Forgive me faithful followers, but I was out galavanting around Kentucky yesterday at a bourbon distillery. As part of the media tour for the Bourbon Classic, I got to cozy up to the Buffalo Trace Distillery and watch how they make and bottle bourbon.
I saw the inner workings of Warehouse X, where master distiller Harlen Wheatley experiments with temperature and light control on aging barrels of bourbon. It’s a pretty cool $1 million facility. Also got to see the single-barrel operation of packaging Elmer T. Lee and Blanton’s. I wanted to take those cute hard-t0-find bottles home with me.
