Jim Beam is located south of Louisville on 25 acres and is very picturesque and well organized for people to tour the facilities.  The Bourbon Chase, a 2 day 200 mile relay race along the bourbon trail started from Jim Beam’s this day, making our visit very festive with loads of people and music.  We took a great tour/tasting, had a BBQ sandwich for lunch and a delicious bourbon ice cream sundae for dessert.  A very enjoyable day.  Well worth the visit.

Wild Turkey is located in Lawrenceburg about 20 minutes west of Lexington.  We had a great tour of the distillery, barrel aging facilities and tasting.  My favorite was the American Honey Sting a liquor with honey and an infusion of pepper – that’s the sting – very tasty.
