It includes a lot of interesting interviews with local historians and distillers, and takes you through a good history of bourbon in Kentucky from its roots through the last few years. It flows pretty chronologically, touching on interesting topics throughout history - prohibition, the fire at Heaven Hill, brotherhood of competitors, etc. It has very interesting sections that flow together, but there's not much of a story arc or conclusion, and it felt more like watching historical snippets from distillery tours. Additionally, while it says it was release in 2018, it appears that much of the footage was shot a few years ago.
"No bourbon is better than another bourbon, some bourbons are just simply more expensive because less is produced. So be thoughtful of that when you're drinking it." - Jared Schubert. One of the most idiotic statements I've ever heard. How can this guy be part the bourbon industry??? Regardless, a very good show.
Been a bourbon drinker for years, found this in our current stay at home status and it is an exception film. Starts at the very beginning of whiskey in America, myth, legend, good times, prohibition, revival....really solid.
The trailer made this "documentary" seem more interesting that it actually was. I'd lean more toward a marketing piece than a documentary. There were a few decent parts, but overall I found it to be rather boring.
Worth the watch. Must say, as a bourbon lover, I found the documentary "Neat" to be an earlier and more robust version of this particular documentary. Nonetheless, they have their differences and I was not disappointed with the viewing.
