Situated next to Yew Dell Gardens in Crestwood, is the Kentucky Artisan Distillery. The friendly staff greeted us with a Jefferson's Manhattan welcome cocktail.
Inside the distillery and visitor's center, we enjoyed a tasting of Jefferson's, Whiskey Row & Highspire whiskies. There was also a bar for additional pours. As only the finest ice would do on this summer day, our friends from Kentucky Straight Ice were on hand with hand-crafted crystal clear ice for those who enjoy their bourbon on the rocks.
Head Distiller, Jade Peterson, met with us to tell us about the distillery and answer questions. The event included a tour of the distillery which uses a combination of new and antique distillation equipment.
Chateau Bourbon provided delicious appetizers: Bourbon sloppy Joe sliders, spicy kettle chip nachos and amazing bourbon salted caramel brownie bites.
