Another stop on the bourbon trail. Fortunately for me, I am a huge Jim Beam fan. $10 for a 1 1/2 hour tour. Guides were informative, witty, and genuinely enjoyed their jobs. 1 of the best stops on the trail so far

The Beams have it down to an art form. I'm not a big Beam fan for bourbon--- but I'd bring people here for the entertainment feature. My next pets will be named after a Beam.

We had a wonderful guide I believe her name was Theresa. She made everyone laugh and was quite the comedian. This was very worth the $10. Even though I am not a bourbon drinker, it was very interesting hearing about how it was made and the history. Everyone should take the time to come see this distillery. The smoke house... More

Visited the Jim Beam distillery on a Sunday (yes it's open) and had a very informative your for $10. I've been on several Bourbon tours and this one showed each step of the process. You can make your own Knob Creek bottle and the tasting room was very fun. You get 2 credits and get to pick from any of... More

Our guide was very informative but very scripted. Cost was $10 per person but included tasting of one ounce at the end. The tour lasted about 90 minutes and was very interesting. Not sure that I would do this tour again, however the highlight was that you were able to wash out your own bottle with their product, and then... More

The tour is well worth the money. Our happy guide on Thursday afternoon, last tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned about the distillation process, history, oak barrels, bottling etc. We bottled our very own bourbon and put our pinkies on the waxed seal for a personal bourbon souvenir. First rate company, facility and guide. This state could be... More

As a Maker's Mark ambassador/fan I am not usually impressed with the competition (although I do enjoy Knob Creek). But, I have to admit that JB has done it right! I visited back in 2005 before the current improvements and was not impressed with their presentation. This visit - yesterday, was terrific. The tour was well done and very informative... More

Arrived as it began to rain, but the rain did NOT dampen the sense of welcome extended by the family at Jim Beam American Stillhouse. Steeped in Kentucky bourbon tradition, the tour brings you knowledge and appreciation for the history of America's home grown liquor! Keep your eyes open, Fred Noe (7th generation Master Distiller) can occasionally be seen on... More
