Bourbon - Owensboro Kentucky
Kentucky is the birthplace of Bourbon and still produces 95% of the world’s supply, more than 1,700,000 barrels a year!
Only the Bluegrass State has the perfect natural mix of climate, conditions and pure limestone water necessary for producing the world’s greatest Bourbon.
The City of Owensboro here in Daviess County Kentucky, has a rich bourbon tradition. In fact, a distillery operated in the county as early as 1805. Owensboro has been a hub for bourbon production because of its location along a rail line and waterway, its tremendous natural iron-free limestone water source, extensive oak forests, and because local farmers have always produced a great deal of corn.
The BBB GeoTour (GC497)
Gather up the family and friends and plan a road trip to enjoy three old-fashioned Kentucky traditions with a side of geocaching. Barbecue Mutton smoked from wood, not from a sauce, and definitely not from a bottle. Bourbon, world-renowned Kentucky Bourbon, made from a local natural limestone water source then aged in new charred oak barrels for a minimum of two years. Bluegrass Music completes the trio as Owensboro Kentucky is just minutes away from the home place of Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass. We invite you to experience these three traditions through the Barbecue, Bourbon, and BlueGrass GeoTour; set within the award-winning Smothers Park, located on the Scenic Ohio River.
