A leading sales agency, best known for helping clients market and sell their Thoroughbreds at public auction, Taylor Made is also home to an impressive roster of stallions, including Eskendereya, Northern Afleet, Old Fashioned, Graydar, and Astrology.
After that, Bourbon immersion sets in as you’ll privately tour Four Roses Distillery.Surrounded by the picturesque landscape of Anderson County (near Lawrenceburg, KY), the facility was completed in 1910. The Spanish Mission-Style architecture is unique in Bourbon Country. Jim Rutledge will lead the group through a private tasting, featuring the signature mash bills of Four Roses. Lunch will also be provided by James Beard nominated chef, Ouita Michel, from her Wallace Station restaurant.
The next stop is Wild Turkey Distillery. Home to Master Distiller Jimmy Russell, who counts 60 years of experience under his belt. We’ll taste a number of their famous Bourbons, in their iconic new tasting room.
