  • Searsman changed the title to More about Somerset, ky. BOURBON

Most people have know of Ky for fast horses. Some declare Ky the Horse Capital of the World. If that is first in this state , then Ky Bourbon is a very close second.. and Somerset is part of that notoriety..

 Did you know , 95% of the worlds Bourbon is distilled In Ky? Also, that approximately 85 % of hops and grain , corn for Bourbon are Grown in Ky as well. 
 

All BOURBON is Whiskey, But not all Whiskey is Bourbon!!

Cheers indeed. Everyone knows about bourbon's Kentucky heritage. For me a trip to KY is like going to the Holy Land. Not to worry, nobody will be required to wash their feet. (I will, but it won't be required) 

 

Oh, and I made my reservations a long time ago.
