“The distillery is new, but the brand is one of the oldest bourbons around. See how bourbon is made from still to barrel to bottle - if you're lucky they'll even let you push the button to flame the barrel! Production stops on Sunday and Monday, so be sure to go Tuesday - Saturday to see the good stuff being made. Louisville is a bourbon town, so be sure to drink up while you're here!”

“The race is known in the United States as "The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports" or "The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports" for its approximate duration, and is also called "The Run for the Roses" for the blanket of roses draped over the winner. It is the first leg of the American Triple Crown and is followed by the Preakness Stakes, then the Belmont Stakes. Unlike the Preakness and Belmont Stakes, which took hiatuses in 1891–1893 and 1911–1912, respectively, the Kentucky Derby has been run every consecutive year since 1875. ”
