A wonderful place, buy tickets in advance, and definitely online to make sure you get a tour! They sell out quick! A small brewery and distillery but well worth the visit! A great addition to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail!

Beautiful buildings surround you as the brewing process is explained to all. Learned so much and enjoyed the expertise of our guide, Robbie. Not much for little children but ours cooperated. Bought some great gifts to bring back to CT! Worth the price all around. You will need GPS to find it.

Good tour on the Bourbon Trail just at the edge of Lexington. Didn't realize these guys produced so much beer. Tastings of their bourbons and beer included on the tour. Worth adding to your Bourbon Trail stops.

A newer facility, very modern, pretty place with friendly Staff as well. Out tour guide did an excellent job explaining the details of brewing beer & distilling... More

Very interesting tour, this place actually distills and brews beer. You get 4 tokens for tasting with 13 options so choose wisely. Dale did a great job on the last tour of the day. Will come back again

I have visited this distillery/brewery several times since its inclusion on the Bourbon Trail, and have watched it grow to become a nice visit. Early on, if memory serves, we only had a chance to visit the distillery side of things. Then it seemed the tours were and either/or set-up where depending on the time of arrival, you could do...
