It could serve as more 'proof' that the Bluegrass isn't just for derby fans.

More and more tourists are reportedly coming to Kentucky for booze.

The Kentucky Distillers' Association says tourism has increased by at least 10%.

There are 6 distilleries along Kentucky's "Bourbon Trail".

They reportedly saw more than 450,000 visitors last year.

And it's not just whiskey that's pouring profits.

Travel experts say brewery tours, especially for craft beers, are growing too.
