Woodford Reserve Distillery - The oldest and smallest distillery in Kentucky traces its origins to 1797 when Elijah Pepper began distilling in Woodford County. This National Landmark crafts Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select, the Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby. It is my understanding that this is the only copper pot still and triple distillation process used to handcraft Bourbon today. The tour of the distillery was very interesting. A great Discover Kentucky day trip. I didn't partake in the bourbon tasting at the end of the tour but I sure did enjoy the bourbon balls.
