Every year Kish and her high school friends take a trip together. This year they decided to hit the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky. Today the merry band visited the Woodford Reserve Distillery, where Kish snapped a few photos and sent them along.
Interesting, isn’t it, how alcoholic drinks seem to wax and wane in popularity? One year everybody’s drinking scotch, another year it’s vodka, and once in a while it’s tequila. Bourbon seems to be a hot choice right now, with lots of artisanal bourbons being aged in special barrels and people sipping high-end bourbon on the rocks. Bourbon is not really to my taste — I’m more of a wine and beer guy — but the distilling process is interesting, and ancient, and I can think of worse ways to use wood than building fine barrels.
