Kentucky Bourbon Trail, May to December 2012

We enjoyed traveling to the different bourbon distilleries in Kentucky on our way to Minnesota and while we were in Kentucky working for Amazon. Our first stop was Bardstown in May where we visited Heaven Hill. We should have stopped at Jim Beam as it was next on the trail north, but for some reason we just did not stop. Bardstown was a great little town to visit and I would have liked to go again just to walk around the town. We did not finish the trail until we were on our way back to Kentucky where we stopped at Woodford Reserve in Versailles. Drove this small winding road towing the trailer - Jim was not happy about that and did not enjoy it at all. To top it off, there was no parking for RV's and we had to maneuver our way into a parking lot, only to miss the last tour of the day.

We visited the rest of the distilleries while we were working at Amazon, going to Maker's Mark in Loretto on November 18; Wild Turkey in Lawrenceburg on December 2; Four Roses in Lawrenceburg on December 12; and finally Jim Beam in Clermont on December 22, the day before we were scheduled to leave Campbellsville.

Took us a while to visit all of the distilleries in the Bourbon Trail, but we finally completed all of them between May and December 2012. We got our passports stamped at all of them and I just mailed them in to the Bourbon Society and are now awaiting delivery of our T-shirts.
