We have 24 CSC Bourbonites headed to Louisville, KY September 7-9, 2018. The available spots on this trip filled in four (4) days; I do have a waiting list. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please let me know.
Besides the distilleries we will be visiting (Bulleit , Angels Envy, Kentucky Peerless, & Jim Beam, I am trying to contact Rabit Hole), below are other interesting facts and places to see in Louisville, KY.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Whether you take it neat, with a splash, on the rocks or in cocktail, bourbon aficionados know there's no place like Louisville, Ky., to wet your whistle.
We are headed to that gracious, Southern city on the Ohio River, we have our passports. The recently expanded Urban Bourbon Trail has 27 bars and restaurants, mostly downtown, but trailblazers can "pick six," getting a passport stamp at each establishment to become Official Bourbon Country Citizens.
Citizenship entitles imbibers to many rights and privileges. OK, not really. They just get a T-shirt and a certificate, but after reaching a state of bourbon-induced bliss, nobody cares.
So, what exactly is bourbon? Here's a little tutorial for the uninitiated.
All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. Bourbon is American-made whiskey that must be distilled from a mash that is 51 percent corn and aged in charred, new white oak barrels for a minimum of two years, imbuing it with that lovely golden-brown color. Other whiskey can age in re-used barrels
Louisville is more than just a world class city brimming with art, culture, food, bourbon, and the friendliest people you’ll meet anywhere. It’s a big city with a small town feel, as the locals like to say. Fall is one of the best times to visit Louisville. It’s not just the crisp autumn air and crunchy colorful leaves that brings me back year after year, but also the unique festivals and events, bourbon tasting, museum touring, and a theatre scene that rivals New York City. Here’s a list of things to do in Louisville during the fall!
- Frazier History Museum.
- Attraction Slideshow: Museums in Louisville.
- Kentucky Derby Museum. ...
