My Trip To Kentucky Bourbon Trail | Louisville, KY

9 months ago4300 views

Good morning Gisters, It's your girl Ms Travelin Diva! Wrapping up my trip to Louisville, and it was EVERYTHING! Background, we came to Kentucky strictly for the Bourbon trail, but we did get in a few museums and some art during our stay. We split our trip between Louisville and Bardstown which I highly recommend given the distances between the distilleries. Bardstown is a very cute and lovely town and definitely worth the visit for a few days. Started the Kentucky Bourbon Trail at the "Frazier Museum" (also visited 21c Museum), and I visited the following 10 distilleries (over 4 days) and tasted their Bourbons: Evan Williams Michter’s Fort Nelson Jim Bean Angels Envy Maker’s Mark Barton 1792 Heaven Hill Preservation Distillery Lux Row Wilett Distillery Food: In Louisville, we dined at Proof on Main, Le Moo, Repeal, Biscuit Belly and Back Deck BBQ (black owned). In Bardstown we dined at Cinco De Mayos and Pat’s Family Diner. Lodging: We stayed at the Hotel Distil in Louisville and the Fairfield Inn Marriott Bardstown. Now a little history regarding Bourbon. Nearly 95% of the world’s Bourbon is produced in Kentucky. All Bourbon is Whisky but not all Whisky is Bourbon. There’s no law mandating that bourbon must be produced in Kentucky, although it might seem that way given the state’s dominance in distilling the distinctive corn-based, barrel-aged whiskey (however, to be called a Bourbon, it must be produced in the U.S.). So is there something in Kentucky’s water that has caused the bourbon industry to flourish? In fact, there is. The state sits atop vast deposits of blue limestone, which filters out hard iron and imparts sweet-tasting calcium and magnesium. If Louisville (or the Bourbon Trail) is on your radar, you will not be disappointed spending a few days or even a week here! Here are a few pictures from my visit in the next posts. Enjoy and Happy Travels! Live. Laugh. Love

That was previously a black man's land. The entire America was for people of West African people. No, slavery did not happen LIKE WE THINK. The reverse was the case. White people came from russia and sent blacks to West AFRICA. The remaining blacks there became slaves. The evidence is still there in the american cities with historical name. for example, even the name America, Canada, Alaska, Chicago, Missisipi are igbo or yoruba names.

You people experience all these great things in a White man's land and wonder why it isn't experienced in Africa, because one thing differentiates White people from Blacks: Love. A White man shows you true, natural and unconditional love, but black people's love is cosmetic. Civilization is the greatest denominator that differentiates we humans from lower forms. The more civilized we are, the more we can do all the great things that exist in this world. And civilization means working together and caring for one another to build a society that is conducive for all individuals to achieve their goals in life. You cannot tell me how that is possible without the true, natural and unconditional love among people.
