Maria Brittis says
What a handsome gift, I’m not a big drinker, but this would be nice as part of the bar selection.
Thanks, Maria. I love my wine, but bourbon isn’t my thing either. So many people are getting into it, though.
Dave McGarry says
That’s extremely unreal that any Distillery would ever let anyone take a video of their distillery and then sell it.. AMAZING!
Also, you have no allergen warnings on your food items. i.e. Nut.
Dave, You are the sweetest thing to stop by with your thoughtful comments. However, we don’t have any videos of a distillery on our site, so we’re not sure what you’re referring to there. Also, we don’t have any “food items”. Ours is a recipe site, and all ingredients are clearly stated in the ingredients list.
The Kentucky Bourbon Experience.
I am a Bourbon collector and our Charity holds Bourbon Events all over the USA including Georgia. I know a lot of the Distilleries and thars why there is the Bourbon Trail in Ky.
I guess your linked to a Bourbon/liquor outlet. As for the nuts my wife and many more have nut allergies.
I like your site and response. I was just a little confused. Thanks for your clairification.
Just to clarify for other readers:
The Kentucky Bourbon Experience: A Visual Tour of Kentucky’s Bourbon Distilleries is a book of beautiful photography (not a video). It celebrates the Distilleries of Kentucky for those unable to experience the Bourbon Trail in person, and would make a great gift to commemorate an actual tour.
