Stunning location, loved learning about this particular business and how the bourbon is made there and has been for many years. Harry was our guide and he was very informative, funny and easy going. The grounds are stunning.

The tour is still as great as in the past with a tour of where the bourbon is made as well as going through the rick houses to see the barrels aging. The change is with the building hosting the tastings. The updates are great! Thanks for a great tour!

This is a very popular tour so get there early or make online advanced reservations. It is one of the higher priced Distillery tours but very informative. Stacy was our tour guide and she did a really great job. As we waited on our tour, they had a restaurant to eat at - food was ok, but pricey. Very nice... More

The grounds were beautiful and the tasting room. The interning part of this was the mash was stored in wood containers. Had a great time but the your needs to be shorter

We took several family members who don't live in KY and had Rebecca as our tour guide. We've toured many distilleries & wineries- and Rebecca is one of the best tour guides we've ever had. She's fantastic-- funny, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and brimming with southern hospitality. She expertly taught us the right way to taste bourbon. The distillery itself is gorgeous.... More

I have been to so many wineries and distilleries I have lost count. I know its over 200. But the drive up to this distilleries is #1. Napa Valley has nothing on this setting. I love their bourbon's, especially the Double Oaked. Did not do a tour, I am toured out but the tasting was very nice.

I have toured here twice and really enjoyed my visits. (July 2016 and January 2017). I've been to 12 distilleries, some of them multiple times, and I think this is one of the prettiest distilleries. The tours were informative and my January 2017 guide, Tommy, was great! The tasting at the end was fantastic - I loved the Double Oaked.... More

I was unhappy with this location because they didn't have an option for a tasting that did not involve going on the tour. Not everyone can do a lot of walking. I did have lunch at this location. The cafe has a wonderful menu. You did not see this at the other distilleries. I could see a wedding reception at... More

This was a good first stop of the Bourbon Trail. It's very popular and gets busy early so I'd recommend getting their earlier in the day. Tours book up fast; if you go after 12 pm you may not get a tour. They do not take reservations for regular tours but do for corn to cork and other options but... More

Our tour guide was quite laid back and was able to give all the info needed. They only have two versions included in the tasting after the tour. The bottling line was quite small, amazingly so. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. Driving past the horse farms to get there was a nice bonus.
