Taylor Distillery

Taylor DistilleryOld Taylor Bourbon whiskey is produced in Frankfort, Kentucky by the Sazerac Company and was named for Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, the famous distiller. Actually, the premium brand Colonel E. H. Taylor is also produced. Colonel Taylor was born in Columbia, Kentucky in 1832 and made a career of distilling whiskey. Interestingly enough, Colonel Taylor was the grand-nephew of General Zachary Taylor of the Mexican-American War. Stamped on the flasks is the statement " General Taylor Never Surrenders"

Offutt-Cole Tavern

Offutt-Cole TavernThe Offut-Cole Tavern is located at the corner of Old Frankfort Pike and US-62 in Midway, Kentucky. The log portion of the structure dates to the 1780s and 1790s. Major John Lee, one of the early founders of Woodford County, resided in this tavern and developed it as such. He eventually leased the premises to John Kennedy and William Dailey and from there it became a stagecoach stop along the toll road from Lexington to Frankfort.
