Some problems are truly insoluble. On the other hand, some issues present solutions so obvious that to not avail yourself of a quick, easy and fair outcome calls into question your judgment. Sadly, such was our recent experience at Three Boys Distillery. Long story short,...More

While not an official stop on the trail, this small distillery offered a unique opportunity to actually talk with the owner/master distiller and taste Bourbon straight from the barrel. High end Bourbon only sold on site.

We did the barrel tasting at the barn. The bourbon was so good that we left with a barrel strength bottle pulled straight from one of the barrels we sampled. The owner was a hoot!

This is a relatively new distillery on a farm. Staff was very helpful, and offer a tasting for a small fee. The spirits are good, but not as good as some others. The prices, I thought, were very high. It’s an interesting place to visit.
