The new visitor's center, distillery tour, and technology upgrades are entertaining to experience. The "gotcha" immersion experience allowing guests to clean and then purchase their own Knob Creek bottle while on the tour was enough to get me, I purchased a take home when I was not expecting to. The after tour tasting experience is well organized with new technology... More

Great time. Tour was fun. We have done a few beer/burbon tours but this was the only tour you got to watch them bottle the burbon. Very cool. Spent a few hours here and it was very enjoyable.

What a wonderful tour. They have built a miniiature scale of the whole process from grain to bottle that you go to first and then you go on the tour of the whole distillery in life size. You get to make your own bottle with your name on the label and thumb print in wax if you want to. We... More

We had such a good time here! The tour was very informative. Our guide Michele was very friendly and knows her stuff!! Spend the $10.00 and take the full tour around the 400 acre distillery by bus and stop to see the storage buildings filled with thousands of barrels, see where the 18 different varieties are "cooked", have a chance...

The new changes suck. Overpriced and not what the old tour was. All about the money. Lost treasure. My family is from the area and knew the beam family. Booker would not be happy.

We visited a few distilleries while in Kentucky. The property is nice to walk around on and there are buildings and information provided about the Jim Bean legacy and general distilling information. We stayed for a tasting, which was nice. We were able to try bourbons that are not sold in our state.

We have been on other distillery tours and the guide we had here was not very good. It was "just a job" to her. When my husband would ask a question her response was almost always, "I'm going to talk about that in just a minute," (and then never talk about it) or "I already talked about that." Jeez, sorry...

Stopped by the Jim Beam Stillhouse in Clermont, Ky. for the tour of the facility. Paid to take the tour and it was well worth it. Great young man who took our group on the tour and taught us lots about the bourbon making process. Last stop on the tour was the tasting room, Each person was given a nice... More

Even though we are not bourbon drinkers this was a great stop! We enjoyed learning the history of the business and the details of how the bourbon is made. Very impressive operation. Beautiful location and fun!
