A very large distillery amazing grounds. Matt was a great guide. The building that you tour seems to be a smaller set up then what the other distilleries show you. Not sure if it's newly built for the tour. The most other distilleries will have you sit down in a tasting room. Jim beam produes a great varieties of bourbon... More

Upon our arrival we were given the option of a self guided tour or a paid guided tour. Since we had already experienced a few distilleries, we opted for the self guided tour. Be sure to get your tasting tickets before you start out or you will have to return to get them, and we did. The buildings are artfully... More

This was an unexpected detour on our way from Nashville to Loiusville. We only had time for a walking tour which was free. Every educational and we were able to sample 2 drinks of our choice. The gift shop had some great items as well. We plan to come back some time soon.

The Stillhouse is located about 15 miles outside Bardstown and the road is easily accessible. We chose the self-guided tour, which is free of charge, and we were given tickets for two tastings each. (the longer tour is 90 minutes long - there is a fee for that extended tour). The self-guided tour allowed you to wonder the grounds at... More

It was OK. I enjoyed taking pictures of the property, but we did not spend $50 per person for the complete tour. We did spend $32 for 2 BBQ sandwiches, sodas & desert. That was enough. I preferered the Heaven Hill distillery tour that is similar to a "How It's Made" show and also includes a free tasting at the... More

This was our first stop on the bourbon trail. We took the self- tour and tasting. Some different bourbons than what you can get in our hometown. There were only two tastings per person, so the three of us chose different ones and shared. They had good variety in the gift shop. Wish we had waited to eat, because the... More

For such a large facility, the tour was excellent--hands-on throughout. We even got to put a bottle on the line and watch it go through the bottling process (we later purchased it. I purchased some bourbon vanilla--something we did not see in any of the other bourbon tours-- in the gift shop. We ate lunch at the smokehouse, although the... More

This was our first tour. The tour guide talked a little too fast which would have been find if this wasn't our first tour. The tour was very in depth on the whole process which was good for a first tour. The tour started on a nice bus. There is some walking but it was easy. We were able to... More

We were really impressed with the still house. While we didn't have time to do the 90 minute tour, we did the self tour and tasting. Very well maintained, clean, friendly people. We ate lunch at the smokehouse, good food, nice setting. We then did the tasting, you get two shots from one of several stations with a variety of... More
