Downtown Thrifts & Gifts
If there is one thing Georgetown isn’t running short on, it's fantastic places to shop for any occasion. Swing by the historic streets of downtown Gtown and you’ll be greeted by store fronts jam-packed with quality gifts, antiques and artistry! From personalized Gtown gear to gag gifts, All That And More (Now a licensed dealer of Buffalo Trace Distillery products) has...well, all that and more. Find that bottle of bourbon he’s always been wanting at Maime’s Fine Wine and Gifts or treat him to a blast from the past with the perfect piece from the award winning Georgetown Antique Mall. Just a short walk from there, you’ll find one of the only authentic stained glass shops in Kentucky, Heirloom’s and Gretchens, where unique KY artistry is sure to catch the eye as much as it catches the sun.

There are so many unique gifts to find in our local shops downtown, but sometimes the best celebrations are all about the experiences you have along the way. One visit to Bourbon 30 will have you walking out the door with the perfect bourbon gift and a pack full of memories to boot.
Bourbon distiller Jeff Mattingly appreciates being mere steps from where bourbon whiskey was (allegedly) first made way back in 1789 – that is, on the banks of Royal Spring, located right across the street from Bourbon 30 in what is now known as Royal Spring Park. A visit to Bourbon 30 is as unique as an individual’s palate. The distillery offers an experience not found at other such venues and visitors don’t have to be a part of a group or a retailer to do a barrel pick or blend. Mattingly’s vision was to give Bourbon 30 guests the opportunity to spend time with the crafter in blending their own custom bottle, to try uncut, unfiltered bourbons and whiskey straight from the barrel.
