belle meade bourbon

my job every thanksgiving is to bring the alcohol.  this year i’m picking up a bottle of belle meade bourbon.  it’s quickly become my bourbon of choice over bulleit and makers.  brothers andy and charlie nelson revived their great great great grandfather charles nelson’s legendary brand late last year using his original recipe.  (side note: nelson’s greenbrier distillery was added to the national register of historic places in 2008 i.e. there’s a lot of history in every bottle).  i had an opportunity to visit with them this past summer and hear their story.  you can read more about the two of them and their bourbon here.  i’m not a bourbon expert, but i do know what i like and this stuff is the real deal.  don’t show up to thanksgiving empty handed.  grab a bottle of belle meade bourbon.  cheers.
