Welcoming the Golden Hour by SummerJade

A little fairy with a bird on her toes rests on my kitchen countertop. A golden glow
signals the start of happy hour. It’s magic time!
The Bourbon is Woodford Reserve my favorite from the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky.

Bourbon is a type of American whiskey – a distilled spirit made primarily from corn (maize). The name derives from its historical association with an area known as Old Bourbon, around what is now Bourbon County, Kentucky. While it may be made anywhere in the United States, it is strongly associated with Kentucky.
On May 4, 1964, the United States Congress recognized Bourbon Whiskey as a “distinctive product of the United States.” Only whiskey produced in the USA can be called bourbon.

    Beautiful, beautiful work would you please add this to the group Artistic Libation

  • I took this photo (about 20 of them! lol) for the challenge in Artistic Libations, and this was the first group I submitted it to before any other. It still says awaiting approval, though. ☺ I just don’t know… I did enter the challenge there.

    Wonderful, wonderful image! So much interest, beauty and detail. These added features to the overall image do not detract from the main subject. Superb job here – outstanding capture. Cheers, S.

  • We were on the “Bourbon Trail” in KY recently and of the 5 distilleries we visited, the sample from this one tasted the best. This is the style of glass they offered in their gift shop, a surprise to me. I took many photos there, but this shot is in my home. I can read the fine print on the label at full size, but not here on RB. The “legs” (trickles) inside the glass are authentic and were unavoidable. I believe they indicate quality anyway. Thanks so much for this feature!! I no longer have a full bottle! lol

    You did it girl ;))) Congratulations on your feature! What would you like to drink?

  • lol…info about that bottle above…it’s no longer full! Guess I better add a link to Woodford Reserve distillery. The great shape of their bottle inspired me! ☺
