Pepper Distillery Tour

My friend and I took the Pepper Distillery Tour as a birthday celebration. The tour guides were very kind and friendly with a passion for the history of bourbon making. They did a fabulous job taking us to Woodford Reserve and Pepper Distillery. I loved how the two were connected in history and the stories that the tour guides provided made for a well-organized tour. Thank you, Stone Fences Tours!

Pepper Distillery Tour

My brother and I took the Distillery tour which went to two distilleries, Woodford Reserve and Barrel House distillery. The Pepper Distillery was not open to the public. The Woodford Reserve was the most interesting because of the complexity of the operations bigger operation although small. The Barrel House distillery is a small craft operation that made other spirits and not just bourbon. The tour operators were very informative along the drive providing tidbits of historical information about the local area. Stone Fences Tours are on my list for other tours they offer.

Notorious Lex Tour

Took the Notorious Lex Tour and found it to be a wonderful visit to the past. Would recommend it to anyone looking for interesting people and events from long ago. Jerry, our tour guide, was very friendly and accommodating. Never felt rushed. Made the day fun. Be prepared to walk quite a bit.

Jerry and Hope were fantastic guides, very much like practicing historians, full of information about local history, current events, American history, and many topics. The Ripy tour immediately caught my attention as a unique opportunity to visit a spectacular historic home and get a different insight into the local bourbon industry/history. The tour was relaxed, well-paced, well-organized, and had a personal touch. Would definitely sign up for another tour in the future!

Haint Nothin’ but Spirits

 

When the days get shorter and the evenings get cooler, our thoughts turn to Halloween and ghost stories and of course, bourbon. Buffalo Trace Distillery not only produces award-winning spirits but is also home to supernatural spirits. The show Ghost Hunters visited the distillery and documented their experiences. It is the only site in which every member of the team experienced paranormal occurrences.  Accompany us as we explore the darker side of the famous distillery. Hear the tales of those who still stroll the grounds and inhabit the historical buildings of Buffalo Trace. If you need a dose of liquid courage, tastings are included. Another round of spirits will be served up at the infamous Liberty Hall, home of Frankfort’s “Gray Lady.” This historic site is home to three ghosts, as the story goes. Come tour this old mansion and hear the stories of Frankfort’s oldest residents. We will drink a toast to these sorrowful spirits with a special cocktail. Exorcise your fears as we visit Frankfort’s most notorious spirits.
