Episodes airing nationally and on Kentucky’s PBS channel throughout February
Louisville, KY (February 1, 2022) – Samantha Brown, a well-known globe trotter recently visited Kentucky to film her Emmy award-winning travel show, Samantha’s Places to Love and found plenty of Louisville to Love during her visits to Louisville Stoneware & Co., the Muhammad Ali Center and the popular Frankfort Avenue restaurant Bourbons Bistro, one of the founding members on Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail ®️ (UBT). All stops on the UBT have at least 60 different bourbon varieties on the bar with trained staff that can explain the nuances and tasting notes in the varied offerings.
Brown’s Louisville stops showcase some of Bourbon City’s most iconic and authentic attractions including a look at Louisville’s native son, Muhamad Ali’s life and teachings at the Muhammad Ali Center. Her visit to Louisville Stoneware & Co., one of the 50 oldest businesses in the U.S., gives her an inside look at the process of making stoneware from Master Mold-Maker Ngoc Phan. Of course no visit to Louisville is complete without enjoying bourbon both in a glass and on your plate as she does at Bourbons Bistro to recap her time in the Bluegrass State.
Other stops around the state included Buffalo Trace Distillery, Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest, Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farms and Bardstown for the Bardstown Bourbon Company.
