Colonel Taylor


 Colonel E. H. Taylor


The focus of this historical tour is the man who modernized the bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. Taylor was a man who traveled Europe and brought those distilling techniques back to his distilleries. We will discuss how he used this knowledge in his operation of the famous Old Crow, Old Fire Copper and Old Taylor Distilleries. We will also explore Taylor’s fight for the purification of bourbon through his support of legislative action.  On this tour, we will visit Glenns Creek Distilling, Buffalo Trace and Castle and Key Distillery. We will receive tours and tastings at all three locations with the tour at Buffalo Trace being the E. H. Taylor Tour.
