My Old Kentucky [Bourbon] Home

BREAKING NEWS! In my quest to visit all 50 states before I turn 50,Β I hit my 20th state a few weeks ago: Kentucky. I know what you’re thinking…why on earth would you choose to go to Kentucky for a weekend in the middle of August? To explore the bourbon trail, of course! (Isn’t that everyone’s answer to that question?)

Spontaneous travel plans are often some of the best, and this was no exception. Two of my Rhode Island theater pals and I spent the weekend gallivanting across the state, touring distilleries along the bourbon trail as we went, hitting up Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Four Roses, Maker’s Mark, Heaven Hill, and Jim Beam. Between hearing about angel share, white dog, and the distilling and aging process from all these different companies (PS: did you know that there are currently more barrels of bourbon aging in Kentucky than there are people? TRUE), it was quite the learning (and tasting) experience. And boy did we taste a lot of bourbon! Twas a bourbon-soaked weekend, indeed. I was on photo documenting and that’s what she said duty. Here are some of the highlights:
