Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky


















All it takes is corn, rye, malted barley, water from the limestone hills, and years and years in charred oak barrels. While it loses an angels' share in the process of aging, it becomes something miraculous. Bourbon.

We visited Maker's Mark distillery a few years ago, down the road a couple of hours from Woodford. I can still remember all the aromas! The smell in the barrel aging house was quite intoxicating.

PI: You should go there. It's amazing.

Villager: You're correct--the smell is one of the best smells I've ever experienced. I didn't want to leave the room. The best part of bourbon-drinking from here on out will be the way it makes me relive that scent.
