KET to Air Nunn Center's Bourbon Documentary

Published: Jun 3, 2011

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 3, 2011) − More than 200 years of bourbon making history is the subject of a new documentary coming to KET (Kentucky Educational Television). "Quest for the Perfect Bourbon: Voices of Buffalo Trace," created by the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries, will take viewers on a journey through time at Kentucky's Buffalo Trace Distillery.

 

"Quest for the Perfect Bourbon" will first be featured on KETKY and KET2 Monday, June 6. It will air on KETKY (Insight Cable Channel 192) beginning at 9 p.m. EDT, and on KET2 (Insight Cable Channel 15) beginning at 10:30 p.m. EDT.

 

For more than two years, Doug Boyd who oversees the Nunn Center, has been working with director and producer Joanna Hay and interviewer Tom Troland to capture the stories of the people of Buffalo Trace Distillery to serve as a virtual time capsule for future generations.

 

The "Quest for the Perfect Bourbon" project is a compilation of interviews with the people and stories of the Buffalo Trace Distillery family, such as Master Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee, and descendants of iconic figures such as Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr., Colonel Albert B. Blanton and Pappy Van Winkle. All the video interviews featured in "Quest for the Perfect Bourbon" are housed on the Nunn Center website, available at: http://www.nunncenter.org/buffalotrace/.

 

To see a preview of "Quest for the Perfect Bourbon," visit the project website at www.nunncenter.org/buffalotrace/quest/.  

 

Viewers can catch the bourbon documentary at least five more times between June 5 and July 30 on KET, KET2 and KETKY. For a listing of all air dates for "Quest for the Perfect Bourbon," visit KET online at: www.ket.org/tvschedules/episode.php?nola=KQBOU+000000.

 

UK Libraries’ Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History is internationally recognized for its outstanding collection of nearly 8,000 oral history interviews. The number of interviews available online continues to grow, providing greater access to the collection. Topics are wide-ranging from Appalachia, politics, veterans’ stories, as well as documenting important Kentucky industries such as the horse, coal and bourbon industries. To learn more about the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, visit the center online at www.nunncenter.org or www.uky.edu/libraries/nunncenter.
