Their were four other couples with us on this trip and everyone agreed that this was the most fun because it was interactive. The tour was $10/person but worth every penny. Grant, our tour guide, was very friendly and informative. My husband did a personalized bottle of Knob Creek that he had engraved at the end of our tour. The... More

My husband and I visited Jim Beam during an anniversary trip. The tour is an hour and a half and costs $10 per person. That seems a bit high at first, but it is well worth the money. You get a very educational tour of the entire process. We got to wash out bottles on the assmebly line and put... More

As part of our self tour of the Bourbon trail this was on our list of places to visit. And I'm glad we did. The facility was everything you would expect and then some. The gift shop was packed with everything you would imagine. The tour guide and shittle bus driver were friendly and courteous. Our guide was very well... More

So much fun! I didn't have the highest expectations going into this, but my husband and I loved this tour! It was very interactive and I learned a ton of information. Our tour guide, Shelby (maybe Shelly), was very knowledgable and could answer any question. If you can only visit one distillery, pick Jim Beam!! (Way more fun than Makers!)... More

Honestly - neither the wife or I are Jim Beam drinkers. I wanted to swing by and give Jim Beam a "shot" since it's so close to Interstate 65. It ended up being the best tour we went on all weekend (sorry Maker's...you missed the "Mark" by quite a bit). The tour is 90 minutes and it costs $10. Our... More

Jim Beam Bourbon is No. 1 among bourbon drinkers yet they are always coming up with new tastes. Devil's Cut has quite the kick. Knob Creek is worth sampling. Their sampling station is quite the technological measurer.

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
