For those people who don’t enjoy wine (who could that be?) or those who also like to try different drinks sometimes I have an excellent recommendation. In Lexington, at the Farm, there is a Kentucky Mist Distillery tasting room. Visitors can sample Moonshine flights or buy a bottle to take home. They also have a nice selection of gift items. The distillery is located in Letcher County.
I have a weakness for the flavored Moonshines after trying one last year. So we stopped by for a tasting. I tried a few, but found myself buying their Caramel Apple. It’s delicious and perfect for the season!by admin
This month I celebrated my birthday at Chrisman Mill in Nicholasville, with lunch at Fuego, the winery’s new wood fired restaurant. Besides being one of the states oldest wineries, they now are home to Hummingbird Ridge Distillery and Fuego. Not only can visitors be treated to an excellent selection of wine, but they can also enjoy a cocktail made from the Jamaican style rum that is distilled there or enjoy lunch or dinner from the Fuego grill. For lunch we enjoyed a wood fired pizza and Argentinian Chimichurri burger sliders and finished it off with a slice of Hummingbird cake. It was a great way to celebrate.
If you haven’t been to Chrisman Mill for a while, I recommend a visit. There’s been a lot of changes and the results are excellent.
