Time for another road trip…this time to the spiritual home of Bourbon…Kentucky. This week’s episode comes from DeSha’s Restaurant and Bar in Lexington, which tied for top honors as Best Whisky Bar in the World in Whisky Magazine’s recent Icons of Whisky Awards. It’s about an hour away from another Icon award winner…the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, which was named Best Visitor Attraction by Whisky Magazine. Assistant Master Distiller Kevin Smith and Rob Samuels, grandson of Maker’s Mark founder William Samuels Sr. will guide us through the distillery and its new visitors center.
