The Filson Historical Society is having a fund raising event that will be a bus tour of the distilleries owned by E H Taylor, Jr. in the 1870's - Buffalo trace and Woodford Reserve. The Filson has Taylor's papers from this period and I will be on the bus to discuss this collection at the Filson and the history of these two distilleries. The bus will leave Louisville at 9:00 and go first to Buffalo Trace for the Hard Hat tour and then lunch. It will then go to Woodford Reserve for the tour and then back to Louisville by 5:00. If you are interested in coming on the trip, it is $60.00 for members of the Filson and $70.00 for non-members, but if you mention my name, you will get the Filson Membership price for your tickets. You can contact the Filson at (502)635-5083.
