    Very interesting especially the tasting rooms. The article is slightly misleading on the reference to Heartland Distillers. They may in fact be distilling bourbon but obviously aren't able to sell their distillate yet. The stuff they are currently putting out is from the former LDI.

    Kentucky Bourbon Trail/Indiana Bourbon trail is like Disney World/Disney store.

    This is a nice idea, but they need more actual stills operating and producing bourbon. There's already a wine trail, maybe turn it into a wine & spirits trail.

    I don't think that I would be quite so dismissive of the potential of this new initiative. If Sun King and Three Floyds get into micro distilling I would suspect they will produce as much of a quality product as any other micro. While these places won't offer the history of KY bourbon making, the idea of touring high quality distilling and brewery facilities at the same location could definitely be considered unique attractions. Obviously it will take some time before anything comes from this, but at least it lays the foundation.

    BTW, speaking of them parks, don't forget that Indiana had the first amusement park built around a THEME.... 9 years before Disney did his thing....we had Santa Claus Land (Now expanded into Holiday World).

    I see this as a plus, a micro is a natural extension of a brewery. Sign me up for the tour.

    Tom, not dismissive just a little humor. As my first post in the thread indicated I am excited especially about the tasting opportunities. And if you make the Indy gathering in May I will bring Spring Mill Indiana Bourbon.

    From what I have seen, breweries that experiment with distilling do so because they have the time/capacity/ability to. 3 floyds cant make enough beer for their own state not to mention the other 4 or 5 states they dabble in. They could triple production and still not reach 1/5 of the United States population. They have a great thing going with beer. They sell every drop that they make. To get into distilling would be foolish IMO.
