While not an official stop on the trail, this small distillery offered a unique opportunity to actually talk with the owner/master distiller and taste Bourbon straight from the barrel. High end Bourbon only sold on site.

We did the barrel tasting at the barn. The bourbon was so good that we left with a barrel strength bottle pulled straight from one of the barrels we sampled. The owner was a hoot!

This is a relatively new distillery on a farm. Staff was very helpful, and offer a tasting for a small fee. The spirits are good, but not as good as some others. The prices, I thought, were very high. It’s an interesting place to visit.

Ross spent time with us for education about bourbon, how his is the same and how he uses a different approach. It is off the path but well worth the time. We had tastings directly from the barrels and had a no pressure opportunity to...More
