I participated in the oral history sponsored by Buffalo Trace with the Nunn Center at U of K. They have made a documentary from the tapes and it will air on KET (Kentucky Educational Television) this summer. Here is the schedule for those in Kentucky who want to see the program.

Tonight is the first chance to view the documentary "The Quest for the Perfect Bourbon" tonight on KETKY. For those of you out of state, the Nunn center is working on adding the documentary to their website for viewing. I suspect it will be a few more weeks before it is online, but it will be there. They are also working to add the interviews they did with Gary and myself to the viewing list.

I'm all for setting the bar high but to say Perfect Bourbon? I don't think there is such an animal. If they do produce it, I hope they have the kindness to put it outside my price range, so I can continue to try all different kinds of bourbon {looking for the perfect one} which doesn't exist. :?: BT makes incredible stuff though, no question.
Brown Party Liquor? Yesss Sir!

Here is the link to the entire documentary. http://www.nunncenter.org/buffalotrace/quest/

This is actually 8 minutes or so longer than the version that aired on KET.
