Tupelo, Mississippi, is an upbeat, happy city where people believe they can accomplish anything. Here, a young boy from the wrong side of the tracks with a $7.75 guitar grew up to be king. An unconquerable tribe called this place its homeland. A trail over 8,000 years in the making still beckons visitors to slow down and explore. In Tupelo, anything is possible.
Unlike wine, whiskey doesn’t age after bottling. Bourbon does its aging in the barrel. And each barrel is unique due to the variation in the grain of the oak, the level of charring inside, and its location and length of stay in the warehouse.
