Yesterday we went to 3 distilleries. Our first stop was Makers Mark where we took a tour of the facility.
We got to taste the bourbon mash in it’s various stages. It looks like it’s boiling, but it’s just the yeast fermenting (it didn’t taste very good). I also thought it was kind of gross that they let people put their fingers in a product that was eventually bottled and sold.
When we returned to the car, we noticed a bird yelling at us. It turned out we were standing a little too close to her babies.
After a quick stop at home for lunch, we went to Four Roses where complimentary glasses came with the tasting fee and the bourbon was just ok.
Our favorite stop of the day was Willett Distilery. Perhaps we were less discerning by that point, but we really liked their Pot Still Reserve.
