This rollicking one hour look at the early days of bourbon making will give you a new and overdue appreciation of the roles women played in developing one of the state’s signature industries. Full of mirth, mayhem and music, Bourbon Babes will change the way you see bourbon. . . and how you sip your mint julep!
