|Original Green Brier Bottle|
The next part of the tour took place in the actual distillery. The pictures are located below with descriptions.
Overall, this was a great tour. The guide had very detailed information on the history, the process and was able to answer any questions we had. They gave generous pours and the drinks were delicious. My favorite was the Sherry finished bourbon, it was similar to the smoothness of Angle's Envy but had more of a cherry flavor. The single barrel was harsh and definitely benefited from a few drops of water but that is expected with a higher proof bourbon. The regular Belle Meade was also good and fits its price of $40, I ended up getting a bottle from them. They also have a white whiskey which was on par for white whiskey but was not as sweet as others, it probably uses less corn. I would recommend checking out the distillery as well as any of their bourbons. They are currently working of a Tennessee Whiskey, made in a similar style to Jack Daniels, that I will be sure to pick up as soon as it comes out.
