I was just wondering if there are any videos or DVD's available on the making of Bourbon, the history of it or anything else that could be enjoyed on the tube?

Do you know about Chuck's Mad and Bottled in Kentucky (http://cowdery.home.netcom.com/page8.html)?

There are at least two:

Made and bottled in KY available from Chuck's site (http://home.netcom.com/%7Ecowdery/page2.html)

The History Channel: Hands on History, Bourbon. Available from Jim Beam's site. (http://www.jimbeam.com/beam/v5/outpost/product_detail.aspx?category=Media&productid=JB03019)

This past Winter, didn't Bettye Jo post a link to a video on YouTube. The video looked like it was shot in the 70's and I think it focused on the cooperage aspect of the process, how barrels are made and charred etc? Not strictly "bourbon making" but interesting nonetheless. Trouble is, I can't seem to find it.

Cowdery's "Made & Bottled In Kentucky" is good. Good scenes of the what is now Woodford Reserve distillery before they bought it, you can see the amount of work they put into it.

The History Channel's "Hands On History: Bourbon" is not very good at all. Kinda hokey.

But the History Channel's "Rumrunners, Moonshiners And Bootleggers" is very good.
I highly recommend it. It covers whiskey in this country from the beginning before the Revolution up to present day bootleggers.
Gary Reagan is in it, he has a cool looking bottle of White Lightning with a lightning bolt on it. He won't say where he got from of course.
And our own Bettye Jo Boone's Mother and Aunt are in it telling about a Beam being busted for making illegal whiskey.

If you get the History Channel's, "Rummrunner's Moonshiner's and Bootleggers" progam...make special note of two women (toward the end) talking about their "Daddy" getting caught by the famous revenurer "Big Six" making moonshine. They are "twins" Jean and Jo :grin: :grin: :grin: Jean is my mother and Jo is our :grin: "Aunt Jo" tour guide and historian for the Getz :grin: :grin: :grin:
