I made my way to the Woodford Reserve today to take a tour of their distillery. I'm a fan of Bourbon so I was interested in seeing just how this whole thing works.
But, in addition to seeing the entire Bourbon making process, Woodford is also a historical tour as well. The distillery dates back 202 years making it a historical landmark. This was a nice added bonus for me.
After the tour I headed to the airport (where I am typing this entry) ready to head back to DC. With a little bit of luck we'll get in early so I can catch the season finale of Walking Dead.
Enjoy the pics.
