Driving through Platte County, the rolling hills and soft greens of grass and trees remind me of Kentucky. And like Kentucky, there’s bourbon here.
McCormick Distillery in Weston, Mo., is one of the oldest of its kind in the U.S. It was established in 1856 before the light bulb was invented.
It’s been 20 years since the Holladay Distillery in Weston offered tours to the general public, but they’re back again, and the tour doesn’t disappoint.
McCormick Distilling Co. stopped making bourbon for 30 years at its Weston plant, but in March it fired up the original Holladay Distillery.
