Bulleit Tour At Stitzel-Weller

Stitzel-Weller didn't survive the downtrend of bourbon consumption that started in 1972, eventually closing its doors and selling off its brands.  When Tom Bulleit wanted consolidate a number of places he rented to bottle and age his namesake bourbon, he bought this site in Louisville, Kentucky.  His bourbon uses more rye than others, imparting a unique, sharp flavor, and his rye whiskey is 95% from that grain.  Fun tour!
