Old world craftsmanship

It’s gratifying to see real craftsmen still at work in this country. My wife and I were treated to a tour of the only distillery owned cooperage in the US today, the Brown-Forman cooperage. The operations manager, Darren gave us a great look into a working cooperage. Most of the barrels are headed for Jack Daniels with the balance going to Woodford Reserve and Old Forester. Thanks to Darren at the plant and Michelle from Republic.
