BOTCON 2016 - THE FINAL
(griffin's 2016 BotCon adventure from Australia)
I didn't do this tour, so unless someone sends me some details and photos from it, these are the details from the BotCon Brochure.
Horses and Kentucky Bourbon Tour
Wednesday, April 6, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm
Join us for a fun filled day as we experience two of the things the great state of Kentucky is known for: their thoroughbreds and their bourbon!
We start the day off via charter bus with a visit to Church Hill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. The visit will include breakfast in the Track Kitchen, seeing the starting gate up close and touring the track all while watching the horses during their morning workouts.
From there we’ll hop on the bus and stop at White Castle’s for lunch. They are credited as the very first fast food burger restaurant in the country!
Then it is on to bourbon country!
First, we will visit the Jim Beam Distillery, makers of the world’s
number one bourbon. You will get to witness the craftsmanship that evolved
from 200 years of bourbon making, with a behind-the-scenes look at the
trade, a stop at the museum and of course, a Bourbon sampling! We end the
day with a stop at the Evan Williams Distillery.
After a tour of the location and sampling, you are free to make the short walk back to the hotel at the tours conclusion or stay and shop for gifts and souvenirs.
