Took this tour & was pleasantly surprised since it was our 7th on 'the bourbon trail' in 3 days. What made this one different was they use a 'craft'/small batch area to educate you on the process, then move you into the larger more industrial area to see the larger operation that produces 50% of the bourbon made in the...

I was pleasantly surprised with the tour,which turned out to be one of the best and most comprehensive on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. My wife and I visited on 4/8/14. With the massive size and popularity of Jim Beam, I expected the tour to be like a cattle call with a "touristy" presentation. That is not the case at all.... More

Very pleasantly surprised by the fun and interactive tour (adding ingredients, filling a barrel, filling your own bottle, etc.) ... and we are not even bourbon drinkers. Now we know a lot more about bourbon and have even found a few that we like -- since we are not seasoned bourbon drinkers we lean toward the flavor-infused types and recommend... More

Blocky & Ed North America Adventure. We went to the Jim Beam American Still house in the 27 March and were very impressed. Only $10 to get in a 1.5 hour tour. Best money ever spent. We had Erica as our tour guide. She would have been the most informative tour guide I have ever listen to. Well worth seeing.

First visit to Jim Beam distillery, only second distillery tour ever, worth every penny of the $10 cost. Got to try some 9 year Knob Creek right out of the barrel, 2 tastings after the tour and got to keep the glass too...what a deal! Jennifer was an awesome tour guide, energetic, informative and a great person along the way.... More

Loved my trip to Jim Beam. The tasting experience is really cool. Wish I had done a tour. Great scenes of the Kentucky countryside.

Recently visited the Jim Beam stillhouse and took the guided tour which lasted 90 minutes. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys learning about how an item is produced. It is not often anymore during these tours that one can actually see the real process instead of a simulation. Our tour guide was very informative and highly entertaining... More

I booked the Jim Beam Stillhouse tour for me and my mister while passing through Kentucky, honestly thinking he would enjoy it much more than I would. Boy was I wrong - the entire experience was awesome! The website recommended making reservations for the tour and getting there early, so that's exactly what we did and we were included in... More

Impressive grounds. Really makes an impression from the moment you drive in until you walk through the doors of the beautiful two-story gift shop center, which doubles as a place to hang out to wait for your tour to start. Get there early. We got there later in the day on a Saturday and the last tour was quickly selling... More
