We arrived around 11 and were able to do a tour at 11:20. We only had 4 in our group and it was perfect. We loved the audio headsets so you could hear the guide perfectly. She was very interactive and loved having questions with no hesitation asking the workers if she wasn't sure. The scenery was beautiful and offers... More

We had a good time with this distillery tour. Everything was well thought out and organized. The price of the tour seemed a little steep to begin with since we never had to pay for any others, but with the personal earbud and the listening device, I can see them justifying half of the ticket price. The grounds are pretty,... More

Visited this distillery while taking part in the Bourbon trail. Our tour started on time and we all received personal listening devices. We had no trouble hearing just our guide throughout the tour. Steve B (like bourbon) did an excellent job taking us thru the entire process. We saw the cypress vats of mash, the distilation process, storage barrel room... More

Beautiful new visitors center was warm and inviting - loved the fireplace. Cold drizzly weather kept us inside but there is a deck where you could enjoy a snack or sandwich in nicer weather. They do offer light snacks and sandwiches and pastry for purchase. The guided tour was professionally presented and a great behind-the-scenes look at how Bourbon is... More

We had already visited 5 other distilleries so didn't feel the need to do the tour. We did a tasting on the porch which ended up just being the 2 of us. The main building is beautiful with nice porches and a small place to get a snack and relax. We ended up driving in a back way, and the... More

Nestled in horse country, a short drive off the interstate. Tour interesting with tasting at end. Got the last tour of the day so missed the bottling process, but had a very good guide. Facilities exceptionally clean, staff pleasant and helpfhl.

Great way to spend a day with adult family members you haven't seen for a while. Even the seniors over 85 were able to join in thanks to the shuttle bus and an elevator in the distilling building. The snack bar food was the perfect way to ensure safe driving. - just enough food and great quality. Exceptionally well maintained... More

They have enlarged their center since we visited two years ago and it is a beautiful addition. We enjoyed a light snack while we waited on our tour. It was a shame that it was a little nippy and we did not get to enjoy the outside porches. Our tour was very good and we all enjoyed the sampling at... More

We did six distilleries and this was the best tour. The drive to the location is beautiful. When we first arrived it looked a little snobbish compared to the other spots but my opinion was wrong. The tour is great and they make great bourbon. The Woodford Reserve Double Oaked is the best. The tasting was unique because we were... More

I don't think I disliked anything about this visit. The property is stunning, the bourbon is excellent, the gift shop prices were reasonable, the staff was friendly, and the tour was nice and quick and more intimate than some others. Take all the time you can in the rick house—the smell is unbelievably wonderful. Take the distilleries tours with Mint... More
