We aren't much for souvenirs, but sometimes we like to pick up interesting stuff we find along the way. One of my favorite shopping places is .. the Liquor Barn in Lexington, Kentucky. Last time we were there, I found a bottle of Virginia Gentleman Bourbon. It was distilled at the A. Smith Bowman distillery in Virginia. He was a second cousin, three times removed.
I was thrilled to find a bottle of Bowman Brothers, made at the same distillery. I haven't opened it yet, but the bottle is very special.You can barely make out an illustration of the Bowman Brothers - John, Isaac, Abraham and Joseph. All were important in Kentucky history. Joseph died at Vincennes during the revolution. Abraham, of course was my ancestor.
