Five-Story-Tall Whiskey Bottle

You really have to see the bottle from across the street to appreciate the size of it.

Giant Bourbon Bottle Pouring Into A Glass

The latest in a bevy of oversized paraphernalia near downtown Louisville, the newly opened Evan Williams Bourbon Experience allows visitors to experience an in-house working distillery a la 1783, and enjoy a bourbon tasting. Tour concludes in obligatory gift shop where you can buy anything to fit your bourbony desires.

Oh, and don't forget the photo-op nirvana of the giant fountain fashioned into a bourbon bottle filling an Evan Williams glass. You can walk right up to it. Tour requires a fee, but you can get great photos of the Byron bottle fountain from outside.
