Touring the Woodford Reserve Distillery

Oct 30, 2013

Also, while we were in Kentucky last weekend, we were able to tour the Woodford Reserve distillery.
Now, I'm not necessarily a bourbon connoisseur. 
Actually, I've never even tried it until last weekend.
The tour was excellent, and after hearing all about bourbon for an hour I felt like a seasoned professional.
We had a great tour guide, Larry, who had great jokes and told us the inside scoop (even though I would assume he tells most groups the inside scoop).
We learned that 95% of the world's bourbon is made in Kentucky.
That's really the only fact I remember.
Oh, and "bourbon is whiskey but whiskey isn't bourbon".
They had a strict "no shooting" rule.
I'm also ashamed to say that I've never actually "sipped" any liquor.
They did have some chocolate covered bourbon balls though, that made great chasers.

We can't wait to check out some more stops on the Bourbon Trail, with the boys in tow of course.
If you have any recommendations, send them our way!
