Being on the other side of the world to Kentucky, I've become a fan of watching bourbon documentaries and distillery promo dvd's. They are often informative, and always let me see glimpses of my favourite US State :cool: So far, I've managed to find:

Documentaries:
Made and Bottled in Kentucky
How the Best Was Done

TV Shows:
Three Sheets - Kentucky
Thirsty Traveler - Kentucky Bourbon

Distillery Promos:
Heaven Hill - A Portrait of Heaven Hill & A Day in the Life of Parker Beam
Buffalo Trace - Discover the Spirit of Legends
Four Roses - The Making of a Unique American Spirit
Makers Mark - Your Bourbon is Ready, Are You?
Makers Mark - Boom - Marketing Video Message

So, what other documentaries and promos are out there on dvd?

This is about Whiskey in general but it's very good it's A&E's Modern Marvels Whiskey they do Jim Bean, Jack Daniels, Jamerson's, I don't remmeber which scotch distillery. It does do a good job explaining the differences between the different whisk(e)ys and stills as I remmember. I watch it every time they show it.

As cheap as it is to replicate DVDs, there is no excuse for going out of stock.

These aren't DVD's but you can stream them for free while drinking your bourbon. They are from the KY public television channel KET. Maybe not as high quality as Chuck's DVD (which I still haven't seen), but still mildly entertaining.

I came across a beautiful 14 minute video on Booker Noe. It looks like it used to be the video you viewed when visiting Beam at Clermont.

What a great video. My fondest wish was to be able to meet Booker down in Kentucky. Unfortunately that never happened. I think I would have hit it off with him real good right off the bat. A great man and a great bourbon ambasador.
I sure miss him.
