Kentucky is synonymous with Bourbon, but few places maintain the history of Bourbon in the Bluegrass State like the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History in Bardstown. Mary Ellyn Hamilton is the museum’s curator, and tells us about the collection’s early days in the mansion of Barton Brands founder Oscar Getz to its current home in Bardstown’s Spalding Hall. In the news, Diageo agrees to take a majority stake in India’s United Spirits, Beam expands its presence in Louisville, and I’ll explain why this week’s episode comes from Thermopolis, Wyoming.
