-alcoholic beverages and menu options. The 836-square foot fully-branded bar officially opened on March 21, 2008.
