The tour was great. We took it a while back. Its exciting and informative plus the bourbon balls are great!! My only thought...its the only distillery which charges $5.00 for their tour of all the distilleries visited in the area.

Very beautiful drive up to the distillery. A lot of horses and barns to see. Buildings on the tour very old and nice to see. Tour was very good. Just make sure your headset works before you start the tour or you won't hear what the guide is saying. Beautiful gift shop and tasting room. Wish I could have fit... More

Taste the bourbon, and learn the story of it's making. This historic brewery of bourbon houses a museum and tasting room. The drive there is one of the finest in the state, so take it all in. Along the way, you will pass fenced pastures and magnificent thoroughbreds.

Like stepping back in time. Excellent facility, knowledgeable tour guides, authentic buildings and the beautiful Bluegrass Kentucky setting. A must do activity. The Bourbon wasn't bad either!! Nice guided tasting opportunity.

Another stop on the Bourbon Trail. This one was notable for pairing their bourbon with various bourbon Chocolate... a very nice touch after many, many distillery tours and tastings.

Visiting this site during there slow time of the year was a huge plus. From the drive to the distillery to the tour, all was beautiful, interesting & fun. The tasting at the end helped enhance my enjoyment of bourbon.

Tour was good, but definitely a different atmosphere than some of the other distilleries we visited. They have two products to chose from (soon to be three.), not really to my liking. On the Bourbon Trail.

Located in beautiful horse country which makes for a beautiful drive to Woodford. New visitor center was very welcoming. Great history tour of the grounds and buildings. Great learning experience with our tour guide. Go in the off season when the crowds are less than busy months. Glad I went.
