Once you've gone through one distillery, there's no need to go through another. Buffalo Trace has the best gift shop, and allows sampling without taking a tour. Not only that but their samples were the best of all the distilleries we visited.

We paid up to $10 for other bourbon distillery tours, so this was a treat. The tour guide was a retired gentleman that was very personable. We got several samples including bourbon balls. Definitely worth the stop.

I recommend that you email in advance for a reservation to take the "hard hat" tour. The very knowledgeable guide will take you across the property and show you how bourbon is made from beginning to end. From where the grain is dropped off the truck, to the distilling process (you even get a taste of the "white dog", to the barrel house, you will see everything. For some reason Buffalo Trace distillery is not a part of the bourbon trail, but I thought it was more interesting than the "official" stops, and there was no charge for the tour! Very highly recommended.

Had a great afternoon at this distillery, very informative and interesting tour. Got to have a few samples at the end, and best of all it was FREE. If you get chance try the Four Roses tour also, it costs $5, but is worth every penny (cent).

Very interesting tour of old distillery. Tour is free. Gift shop has a large variety of items. I learned things that I never knew about distillery. The samples at the end of the tour are an added bonus. Tour was not only educational it was entertaining!
