Katherine and I have a day or so to kill somewhere along the I65 corridor next week.

For a while now I've been interested in driving the Bourbon Trail just southwest of Lexington, Kentucky. Katherine is kinda 'blah' about bourbon. . . But, she loves horses. Just so happens that many of the great thoroughbred racing stables are in the exact same towns as the distillers. And they too give tours.

What a happy coincidence.|:)

Sounds like you've got a built in designated driver too. Good deal!

I dunno, maybe she'd like a bourbon manhattan; I'd don't think I've ever seen her drink one.

Lotta the distilleries are in dry counties. No tasting rooms, no sales.

Bourbon county for instance is a dry county. But you get little chocolates that taste like bourbon.

The woodford reserve tour is pretty cool. nice drive through horse country

Woodford looks cool, as does Maker's Mark. . . aw hell, they all look cool.

Plus there's a tavern in Bardstown known for its bourbon and whiskey selection.

That is a ways off of I-65, but looks like a better road trip to me. Except maybe in the spring, Kentucky in the spring is pretty awesome.
