The Making of a Whiskey Ghost Town

Whiskey Lore show

Summary: One of the great centers of the bourbon industry in the late 1800's started with humble beginnings in the deep woods of Kentucky near present day Pottinger's Creek. But drive around the area today and you would hardly know that this place was once the home of upwards of nine distilleries - selling whiskey from Boston, Massachusetts to San Francisco, California. This is the origin story of New Hope, Kentucky and the surrounding area.
