Bourbon sleeps in charred oak barrels at the John Burton distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. We had a fascinating, free tour of the facility. The distillery was on summer break so no brewing was active, but we saw all the equipment. Production was active in the warehouse, though, where the whisky was busy aging. It will do so for six years or so. Every distillery has a tour. And every tour ends with a tasting. We tee-totalers stuck to the bourbon ball candy. I had the Tokina 11-16mm ultra wide angle lens for this shot.
