    Enjoy some chocolate with that Woodford Reserve!

    And I might recommend calling ahead at more popular ones and reserve a tour time. If you’re there a day they’re busy, you may have to wait for a tour. Finally, January is a slower time of the year and there be limited tour times. Again, calling ahead can confirm each situation. Enjoy.

    Totally! The new tasting room is the bomb. If you are coming from Louisville, you will be passing Loretto, home of Makers. It's a bit too "professional", but the setting is spectacular.

    Buffalo Trace was phenomenal. I liked it 1000% more than Woodford Reserve.

    I just wanted to point out that having a city pronounced VER-SALES is just the most Kentucky thing ever. Here in Wichita, we have the Ar-KANSAS River, and I live a mile from a street spelled Greenwich and pronounced GREEN-WHICH.

    Back on topic, I'm from Louisville and have never set foot in any of the Kentucky distilleries (never actually lived in Louisville after turning 21). I really need to rectify that soon.

    We have a similar pronounced Versailles that's located in Western Ohio. These are the same people that have alternate pronounciations for Russia and Houston nearby as well.

    Also see Rio Grande ("Rye-O") in Gallia County in SE Ohio.

    You should be ashamed.
