Many travel for beaches. Some travel for mountains, and others for architecture, art, or anonymity. And then there's me, and others of a similar ilk, who when we pick our next destination or pass through a new region, though we're happy to take in a museum or two, travel for local food and drinks. Food and wine trips have been well published, but I'm excited about a new breed of tripping planning - one based around cocktails and spirits. Know what I did for my 30th birthday in June? Went to Louisville and Central Kentucky, to learn and taste everything I could about the bourbon industry.
