After the tour in Bardstown at the Heaven Hill Distillery, we were driven back to Louisville where we found a nice dinner and some great bourbon to taste in a hidden Speakeasy at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience! After a somewhat cheesy, but overall entertaining video about the history of Evan William’s bourbon, artisanal Master Distiller Charlie Downs presented us with three fantastic bourbons and schooled us in the inexact science of bourbon tasting. When everything was complete we were given signed Bourbon to take home (after a last tour through the gift shop of course)!
We had a great time and look forward to trying another bourbon tour through Mint Julep Tours in the future! For more information about Mint Julep Tours check out their website or Facebook page!
