Bardstown, KY

Our trip continued on Sunday in Bardstown -- lunch at Talbott Tavern (cool history - check it out on their site) and another distillery stop, this time at Willett. This was hands down our favorite. Why? Small family owned and operated. Really cool location & buildings. Not busy at all. We did the tour here + tastings and it was awesome ($7). With some super manual parts of the process, we could relate -- visiting here made us feel it was possible to start something like this. We even left with some family estate bottles. This place is one not to miss!
