The team over at Small Batch Apparel wants to make sure you’re properly outfitted for an entire season of horse racing.  You may know Small Batch Apparel better as Cash Robinson Clothing.  Think of Small Batch Apparel as Cash Robinson Clothing 2.0, a new name but the same great quality and an expanded line up of goods.  In conjunction with the launch of the revamped brand and the Kentucky Derby, the guys want to give you a chance to win one of their brand new Paddock Polos in Oxford Yellow and a Bourbon Barrel Head Hat in Stone.

Woodford Reserve Distillery

Bourbon country is only a short day trip away from Indianapolis so Mrs. GLP and I took advantage of our proximity last weekend and ventured down to three distilleries.  The major distilleries are split into two groups, with half about an hour south of Louisville and the other half about an hour east of Louisville.  We headed off east to visit Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and Wild Turkey, planning to visit the others on a future weekend.  Each tour was similar, delving into bourbon production and the history of the distillery, yet each one was different enough to not feel like we were repeating the same tour over and over.
