Woodford Reserve is the most historic of the distilleries my husband and I visited on a recent trip to the Bourbon Trail. The grounds and buildings are beautiful. It's on the smaller side so you get to see a lot more of the process and the facilities than at the larger distilleries. We got food from their cafe and ate... More

This was my second tour. I went ten years ago and they have since made some additions. The drive there is lovely. They have very old limestone buildings. It's full of history. It costs $10 but it's well worth it. We had a great tour guide, Steve B. It's a very informative presentation and entertaining as well. At the end... More

WOODFORD is a favorite brand of bourbon, so we were excited to see what they had to offer at the distillery. Every aspect of our experience was awesome. Staff galore for directions in parking lot, ticket sales, lunch counter & retail store. The lobby gathering area is open & spacious and facilities very clean. When discussing the choices at the...

It is one of the nicest sites on the tour. Very scienic. They only have 2 bourbons to taste but it was a nice experience.. And the... More

This is an old distillery and famous for its Kentucky Bourbons. The visitors Center is modern, cool, fresh, and appealing with a beautiful fireplace and bottles everywhere. The tour was very interesting from watching the fermentation vats bubble to slow walking through the aromatic storage houses, to seeing the bottling process in action. My favorite part was watching the barrels,... More

Since my husband is a big bourbon lover, we couldn't resist stopping here for a tour. The grounds are just beautiful, the employees cordial and attentive and the tour interesting and informative. After an extensive tour, you are then taken to a lovely appointed tasting room and given bourbon samples with chocolate to experience. The main thought that went through... More
