Bourbontucky on Audience Network.

Postby Kapea » Sat Jan 24, 2015 3:52 pm

My satellite TV provider sent me a message that a documentary called Bourbontucky will be broadcasting on the Audience Network (DirecTV's cable channel) at 01:00 and 04:00 UTC on 1/25/2015.

I don't know anything about it except what the synopsis says:
It's a beverage, a region, and an entire way of life! Colorful inhabitants come together to create a world class product - Kentucky Bourbon. Enthusiasts, historians, and master distillers share stories of the past, present and future of BOURBONTUCKY!

I've set my DVR to record it. After I watch it I'll let you know if it's worth a look. If you have DirecTV you can watch it for yourself.

Definitely worth watching. It covers bourbon from limestone springs and cornfields to corn milling, coopering, yeast propagation, copper fabrication, still types, history (lots of history), interviews with major players in the bourbon distilling business, restaurant, bar and package businesses...

Lots of Bluegrass music and Kentucky accents, and some pretty amazing video of the Heaven Hill conflagration. Filmed in HD with some beautiful photography.

It's a DirecTV documentary on Audience. Probably won't be distributed.

I can't help but think that it is so good that it will be put up for distribution outside of DirecTV somewhere sooner or later.

I watched it a second time because there is so much to take in, in 90 minutes.

Two things I found particularly interesting -
the Vendome guys saying that they are the only industrial copper fabricators left in the US,

And the two takes on where the name for the whiskey comes from; Bourbon County, KY or Bourbon Street in NOLA. Pretty compelling arguments were made for both claims.

And the root is (sort of) neither according to Cowdery....

First I've heard of there being any question about it. I've always heard the Bourbon County story.

I kinda like the Bourbon Street theory, my mom's side being from New Orleans and all. It's been something I've had in the back of my mind since I was knee-high to a grasshopper...

That's not surprising. Cowdery always has a better idea. :lol:
