    I had no idea he was a philosopher. Somehow seems very appropriate, though!

    Re: Distilleries, Master Distillers....

    In Chuck Cowdery's excellent documentary, "Made and Bottled in Kentucky", there are many highlights. One is the interview with Jerry Dalton. I can't recite a quote, but he conveys a very zen-like demeanor and approach to his craft. At times he seems to be deciding how deep into his thoughts to delve in order to provide an answer that is both adequate and intelligible.

    OK Tim, now you should know the past and current Master Distillers at each distillery. I hope you and your wife can join the fun once again.

    You already met Julian as I recall. Drew Kulsveen with KBD (Black Maple Hill, Old Bardstown, Willetts, etc) may also show up at the Gazebo.
