We were lucky enough to find Mint Julep Tours and get reservations for the VIP tour of the Jim Beam Distillery. We spent several hours here, with Hunter being our tour guide for the day. He was very engaging and knowledgeable and really added to the experience. We sampled bourbon right from the barrel and even had the opportunity to... More

A super place to visit even if you don't take the tour. The gift shop is on two floor and I just loved the STILL elevator. Prices are $$$ but the staff is full of interesting facts and are really very friendly.

October 13, 2014 - While visiting Louisville for the Belle of Louisville's 100th anniversary celebration, we drove to the Jim Beam Distillery for a tour and tasting. It is only about 30 minutes from Louisville and is well worth the drive. Since we brought our own sandwiches, we were able to sit out on the deck of the small restaurant... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Jim Beam distillery! The guided tour is $10/person and is about 1 1/2-2 hrs. long and includes 2 bourbon samples per person. Michelle was our guide and she was very knowledgeable, personable and made sure we were all having a good time! It's obvious that she and many of the employees there enjoy... More

We came here after touring Makers Mark. The ground are very pretty and the people very nice. The take you on a bus to start the tour. I was disappointed in the tour in that its a lab distillery, not the actual one. You learn a lot, but it feels staged and orchestrated. You end up at the packing line... More

Tours and tastings sell out so book in advance if at all possible. Can go on self guided tour and just purchase tasting tickets, but sells out fast. Each ticket also gets entered in daily drawings and we won 2 glasses, magnet, cards and barrel plug. Kids loved the live music and bbq, though not sure it is always available... More

In town for a trade show and had a few hours to spare so I decided to venture out of Louisville... Boy was that a great decision! What an amazing place... So interesting!! Knob Creek is my favorite brand of Bourbon so I was thrilled that we could take a tour. The price of the tour was very little for... More

Although not a bourbon drinker I was curious to see how this product was manufactured. There are two tours available: a guided 2-hour tour for $10 and a self guided tour for free. Both tours entail a bourbon tasting. We chose the self guided tour for time constraints. The process of making bourbon is an interesting one and well presented.... More

OK - so we arrived here late so we only had the opportunity to do the self guided tour and tasting... but it was free so that was great. The facilities were SO clean and grounds were very pretty. Kentucky is so beautiful. If we do the trail again, we might just start here to really experience the entire place.... More

We were really pleased with this stop on the KY Bourbon Trail. It was probably in our top 3 favorite tours of the 8 plus 3 other non-trail distilleries we've done. The grounds are really pretty when it's a nice time of year (we went in May). The only negative is that you only get 2 samples, and they have... More
