Jim Beam Distillery, Kentucky

I was in Kentucky last year and took a tour of the Jim Beam Distillery, not too far outside of Louisville. Located in the rolling hills, it's a fascinating operation. They still make their Kentucky Bourbon just the way they have for the last 200 years or so. This is a shot of one of the restored buildings.

I'm more of a single malt Scotch fan, but I have to admit, tasting some of the "special" varieties they had at the tasting after the tour made me a believer in bourbon. Jim Beam is just one of many distilleries located in the region, where they take their whiskey very seriously.
