Bourbon Blogs We Applaud – Bourbon Veach

As the recognized leader in Kentucky Bourbon Trail® adventures, we know a thing or two about Kentucky and specifically bourbon. Our amazing tour guides and drivers are all extremely knowledgeable on America’s Native Spirit, and can talk for days about the past and present state of the industry. However, the neat thing about bourbon is that there is no shortage of people talking about it, sharing insights and opinions, and researching it’s history as we move into a time period where it’s never been more popular.

Bourbon Blogs We Applaud - Bourbon VeachIn helping to further this great bourbon conversation, we will be periodically highlighting some of our favorite Bourbon Blogs that we applaud for their quality content. To kick things off, we’re featuring one of our favorite bourbon blogs that comes straight from one of the most distinguished bourbon historians there is, Michael Veach. is the blog behind Michael Veach’s bourbon consulting company, Bourbon Veach LLC. For years, Veach has provided bourbon education and historical wisdom throughout the bourbon community. He has written or contributed to five books pertaining to the bourbon industry, and in 2006 was inducted into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.
