Be aware that no samples can be tasted until after 1PM on Sundays. The cost was around $10 each. We started by watching... More

We didn't do the tour at this location; just got our stamp. The area surrounding is not great and there is little available parking. There is a security guard for the lot. I suggest parking in their lot. We saved this for the end of the day because we knew we didn't want to tour. They do have a nice... More

The Tour was amazing and very informative on brewing and distilling. Abby was the best tour guides we have ever had on a distillery tour. If you like beer and Bourbon you need to take to time and see this place.

I enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about brewing and distilling. My tour guide was very knowledgeable. The brew master also helped with the tasting of ale and answered questions. I recommend this stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

Alltech is the parent company. The sign on the building actually reads Town Branch Bourbon. The Irish owner brews beer in Kentucky in German equipment! Pretty cool and pretty high tech. Our guide was a young fellow but he knew his stuff and made sure all of our questions were answered. We first watched a video about the owner and... More

We arrived around 430 due to traffic and discovered that we missed the last tour of the day. The visitor center workers were awesome! We explained our situation and they were understanding and offered to give us a brief tour and let us taste all of their beer. They were so nice and the beer tasting was great! Our bartender...

During 2016 graduation for University of Kentucky had time to only do one other thing and here's where I ended up, and I'm happy I did.
