Tomorrow, to kick off our Great American Cross-Country Bar Crawl, Maggi and I will be making two stops on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail is a tourism and marketing venture by six Kentucky distillers to promote their craft, their product, and their state. The distillers are Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, and Heaven Hill. Each operates extensive and interesting visitor facilities. The locations on the trail are all located in a rough line between Lexington and Fort Knox along the Bluegrass Parkway.
You could not possibly do the entire trail in less than three days, not if you want to get out of the car and actually learn anything.
The PeguWife and I have only one, given our over all travel schedule for the rest of the bar crawl. Thus I have selected two stops for this time round. Check back here soon for reviews of the visitor experience at Maker’s Mark, and an in-depth discussion of the operation at Four Roses!
If you don’t see at least one post by Wednesday, send help. If there is a bright center of the universe, Maker’s Mark is located in the holler that it is furthest from. I’m likely to get lost….
