Bravo offers some great small batch bourbons but I wanted to make sure we had the latest. Bourbon sales have increased by 40% in the last 5 years and our guests know many of the small batch bourbon distilleries, so I decided it was time for another tour of the Bourbon Trail. I drafted two bourbon aficionados to take the tour with me, my wife Whitney, who grew up in Tennessee, and Dean MacVicar, who has great palate for whiskeys and his wife Linda, our navigator extraordinaire.
The drive to Louisville is about five and a half hours so we decided to stop for brunch at Milktooth Restaurant in Indianapolis. This building is a former gas station converted into an amazing breakfast and lunch restaurant. I had met the chef at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic. He was selected as one of their top 10 Best New Chefs. Bon Appetit also named Milktooth as one of the 20 Best New Restaurants in the country and they are only open for breakfast and lunch. It was amazing!
