This was the best $ 10 that I've spent visiting an attraction. The visitor center and gift shop is a walk back in history. The tour is so interesting, it captivates your imagination as to how Bourbon and whiskey, in general, is made. The highlight was being able to bottle your own Bourbon. We were lucky in bottling a single... More

Patrick gave us an excellent tour. It was fun and informative. Never a dull moment. I didn't realize it was such a big operation. I was very impressed with the production layout. The tour bus was cute although it didn't take us far as the tour was 95% walking. My only complaint is we were only allowed two 1/2 oz... More

They have added the tour experience since we visited last & it was great. Erica guided us through the process from grinding the grain to bottling. It was very informative & interesting. They offer some really cool stuff in the gift shop. I highly recommend the candles. I am not much of a drinker but the tasting was a fun... More

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
