    Bourbon Hunters TV show

    "Welcome to Bourbon Hunters, the television show that will
    take you deep into the heart of Kentucky where Bourbon has
    been made for more than 200 years by men and women who
    have a passion for the secret recipes that have been passed
    down from generation to generation."

    A Nov. 2011 blog post announces that BH has "...chosen our
    3 hosts and canít wait to show them off to America in 2012."

    Re: Bourbon Hunters TV show

    The name makes it sound like the show will be following dusty hunters as they search for old and rare bourbons, but the description gives me the impression the show will be about making - or just drinking - bourbon.

    I wonder if it will be as exciting as Swamp People...

    From the website at http://www.bourbonhunters.com/:

    ...Kentucky is the one place where true Bourbon is made...

    It'll be interesting to see the first show, and go from there. Looks like a televised version of the bourbon trail with a little follow the master distiller around thrown in.

    It's a bit odd that Popcorn, a notorious moonshiner, is on the front page. You'd think they would want to distance themselves from that side of the industry.

    That was the impression I got. Last thing we need is a bunch of wannabe hunters out there stealing OUR bourbon

    They seem to have forgotten a state or two. If I remember the Kentucky tours usually say 95% of bourbon is made in Kentucky. There is another 5% they are forgetting about?

    My thoughts exactly.

    With that said the show sounds interesting and I will most certainly give it a couple looks.

    Re: Bourbon Hunters TV show

    Hi Everyone - We'd like to introduce ourselves, we are the producers of Bourbon Hunters! It's nice to see a thread opened about our show - We look forward to creating a fun show that showcases both the Bourbon Industry and the great state of Kentucky. What's the show about? Simple enough, it's about Bourbon - from the large distillers to the small batch makers, as well as searching out the rare Bourbons and their Makers. We'll also search out the families who still make Bourbon from their own recipes handed down for generations. It's more than following the Bourbon Trail, it's following the Bourbon Lifestlye.


    Most importantly, we could definitely use your help to launch the Pilot -- If you'd like to learn more about the show and how you can help us launch it, visit the Kickstarter page - here's the link:

    Thanks and Cheers!

    Re: Bourbon Hunters TV show

    They joined BE.com before SB.com? Rookies!

    And don't they know some of the best collections of bourbon and memorabilia are in the possession of our members.

    There are three or four "potential" hosts that I hope I don't see on this show.

    Good luck with the show!
