The entrance
After hours of being lost in the tennesee country side we finally found our way the the oldest distillery in the U.S.  Registered way back in 1886 and still producing whisky to this day in the same spot.  The tour was free wich also caught our attention being we were on limited funds and there was still so much more to see.  We made it just in time for the last tour to start we walked into a lobby full of glass cases and pictures.  We snapped some pictures and looked around untill our tour guide called us together.  A short bus ride later and we were at the begining of our tour.  The cave spring, Jacks office that includes the safe were he broke his foot wich later led to his death, Thier charcoal making process and then into the distillery where we could not take pictures in fact all electronics had to be turned off.  We ended up in one of the storage houses where there were several levels of barrels containing old number 7 just not yet ready to be bottled.  After ending up back where we started we were served refreshments took some more pics and then headed out and we were now on our way to Atlanta.
