Our second and last stop, at least for this adventure, took us to Wild Turkey. When we arrived, we found Master Distiller, Jimmy Russell, busy signing bottles. So Chris bought a bottle, had it personalized, and then had it signed.

So our tour of Wild Turkey began shortly after the bottle-signing. Our tour guide was Jimmy's granddaughter, and that family pride impressed me the most about this tour. She is clearly very proud of her Wild Turkey heritage. Well. And the limestone. And Kentucky Basketball. And yes, although it's not pictured, there was a tasting at the end of this one, too!
One of the tasting areas. Too classy for us. Old Joe Wild Turkey Silos Ask Chris If you really focus, you can get the Angel's Share. Go on. You know you want to try. Yes. I was actually there.

We had a little time in Frankfort.
Capitol Building. Worth the wait to get the flag just right. Lamppost. Yeah. I have a thing about lampposts. Yes. It is one word. :) Always fun to take photo of the photographer. . .
Haven't been on the Bourbon Trail yet? Give it a whirl. It's pretty interesting.
