Old Taylor Distillery's owners resurrecting its castle, gardens

"Most whiskey plants of the last century looked something like a sawmill," Carson wrote. "Colonel built pergolas and pools. He had turrets, too. The Old Taylor Distillery on Glenn's Creek, near Frankfort, looked like a medieval castle with thick stone walls, arched windows, red slate roof, towers and crenellated battlements, stone bridges, a sundial and sunken rose garden
