Kentucky Bourbon Tales Oral History Project

Description: 
Kentucky Bourbon Tales Oral History Project, a partnership with the Kentucky Distillers’ Association (KDA), is a multi-year effort by the Nunn Center in the UK Libraries to document the history of bourbon in the state, and features the stories of the master distillers and bourbon barons from iconic distilleries that participate in the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour, including Wild Turkey, Heaven Hill, Brown-Forman, Woodford Reserve, Bulleit, Maker’s Mark, Four Roses and Jim Beam, as well as the new Michter’s Distillery and Independent Stave Cooperage. The oral history project yielded the documentary "Kentucky Bourbon Tales: Distilling the Family Spirit" which airs on Kentucky Educational Television.
