The Bourbon Trail brochure. It was too long to fit into the bed of my scanner, but here is most of it. I thought the map (next reply) would come in handy for the one's coming to the festival for the first time.

the inside...

Bobby, here's another a picture of the warehouse's that you remember. Those two were the first one's built. Kinda sad, my greatgrandfather was there when they were built and I was there when they burned in 1996 http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I have a huge picture of the distillery (in black and white) taken during the early days of Heaven Hill's birth http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Parked in front (in my picture), is my grandfather's Joseph L. Beam's car http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif As you know Papa Beam was the first Master Distiller at Heaven Hill http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifThat massive picture hangs in my house today http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

If anyone needs the rest of the directions, or hours, that got cut off for Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey, you can find them here. (http://www.kybourbon.com/english/pages/trail.html)

Edit - She's now added the info.

Good picture, BettyeJo! I realise that Distillery Architecture is a short study, but certian buildings are distinctive. Those warehouses in that style probably will never be built again, unless for some reason there's a "Retro" revival in some restoration. So now the examples at the Old TW Samuels plant at Deatsville are the only surviving ones.( As far as I know, there may be another somewhere.) For those who do not know, Heaven Hill owns all but a couple of them and Maker's Mark owns the balance. Also there is one warehouse there that matches the elevation of the others but is a bit shorter in length, a little stubby one. My Grandfathers older brother was a warehouseman at Deatsville, and I remember him saying that he recalled the time when they bought the barrels to the warehouse and away to the bottling room on horse drawn wagons. Now I wish I had asked the date.

Other buildings of distinction was the distillery building, whatever the lower footprint, it carried up 3 or 4 stories and there was the smaller part that went up beyond that.

On my list of things to do , to make a few birdhouses modeled after these warehouses and an old distillery building , just not too close to the top yet. I bet a 6 inch snow would get it started! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
