What a great place to stop en route to destinations south! Lots of room to walk around and lots of stuff to read about, even if you don't do the formal tour. Stretch your legs, learn about bourbon, and (if you're not driving!) sample the wares. Stopped here with kids (9 & 11) who enjoyed toddling around the grounds a... More

I am not in to hard liquor at all but wow was this visit to Jim Beam ever fun! With the right group of friends and some spare time, you can enjoy yourself! We visited on Marc 20 2015. We had missed the morning guided tour so decided to tour on our own. We checked out everything the grounds had... More

We did an early paid tour as our first stop on the Bourbon Trail. The tour is extensive, lasting 90 minutes and showing you various parts of the distillery. Everyone gets to rinse and fill their own bottle of Knob Creek and help seal it with black wax (and can purchase it to take home). The tasting room was also... More

I am not a bourbon drinker so I was a bit skeptical. Since we were driving through we decided we had to do it. I am so glad we did! It was an awesome experience. The tour lasted an 1 1/2hour ($10pp). Knowledgable tour guide. We received free glasses & "made" our own bottle of bourbon ($$) that we sealed... More

Wonderful tour! The tour is about 90 min! They take you through every portion of the distilling process. You even get to clean your own bottle and watch it go through the filling process. When it is done they seal the top with wax and you can put your fingerprint on the top! Very informative and Fun, yes they do... More

The grounds here are beautiful. You can either do a self guided tour or a guided tour. We opted to do a self guided tour and just strolled around and explored. They had a very nice tasting room. The store has an extensive collection of merchandise.

They offer two different tours. One is free where your on your own the other is $10 and is a guided tour that is a little more elaborate and ends with a sampling experience. They also offer the chance to pick a bottle off the line during the tour watch it get filled and take it home after the tour... More

We visited Jim Beam on a Saturday morning in late March. The tour was lengthy (1.5 hours) but good. I was amazed at the production that came out of that facility. Although it was quite large, it still seems small for how much they produce. The tour was informative but the young guy they had leading it was pretty wooden... More

We really enjoyed learning about the making of Jim Beam Bourbon. Our tour guide was engaging and knowledgeable. We were able to watch the bottling and my husband even participated in cleaning a bottle by hand, watching his bottle fill with bourbon, and purchasing it to take home. The gift shop had great items from shot glasses to clothing, and... More

It was a great tour. Interesting, informative and fun. My husband was very proud to bottled up his own bourbon and at the end of the tour we could taste 2 bourbon each. It was so good :-)
