Whiskey Distilleries?
 
What distilleries are within the 30 minutes of the hotel?

Woodford Reserve and Buffalo Trace are both about that distance. Ditto Wild Turkey.

Strongly recommend Makers Mark, even if it's a bit outside your preferred range.

I may hit makers mark. Have to decide. I pass the exit for there all the time and say "one day I will stop in". I love me some makers mark :D

Might need to go check one of the local distilleries out if we can squeeze it in. On a bit of a tight schedule this year.

If anybody planned on going to makers mark I just found this, "
Quote:

Distillery production will shut down (still house only) from August 7th - September 7th for maintenance. Tours and bottling will not be affected. They will run as usual.
So with being said I think I will pass and check the local ones out. Anybody want to get a group together and make a trip?

Wild Turkey is within a 30 minute drive! Woohoo! Anybody else want to go?

I'd be interested in taking a drive to Buffalo Trace, which makes Blanton's.

I spent some time around the Toyota plant (Georgetown KY). and on weekends I'd go tour plants. Jim Beam is got a nice visitors center, but Makers is THE place you want to go.

Hate to do grammar police on you but the word whiskey does not sit well with us from Kentucky. In fact, we don't like, drink or produce whiskey. There's all kinds of whiskey. We make and drink bourbon. To those of us that know and understand the difference, its huge. I guess the proper analogy would be if someone thought your TDI was a Kia. You would take it personally and need to set them straight. In a respectful manner of course.

I am in for a Makers Mark tour. I may not have a car so if someone needs a rider companion, count me in. As a matter of fact I don't fly out until Tuesday evening. So I would love to go on another tour (at distillery by 11am) so that I can make my 5pm flight out. You can't go to Kentucky and not go on a distillery tour in my opinion. I went to Woodford Reserve this spring and now I want to add more to the list.

Sorry. Whisky, Whiskey, Bourbon, Shine its all good. I should have known better. But by technical standards it is a "whiskey". It's just called bourbon because of Bourbon County, where oddly no bourbon is made today. What makes bourbon, tennessee whiskey, rye whiskey, etc. is it's filtration, proof and so on. You i can tell know this though. :)
