Kentucky is the land of thoroughbreds and bourbon.
Spirit and wine enthusiasts can travel the Bourbon Trail. This is the only bourbon trail in the world. There is a multi-century history of Bourbon in Kentucky. Eight distilleries are members of the Bourbon Trail. Visitors can learn the story of bourbon, its history and the process of making it. It is interesting to note the differences between producing wine and bourbon. For instance winemakers often use oak barrels that are toasted. Think of bread that you can toast in the toaster. Distillers use oak barrels that are charred. Think of over toasting a slice of bread to where it is black. There are many similiarities and differences between bourbon and wine production.
