When cold weather moved in on Saturday morning, it didn’t spoil the rally at all; it just gave us a good reason to check out the little Denny’s Diner down the road.
With a good breakfast serving as fuel for the day, several of us set off on the famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Why is Kentucky the home of so many bourbon companies? It is the limestone rock that filters the water and lowers the PH -- just perfect for Bourbon! For more than 200 years Kentucky's legendary distilleries have crafted the world's finest Bourbons and Whiskey, using secret recipes passed down from generation to generation. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail features six signature distilleries nestled among the most beautiful scenery the Bluegrass has to offer: Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker's Mark, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve. With time a consideration we chose Maker's Mark for a tour.
Of course, the highlight of any tour is when it is over, and you end up in the tasting room! Cheers!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
