“So very good!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

We started our Kentucky Bourbon Trail here..... These people sure know their history on Lexington and bourbon. They also know their manners, everyone wasn't just nice, they were and of this world nice. Sounds syrupy, I know, but go there and find out for yourself!!

“Amazing Setting to learn more about KY Brew & Bourbons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is a must see if you are interested in the brewing or distilling process - or if your are not the fact that the tour takes you thru the these beers and spirits being made and a chance to see a wonderful facility in progress.

The grounds and buildings are stunning, clean and beautiful.

I didn't know much about the process but the tour guides are excellent. They make the experience very interactive and answer all questions and encourage them. The tour is small enough you can actually hear the guide and not feel like you are being shuffled or lost in a huge group.

There are also great amounts of information in their brochures and plaques along the tour.

The grounds are pristine, beautiful architecture, clean, and the gift shop is amazing!

Definitely bring your camera their are many wonderful photo ops.

I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a true Lexington experience, if you are interested in bourbons or beers, or if you are just wanted a look at a small manufacturing plant.

Excellent on all levels - I would love to see them build a restaurant on the grounds, it was such a beautiful experience we didn't want to leave.

A purpose build Brewing and Distilling facility that is beautiful on the outside and the inside. Our guide was terrific and the tasting fun. Great gift shop for their "gear" and spirits. A must do in Lexington.

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

The tour I took was an amazing experience. The tour guide Scott was knowledgable and was able to answer random questions from the group about everything from the aging process to the source of the barrels and why there is such high demand for them. The small batch process was easy to understand and was explained in a very nice way with humor thrown in to keep the information lively. I will definitely suggest the tour to all of my colleagues that have the chance to visit Lexington.

“Great Tour, Great Tour Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

This was our last stop on the Bourbon Trail for the day and it was by far my favorite. Our tour guide Dylan was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. He even took the time to write down the two Gaelic phrases he used on the tour on the back of his cards. I thoroughly enjoyed the two tastings as well as the whole atmosphere. Wonderful experience!
