This is one of the warehouses where they store 4000 barrels of bourbon whisky. It was the smallest warehouse on the property. All the rest of them store 20,000 barrels!!
Look! The cutest couple on the planet!
(And yes I am wearing one of my favorites shirts! lol)
One of 2 white massive tubs where the unfiltered bourbon whisky is stored.
Normally people on the tour could go right up and see the bourbon whisky flowing but they were painting so we couldn't. :-( But one good thing is we live real close so I'm sure we'll go again soon lol
One of the coolest things on the tour was the bottling process. This is the assembly line where the whisky is poured into the bottles, labels attached and most important: the famous red wax that seals the whole thing!
The workers that do the wax dipping do 23 bottles a minute!!
Finally before we left, we got a chance to dip our own bottles. Both of us decided to be unselfish and get gifts for other people. Here are two pics of us dipping our own bottles!
All in all, I think this is definitely one of the best bourbons on the market. Besides the fact that it is primarily made of corn instead of wheat(only 5 bourbons in the world do this), it is really good tasting bourbon whisky! Until next time!

I was a fortunate recipient of a present from one of the birds very shortly after taking this picture. I was POOPED on! The lovely bird pooped all down the front of me and all over my camera....and go figure the girl who was working there had no paper towels, you would assume this sort of thing happens ALL the time, but no. So, off Kevin goes in search of paper towels to wipe me down. And yes, we walked around for the rest of the day as the poop dried on my shirt...I was a good sport! Ha!The flowers all around the zoo were very pretty!
It was too Hot for the Lions to be up and about so they were enjoying a sun bath on their platform. We were lucky enough to see this guy "Roar"!!The Gorilla's were highly entertaining. All the Baby wanted was to run around and have some fun but it seemed as though no one was interested!!
Can you see his little tongue? He was drinking from the waterfall!
And then of course, we were home bound (with a Donato's Pizza in hand! YUM!)
