The city has horse statues everywhere
and lots of fountains,
I only captured a few.Yesterday we took a guided city tour on a trolley bus, it was very informative, the best part was the sights of all those beautiful old Victorian mansions, more here than in any other city in the USA.
The first few rooms detailed those early days with a movie depiction of the events.
This room contained Evan Williams original still.
Here we were shown the entire process of the making of Bourbon.
Above the mash is bubbling away as the yeast ferments the mixture.
We were invited to smell the liquor in this barrel, aged to date about seven years.
The following pics show a recreation of Whisky Row as it looked back "in the day".
I purchased this for youngest DS who is a bit of a Bourbon connoisseur, do you think he might spare a nip for me?!
Next a newer development called "Larceny", a combination of premium barrels, more butterscotch but I missed the caramel and vanilla, and it did not appeal to my taste buds as much.And finally Evan Williams Black Label a less expensive one meant to be used for mixed drinks. A Bourbon ball finished off the tasting room experience then on to the shopping bit!
I almost forgot something for me, Bourbon balls and Bourbon Pecan Brittle, yummy!
