Coming from Australia, and worshipping Jim Beam, I planned this tour in the hope my dreams of visiting a bourbon Mecca would be realised... I was not dissapointed. The tour guide was very knowledgable and had the ability to capture the attention of this unruly group of travellers. The whole behind the scenes experience was brilliant and getting to meet... More

The tour of the huge facility (my 1st distillery tour) was interesting and enjoyable as we went through the entire process of making whiskey. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, courteous, humorous and answered all questions; we learned a lot about the process. Although the tour cost $10, I thought it was worth the money. I was a little disappointed... More

This is the first stop on the Bourbon trail ( who knew?) . From start to finish this is a 5 plus. The hands on tour, the tastings on the way. The fun tour guides and the most interesting things that I did not know. even made my own bottle! now nestled in my cabinet. I would do this again... More

Our first distillery on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The largest maker and distributor of bourbon in Kentucky, they offered an excellent tour. Lead by a knowledgeable guide, we toured the facility and learned about bourbon distilling from the beginning to the end process. The facility is clean and well laid out. A relatively easy walk to the parts of the... More

During our tour thru Bourbon country, was told this was a must-see. Well, we got there on a beautiful morning and anxiously walked to find the entrance to go on a tour and experience the tasting wonders of Jim Beam. Well, to our astonishment, there was a sign on the door "Closed from 11:30-1:30 - Employee Appreciation Lunch". Huh? There... More

Great tout on how bourbon is massed produced. Be prepared for a bit of easy walking. Lots to buy. You get 2 mini-shots at end of tour. It is interesting to compare to Woodfield Reserve, a boutique bourbon manufacturer.

Since we had done on other tours we opted to forgo the actual tour and go for the free self guided tour and got to taste two of the products. Between wife and I we actually tasted four. The tasting is automated where you select the product, place a card in the slot and press the button of the product.... More

We stopped here on our way home from Nashville, and it was great. The premises were spotless and very picturesque and the staff were really nice and friendly. The tour was only 10 bucks and well worth it .. The best part was bottling your own bourbon and getting the bottle etched with our name on it ($55) The small... More

The tour was very informative. Our guide was entertaining. Most the people in our group made their own bottle of Knob Creek. I didn't, as I'm not a big fan or Bourbon, but for those that are it would be a really cool gift or souvenir. The food at the cafe was good but in my opinion a little high... More

The tour was enjoyable with our guide, Selena. The tour has interactive parts like pouring grain in the mash and the marketing ploy of bottling your own Knob Creek ( which is a good idea). The tasting was different with the cards inserted into a dispensing station for your choice of 2 samples of the line of Jim Bean products.... More
