Diggers: Kentucky Bourbon Mystery Item REVEALED

10336619_10152383528921005_9038088568941509112_nIt’s that uncanny ROUNDNESS in the hole that sends KG & Ringy into a digging frenzy. However, this week’s mystery find is a little different. On Diggers: Kentucky Bourbon KG and Ringy are in the Bluegrass State of Kentucky, searching for artifacts from the two oldest bourbon distilleries in the country. They’re hoping to find some bourbon nectar, hidden bottles left behind by workers and residents on the distillery’s land. Their first stop is the Marker’s Mark distillery in Loretto, which has been turning out the “nobody’s child” of liquor since 1805. But this week’s mystery item comes from their second stop on the bourbon trail, the Buffalo Terrace distillery in Frankfort.



The Buffalo Terrace distillery was the only distillery allowed to operate during the Prohibition period, and there’s said to be an extremely rare case of bourbon lost somewhere beneath the surface of the massive complex. This week’s mystery item, though, is another relic left behind by passer-by’s of the distillery. Tim Saylor gets a major hit that sends his detector (and Tim) screaming. After brushing away the dirt on a large, round object, a small flag is revealed on a 1930’s bicycle bell. The classic bicycle bell dates back to 1877, but this enameled hand bell is a new and exciting find for the Diggers crew.

    These guys are doing really interesting stuff but they are way to loud and way to excited, it would be much more enjoyable to watch without all the juvenile reactions to finding artifacts. Come on man tone things down a bit and the show would be more enjoyable to watch.

    I like the show OK but can hardly watch it, I am an Avid digger myself but no one I know act like these two clowns and we certainly do not use the word Nectar in every sentence. Surely this is all an act that can be toned down a bit to display TH’ers with some dignity.

    Those guys are idiots if they know what is in each hole before they pull it out of the hole. Everything must be planted in the holes. Very bad show even if they get good or great rating.

    The premise of this show was promising, but the “characters” are too annoying to watch and their finds are too insignificant. I’ve watched several of these, and was particularly disappointed in the BTK episode. One of the idiots kept talking about finding Billy’s pistol. Now why would they expect to find his pistol? Like he dropped it and no one would pick it up for years until it was covered in several inches of soil?

    The build up, the attempts to link every scrap of junk to some famous event or imply, over and over and over, that they belong to one specific person when hundreds of people have been through a place, is frustrating to watch.

    It might be more interesting if they were serious about their work, and if they actually found something significant, or at least didn’t over play the significance of what they did find.

    And cut the stupid second language. It’s like they’re a couple of preteen girls trying to start a cool new phrase by using it every possible time they can. Reminds me of a movie. And you guys keep reminding the audience what it means, so we’ll buy into the new phrase. Also annoying.

    Sorry, it doesn’t work. Nothing in the show works. Not the jumping up and down, not the running into each others arms over a five dollar coin, not the juvenile second language, not the constant build up only to find scraps worth next to nothing, certainly not worth the trip. They make a living at this? Not without this show.

    So, I never write to a network about a show, I just don’t watch it. But I was so irritated by Diggers over several episodes over the last season or two when they went some place potentially cool but just completely squandered the potential that I just had to find some place on your website to let someone know.

    I like the personalities of the the diggers, its interesting sometimes sad that they don’t get what they were looking for. I have a question though when they dig on private property what arrangements do they make with the owners? who gets the artifacts/coins/etc I would appreciate some info on this. thanks!

    The show was promising, but the “characters” are too annoying to watch. I enjoy the hobby and wish someone would do a real show with metal detecting.

    Why do these two guys have to act like two freaking idiots. The show would be so much better without this crap.
