If you love to drink whiskey and bourbon but do not know the difference between, you should come to this place. I went there when I was on vacation during Thanksgiving, there are not much to do in Kentucky, some caves, zip lining etc.. But there is one thing you MUST do is to take a tour of historical Bourbon Trail which includes world wide known distilleries like Jim Beam or Wild Turkey at the same time other distilleries like Woodford. The actual tour is about couple days and there are few companies which arrange those tours, however you can also get on the car and drive on the route, visit the distilleries. I actually knew about Jim Beam and Wild Turkey however I have never heard of Woodford before (my mistake!) I did not have much time so I have decided to visit only Woodford Distillery after I was served a glass of Woodford Reserve by one of the friends at my friend's house. I am glad that I did, Woddford Distillery is amazingly beautiful, it is in Versailles KY, the information on tours could be found on their website, the one I took was about an hour, I have learned a little bit of the difference between whiskey and bourbon. During the tour we have met Duncan who is the actual disteller now, he does all the distillation, we were informed of the distillation process, we have also met few foxes who are actually bottling the Woodford, Edward is the guy who opens those oak barrels and let the delicious bourbon out, the smell of sour mash, oak barrels, the bourbon was amazing, after the tour you can taste their delicious Woodford reserve and bourbon chocolate, there is also a gift shop where you can buy up to three bottles of bourbon, chocolate, bourbon based sauces, sweets, cocktail mixers, t-shirts, hats etc. You can also meet the Bourbon Bill who knows everything about the bourbon and whiskey, I have a picture of him with me!! Finally I recommend you to taste their Double Oak bourbon it is absolutely delicious!!!!
