A Sneak Peak at Jim Beam's New Visitors' Center

I previously visited the Jim Beam distillery in Kentucky and got a great in-depth tour of the facilities (read about it here), but until recently regular tourists have only had a pretty mediocre visitor's experience. They didn't get to see the actual distillery as it's a very industrial workplace. 

Now they're greatly expanding the visitors' center, with a set of new outdoor displays as to the history and process of making Jim Beam, plus a big new building. Tourists will also take a shuttle and get to go to the bottling line - which I saw and wrote about before and it's pretty amazing, even if you've seen 30 other bottling lines. 

Below are some pictures of the new exhibits.
