The Jim Beam distillery near Louisville. 98% of all Bourbon whiskey is made in Kentucky. Six distilleries; Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Makers Mark, Buffalo Trace, Wild Turkey and Four Roses are located an hour or so from Louisville. Seeing them all in one day is known as taking "The Bourbon Trail".

Bill,

I half expected a couple of fellows sitting by a woodpile (hickory of course) whittling some wood and commenting about the smoothness of the whiskey. That's how much Jack Daniels ads have poisoned my mind.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

I don't have that but how about Jim Beam's grandson Booker Noe and his dog?

Although I am not a connoisseur(had to look up the spelling on that one!) of the spirits, these are some fine photos. I especially like the second shot with the evening sun.

Thanks Cal, The sunlight breaking through the clouds was just gorgeous and everything turned to gold. I wanted to get around on the West side of the barns and take some shots but within a few brief minutes it was gone.

Uh, umm, why do the bottoms of the buildings look mold covered? Is this ivy? I can't make it out.

I've toured the Jim Beam one, very interesting! Thanks!

They are mold covered. The humidity at which the barrels are stored causes this. Apparently it's not a problem. They're like that all over the state.
