It's said that there are two hallowed traditions in the State of Kentucky: horseracing and bourbon. Brian Unger and some locals travel back through three centuries of Kentucky history to see how these traditions came to be. First, they hit the Bourbon Trail of distilleries that half a million tourists visit each year. Then, they veer off the fabled trail to where tourists aren't allowed - to explore the origin of the uniquely crafted, all-American beverage. They visit a majestic, soon-to-reopen distillery built 100 years ago, and the place where modern bourbon distilling first began. The group distills their own bourbon and meets a woman with a very special role in the world of bourbon brewing.
