Inside some of the distilleries that produce America’s Official Native Spirit.
By Hope S. Philbrick
I can, do and will write a lot of words about bourbon and Kentucky Bourbon Country, but there are some elusive aspects of the experience of touring the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and new Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour that can never be captured in print.
As soon as I figure out how to add a scratch-n-sniff widget to this website, I’ll do it. Until then, you’ll have to imagine the musty/sugary/oaky smell of bourbon aging in a rickhouse.
For now, we’ll have to be contented with these images that capture some of what you can see on a distillery tour.
Bourbon is made of a mixture of grains, 51-percent of which must be corn. Other common ingredients are rye and malted barley.
