Right on. I used to work for Dickie...he's good people. Nice to see the Kentucky cartel throwing him a shout out.
In case you had any doubt, the finest corn squeezin's in the world are made in Loretto, Ky.
I get a kick out of the T.V. commercial by those Tennessee boys where they're bragging that they are "the oldest registered distillery in the nation." Well good for them...while they were busy trying to be all legallike and get "registered", we were busy making the best whiskey on the planet.
BTW, don't ever make the mistake of calling that Tennessee crap, bourbon. Bourbon only comes from one place....the hills of Kaintuck.
While we're on the subject, did you know one of the greatest Louisiana novels ever written was by a Kentucky native? Can you name the book and author?
UPDATE: Found this most excellent video on Maker's Mark website explaining the distilling process
