Stories from local luminaries and writers

A field guide to Kentucky Bourbon Country: distilleries and horse farms, chefs and bartenders, artists and craftspeople.

Inside Wildsam Kentucky Bourbon Country, you'll find rich stories from prize-winning writers, past and present; a detailed road trip plan and profiles of 10 idyllic cities and towns; interviews with distillers, chefs, musicians and poets; delightful miscellany from the archives, selective recommendations about authentic Kentucky experiences and a shortcut guide to the Bourbon Trail.

"An enduring practice, a process demanding order to transcend grain and water for something greater. The rhythm of the seasons push and pull Kentucky’s bourbon against the oak of the barrels stacked inside the rickhouses. For years, sometimes decades, the barrels sit largely undisturbed. Whatever evaporates, they call the angel’s share."
