This weekend, I’m in Bardstown for the annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival. There’s a legitimate claim that this could be the world’s largest whisky festival, with an estimated 50,000 visitors from around the world. In this first of two episodes from Bardstown, we’ll hear from members of the Beam family who are getting back into the family business, look at the boom in Bourbon tourism, and much more!
