The tour is very information and fun along the way. We loved hearing about the history, seeing the architecture and participating in the grain to glass process as well as tasting bourbon along it's journey to the final product. The $10 includes the 90 minute tour, a souvenir glass (7.95 value) and two decent sized pours of your choice including... More

This tour is EXCELLENT. My husband and I like to do these kids of guided tours when we travel, so we have done plenty. This was the best tour we've ever done, hands down. It is only $10 per person, the tour is 90 minutes and does require some walking but it's not challenging at all. You get to see... More

The Jim Beam tour was awesome. We did 6 distillery tours, and this one was the coolest, but also one of the most touristy. I personally liked their presentation and exhibit based tour.

A fun way to spend 2 hours in Kentucky. The distilling process was well explained, just a shame the tasting is not very personal, but you get a free glass. Overall, no complaints!

Cool distillery and great tour! Our guide Josh was awesome! best part was informal (and optional) cask strength tasting. Best product we had out of the 11 distilleries visited!! Fun bottling/waxing and fingerprinting your own bottle for purchase! Tasting was done very modernly and a lot of product to chose from....most of it awesome!

An outstanding tourist attraction, especially for bourbon fans. There are several buildings, each explaining a part of the process. Starting from sourcing the grains, to a barrel making demonstration by an employee of the stave company. The entire distilling process is explained. There is a store for product purchases. Also Fred"s Smokehouse on site has reasonably priced food, ice cream... More

The tour is well worth the ten dollar price. Theresa was very knowledgeable about the history and the making process. She easily answered all questions the group came up with. So much fun! The tour ends at the tasting room where you get two samples. And making your own bottle of Knob Creek was a blast. Highly recommended!

Jim Beam is an American legend and a household name for a reason. And the Stillhouse is where it all began. It's a fantastic way to spend a morning or afternoon for both the family and the alcohol connisour. There are three areas you can spend time in and they are the free self guided tour, the paid tour, and... More

Went on this tour for my birthday and had the best time! Learned about the history and process of making bourbon. Even got to taste some! Can't wait for my kids to get old enough to take them.
