I just now registered on this site. I have been looking for Virgin Bourbon here in Kentucky. I was on a fishing trip to Pickwick back in October and found it at B&B Liquors in Florence AL, I believe. I was stunned to find it at all. I didn't know they had revived the label.
My ex-wife's grandfather was Marvin Padgett and in the 50's he bought the J.P. Dant Distillery in Meadowlawn, KY. He renamed it Old Boone Distillery. Among the many brands he sold was Old Boone, Distiller's Pride and Virgin Bourbon! The label is exactly as it was when he made it except his label read Old Boone Distilling Co., Meadowlawn, KY. It now reads Meadowlawn Distilling Co., Bardstown, KY.
I found it excellent. Very smooth. I bought 2 bottles home and even gave one to my ex-wife for nostalgia-sake.
Marvin also raced horses and in 1965 his horse Blue Skyer won the Louisiana Derby and was third in the Kentucky Derby behind Lucky Debonair. His son Jimmy Padgett was the trainer. His other son, Bill Padgett, was Marvin's plant manager and when he sold the distillery in 1971 Bill went to work as plant manager at Austin Nichols in Lawrenceburg, then worked the last 13 or so years of his career for Bill Samuels in Loretto. Last year I gave him a framed shadow box of several of his father's labels including Virgin Bourbon as a gift.
My first post. A bit long-winded but I hope you found it interesting.
