Our guide was delightful! He answered questions like a scientific expert, although he told me he had no science background. This was a guide that truly enjoyed his... More

Woodford seems to be one of the most 'corporate' in its approach. The buildings and grounds are attractive. The gift shop focuses on the Kentucky Derby sponsorship, with some nice, unique bottles. Parking can be hard to find, but they have guides directing cars to help you get parked. The route to Woodford takes you past some gorgeous horse farms... More

Great tour, tour guide is very good at his job, the smells in the distilling and storage and bottling places are the best smells ever created. The tasting was great, Here is wren I will review the woodford reserve distillery restaurant in the Louisville airport, don't go there, the bourbon pour is less than the pour at the tasting, seemed...

One of America's most historic distillery, in a beautiful setting among the horse farms of Kentucky. Very interesting tour, capped off with a little taste of their signature spirits.

We recently completed touring the Bourbon Trail, and in retrospect Woodford was one of the best. The grounds are pretty, the buildings are handsome, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant, and the bourbon was some of the best. We were especially impressed with their liquor stills, which are the "pot still" design. As with all the distilleries on... More

We waited for about an hour for a tour. This allowed us time to have lunch from the restaurant. I had a turkey sandwich on rye. It was served with a bag of chips. The sandwich was made fresh for me. The twist was the cranberry flavored spread and good swiss cheese on the sandwich. The rye bread had caraway... More

After visiting the downtown distillery in Louisville, this was what we anticipated in a distillery tour. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of items in gift shop. No one tour shows it all, so recommend visiting a couple distilleries in the area

Woodford is a beautiful location with clean modern facilities. Chris Morris is a true master distiller. If you want to see how the others should make bourbon....come here.

Beautiful spot, great tour guide (JP), wonderful day out with visiting family. The drive to the distillery shows central Kentucky horse country at it's best. Learned a lot on the tour. Guide value for the $10 tour ticket. It took out of state relatives to get us there. A bluegrass bucket list item.
