I took the $10 tour on a Saturday, which I reserved ahead of time on their website. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Shelby, our excellent tour guide, took us through a smaller, craft version of the bourbon process to explain production (and asked us to participate). Then, we went into the major buildings with the massive modes of production. The tour... More

Organized and quick this tour of the bourbon giant starts off by taking a quick ride in a custom bourbon bus. with seats made of barrel staves and James Beams name burned into the wall the bus alone is something of note to see. Standard $10 distillery tour ends in neat tasting room where you are provided with a chip... More

The Jim Beam tour is a very educational stop along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Included is a brief history of the Beam family, the site of distilation and bourbon in general. There is a tasting and gift shop at the end of the tour.

Excellent visit to Jim Beam. Did not take the tour, but did walk the grounds--very nice and well cared for. Great shop as well as a restaurant on property where they had pulled pork and other great items using Jim Beam grilling products. Would definitely go back!!

Make no mistake, Jim Beam Distillery is a beauty. It's almost too nice. Everything is meticulously placed and laid out. The marketing and merchandising is pristine. What's missing is personality found at the smaller guys like Willett and Bulleit. I'm certainly a fan of technology, but was even a little put off by the automated pouring machines in the sampling...

Educational tour not only about the distillery but about American history too. Tasting room was a fun way to end the visit! Would not recommend for young children. Friendly tour guides!

One of the stops on the bourbon trail. There are paid tours and free walking tours. We took the free walking tour which was more than adequate for us. There is plenty of information posted to learn about the history and distilling process. When you go to the tastings, the system is del set up---I'd recommend sticking to the premium... More

Just a quick trip of 2 miles off of I-65 and into the beautiful rolling hills of the Jim Beam Distillery. We took the self guided tour and enjoyed the experience. Learned a lot about how the product is made, the barrels are wood fired and the multiple products in the tasting room were a treat to behold. The guided... More

This was a great fun tour. It lasted 90 min but you got to see a lot from the storage barrels to actual fermenting yeast. At the end of the tour, you only got to taste two drinks but you had a wide vAriety. There were opportunities during the tour where you got to handle bourbon and sneak an extra... More
