I was driving through the area and, being an avid liquor consumer, I thought I'd get a taste of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. This particular distillery, Jim Beam, is located just a few minutes off of Interstate 65 which connects Louisville and Nashville. The facility is free to visit. However, I paid $5 for a bottling tour that last about... More

We had a great time on our tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and funny. We learned a lot about the history of the products, and the manufacturing process. There is a great little restaurant and a beautiful big gift shop on the premises. The tasting room, of course, was awesome!

I had no idea about distilling, etc....although I do enjoy whiskey! The tour was very interesting and FUN! I enjoyed the interactive portion of the tour...I "bottled" my own Knob Creek!...more or less :) The end of the tour was neat, we were able to taste the variety of whiskeys, not sure which is my fave now! I'm glad to... More

The grounds, with red buildings, are inviting and very well-kept. After boarding the shuttle, we found our guide to be very friendly, as she thoroughly explained in-detail the process of bourbon-making. It was truly a hands-on experience! The automated bottling and labeling procedure was fascinating! When it was time for tasting, we were each given a card to insert in... More

We saw a billboard while traveling & decided to stop. It was late in the day & we had already missed the last tour. The staff was very friendly & we were able to walk around the property & see a lot of displays. We did learn a lot from them. It is a beautiful place to visit. Would love... More

Jim Beam was the last stop on our completion of the Bourbon Trail. We have the T-Shirt and completion stamped passport to prove it. This was by far the worst tour on the trail. Don't get me wrong, the grounds and the gift shop are amazing and top of the line. The tour involved a walk to their barrel house... More

I was not sure what to expect with some of the reviews I read, but it was a neat experience. During the summer months, it is a hit or miss if production is going on. For Jim Beam, they were not producing. But the company knew that many people wanted to see how it's made. What the company offered in... More

We did a few other distillery tours while we were in the area- I really hate having to give them just an average rating, but in comparison to the other tours, it's all I can honestly give them. The tasting room is very impersonal compared to others, the guide, while very friendly, seemed to be going by a script ,... More

We stopped here, however, the tours were sold out and we couldn't wait 2 hours for the next available tour. There were some exhibits that we could see for free and it was quite interesting to learn the history of Jim Beam and how the oak barrels are made They have a nice gift shop
