From now until Dec. 23, Woodford Reserve in Versailles, Ky., is offering a lovely holiday brunch Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Sundays 12:30 to 2 p.m. Chef-in-Residence Ouita Michel and her culinary team have created a bountiful holiday buffet full of Kentucky favorites and seasonal specialties, and you can take a tour of the distillery afterward to walk off some of the calories.
The buffet is only $25 per person, which seems like it must be some sort of loss-leader when you take a look at the menu:
