Kentucky Bourbon Trail: Wild Turkey

July 31, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

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!

We had a little time in Frankfort.

Haven't been on the Bourbon Trail yet? Give it a whirl. It's pretty interesting.
