Such a beautiful place! The Jim Beam distillery site is a delight to visit. You can take a self-guided tour or guided tour, depending on how long you are able to stay. I took the free self-guided tour with tasting, because my time was limited. No disappointment! The grounds are lovely and well-manicured, so be sure to bring your camera.... More

We went for the distiller tour and it was informative and very interesting. I am not a Bourbon drinker so the final tasting part was not as enjoyable as the other people. I can only tell the 12yr one was more smooth than the 5yr. The "bottle your own Bourbon" was fun, although the only part I participated was washing... More

This was one of our many distillery stops on our Bourbon Trail trip. The grounds were absolutely beautiful!!! The best part was that since we were short on time and didn't have time for a tour, they offered a self-guided tour where you could just walk around the grounds and take a look and read about information about Jim Beam...

Coming from Australia, and worshipping Jim Beam, I planned this tour in the hope my dreams of visiting a bourbon Mecca would be realised... I was not dissapointed. The tour guide was very knowledgable and had the ability to capture the attention of this unruly group of travellers. The whole behind the scenes experience was brilliant and getting to meet... More

The tour of the huge facility (my 1st distillery tour) was interesting and enjoyable as we went through the entire process of making whiskey. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, courteous, humorous and answered all questions; we learned a lot about the process. Although the tour cost $10, I thought it was worth the money. I was a little disappointed... More

This is the first stop on the Bourbon trail ( who knew?) . From start to finish this is a 5 plus. The hands on tour, the tastings on the way. The fun tour guides and the most interesting things that I did not know. even made my own bottle! now nestled in my cabinet. I would do this again... More

Our first distillery on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The largest maker and distributor of bourbon in Kentucky, they offered an excellent tour. Lead by a knowledgeable guide, we toured the facility and learned about bourbon distilling from the beginning to the end process. The facility is clean and well laid out. A relatively easy walk to the parts of the... More

During our tour thru Bourbon country, was told this was a must-see. Well, we got there on a beautiful morning and anxiously walked to find the entrance to go on a tour and experience the tasting wonders of Jim Beam. Well, to our astonishment, there was a sign on the door "Closed from 11:30-1:30 - Employee Appreciation Lunch". Huh? There... More

Great tout on how bourbon is massed produced. Be prepared for a bit of easy walking. Lots to buy. You get 2 mini-shots at end of tour. It is interesting to compare to Woodfield Reserve, a boutique bourbon manufacturer.

Since we had done on other tours we opted to forgo the actual tour and go for the free self guided tour and got to taste two of the products. Between wife and I we actually tasted four. The tasting is automated where you select the product, place a card in the slot and press the button of the product.... More
