What did I find interesting?

January 22, 2015


I thought this little video about how a Jack Daniels whiskey barrel is made was interesting. I was surprised at the amount of hand work involved while producing barrels on an industrial scale.

Here are some photos that feature a product associated with barrels.  They are from a trip I took on the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky . . .

It was an interesting tour.  I would go back to Buffalo Trace and some of the distillers that I missed the first time.
