Copper & Kings

So last weekend I was lucky enough to meet up with the Fabulous Amanda Schuster of The Alcohol Professor who happened to be on business in  Kentucky, attending the annual Kentucky Bourbon Affair (tough life, right?)  While I didn’t partake of the bourbon, I did get to check out Copper & Kings, the Bluegrass’s very own Brandy & Absinthe distillery located in the heart of Louisville’s Butchertown District. Owner Joe Heron, a lovely South African fellow – who just so happens to have pretty rockin’ taste in both booze and branding – gave us the tour. The distillery is architecturally stunning, It’s an old brick warehouse building that’s conversion has been most thoughtfully done.  Three copper stills greet you upon entrance, these house the brandy and they are named for girls from Bob Dylan Songs.  When you arrive in the lower depths of the distillery to find hundreds upon hundreds of barrels aging, you’ll be greeted by music.  We arrived to bluegrass and had to wonder if it made for a better tasting product…
