Bourbon & Bluegrass – The Times
Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail is featured in yesterday’s Times Travel section. I want to take the trip someday; I’ve joked that when a friend gets married we’ll take a trip like this a la Sideways.
There was a dispiriting revelation in the article though:
WE were primed for a sampling of the goods. Fortunately, most distilleries on the trail offer tastings. Unfortunately, the local blue laws dictate that quantities remain barely enough to wet one’s lips: I was handed a shot glass in the Woodford visitor’s center that contained a mere half-ounce of bourbon. No refills.
I suppose that makes it easier and safer to drive from distillery to distillery.
