How Bourbon is Made by Ghosts

Are you afraid of ghosts? There are a few friendly ones, you know. The ghosts at Boone County Distilling Co. in Independence, Kentucky couldn’t be more hospitable! They’re distilling bourbon, after all!

Only 6 minutes off the interstate lies the  Boone County Distillery Co. where they say the bourbon is “made by ghosts.” Too far to go, well then, you can sit back and listen to today’s episode and I’ll bring Boone County directly to you.

Michael Thornton guides us from barley to bottle on this virtual tour of the Boone County Distillery. If you listen closely you might hear the moans of those distillers who came before.

Make yourself an Old-Fashioned and settle in for the tour!
