    The Bourbon Trail

    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

    I have a huge picture of the distillery (in black and white) taken during the early days of Heaven Hill's birth Parked in front (in my picture), is my grandfather's Joseph L. Beam's car As you know Papa Beam was the first Master Distiller at Heaven Hill That massive picture hangs in my house today

    Re: The Bourbon Trail

    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!

    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.

    Edit - She's now added the info.
