Bourbon release set for April 27 A Taste in Danville

April 18, 2019


DANVILLE  — Wilderness Trail Distillery is ready to introduce Small Batch Bourbon made with rye small grain. Samples will be available at one of the best places to enjoy central Kentucky fare, A Taste in Danville. This springtime event also is a feast for the ears for music lovers.

The Danville distillery’s third annual A Taste in Danville, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 27 at 4095 Lebanon Road, will be a day devoted to featuring some of the area’s best Bourbon, food and live music.

Wilderness Trail Distillery’s contribution to the Taste in Danville will be tastes of its Small Batch Bottled in Bond. Shane Baker and Dr. Pat Heist, the distiller’s co-owners, like high-proof whiskey, served neat, so they couldn’t resist making this third expression a Bottled in Bond. The Small Batch joins a wheated single barrel bottled in bond Bourbon and Rye Whiskey, both enjoying rave reviews.

The 20 food vendors at A Taste in Danville represent a wide array of culinary offerings. Danville’s The Still at AMBRAbev offers Brazilian flair and Tut’s features Middle Eastern dishes. Caribbean Spice is back with Cuban creations while Rico’s Empanadas explores Puerto Rican and Latin American cooking. BBQ fans can veer toward Biscuits BBQ, Triple J&C and Pasture at Marksbury Farm. The Combination prepares TexMex dishes. The Bluebird of Stanford and Danville’s the Caterer and Southern Plate Café guarantee delicious offerings.

For the sweet tooth, try buttercream frosted cupcakes by Sweets by Cindy, Bourbon balls by Sandy’s Surprises, Four Generations homemade Bourbon Ice Cream or Southern Style Kettlecorn. Elmwood Inn serves up the finest teas, including Bourbon Black Tea. Refreshing lemonade is supplied by Nomelade.

If a Bloody Mary or Bloody Susan is your style of waking up, stop by Bloody Kentucky for a bottle of their original or spicy mix. You can’t miss their truck. It’s an M1079, an American field office truck that was used in Iraq. For a light snack, there is Fox Run Beer Cheese in a variety of flavors or try Sadistic Mistresses all natural hot sauces.

In addition to tastes, Wilderness Trail offers a several cocktails. Country Boy Brewery will be on site with their much-loved brews.

Our music will be a feast for your ears. The Brown Family Band of Berea performs first and then Pikeville’s Down To The River band hits the stage.  The Brown Family consists of father Yogi, who plays guitar and piano; daughter, Becky, who sings and plays guitar; and son Andy, a bass player and singer who majored in music. Down To the River, which performs songs written by Tony Mullins, combines instrumentals, rock & roll, soul and freeform jams. Down To the River molds blues, country, instrumental jam rock into what they term Appalachian Rock and Roll.

Wilderness Trail believes strongly in charitable causes and will donate a portion of proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
