Woodford distillery's past comes to light with archaeology dig

One of Kentucky early distillers, Oscar Pepper, is making history again, this time about what early farm life was like in the Bluegrass. Brown-Forman owns the Woodford Reserve Distillery near Versailles, on the site of the original Pepper distillery. Late this summer, archaeologists began excavating around the 1812 log cabin built by Elijah Pepper on a hill above Glenn's Creek, where the first distillery and grist mill were built.
