Cork & Barrel is a bourbon and fine wine store located at Bluegrass Airport (BGA) in Lexington, KY.
Our store is INSIDE the TSA controlled area. That means that once you clear the TSA security checkpoint at Bluegrass Airport you can select fine bourbons and wines – and carry them on the plane with you to any location in United States.
Because we’re located past the TSA checkpoint – we have basically cleared the “3 ounce rule” for you. You’re now free to select from our extensive collection of Kentucky bourbons and fine wines from around the world – and take them with you on your flight. No problem if you need to change planes at your connecting airport. As long as you remain within the TSA “bubble” you (and your bourbon!) can travel safely.
If you are inbound to Lexington – you can grab a bottle or two and head straight to your hotel, home or other destination. We’re conveniently located just a few steps from baggage claim. We also have a nice assortment of bourbon themed items such as chocolates, candies, snacks, ball caps and other wearables, bourbon infused cigars, cocktail bitters, shot glasses and barware, gift bags and special bourbon samplers that make great gifts.
Our fine wine section showcases some of the premier growing areas domestically: Napa, Sonoma, Oregon and Washington. If you like old-world wines we’ve got classic French, Italian, Spanish and other regions. We even keep several sparkling wines on hand – chilled and ready to go to your celebration.
When you’re traveling through Bluegrass Airport – either heading out for an adventure – or coming in for our hospitality – we hope you stop by and say “hi” while you look over our great bourbons. Cheers!
