Top notch facilities with a great tour and tasting experience. The entire family enjoyed hearing about the process and touring the grounds. Even the drive is worth it. Beautiful views with horse farms and country lanes. A must see on the bourbon trail.

Authentic and professional, this distillery tour was stellar. We were thrilled with the warm & welcoming staff, the grounds were well manicured, the guide's microphone worked fine, the aromas were sublime, and the tastings wonderful. Well worth your time if you appreciate fine spirits.

It was well worth the drive to experience Woodford Reserve. We did not have time to do the tour of the distillery, but we ate lunch there and it was great!! The bourbon chili was delicious and the bourbon cheeseball was even better!! If you visit the gift shop, be sure to pick up some bourbon caramels. They are serioulsy... More

Most distilleries stop producing during the summer, but Woodford Reserve is such a small distillery that they can run all summer, so if you want to see the whole process during the summer this is the place to go. It's a beautiful distillery where you can also grab a bite to eat for lunch. We took the Corn to Cork... More

This was a cool place to visit. Visitor center was modern, people were friendly, grounds were clean, and tour was organized, and best of all, the Bourbon was Excellent:) Oh, that Double Oaked Bourbon was good... I enjoyed the tour and $10 ticket worth every penny. I love the fact that they give everyone a hearing device for the tour,... More

Completed the 2014 Kentucky Bourbon Tour - distilleries change each year. Woodford Reserve was the best of the 8 this year. Especially when it came to the tasting. Our guide JB was the most knowledgeable of all. He carefully explained a 3 step process to use for bourbon tasting that no others did. Put this on your list to go... More

We had been to Woodford before for the Bourbon trail, but this was the first time for one of our traveling companions and it did not disappoint for the 2nd time! First of all, the staff is very warm and welcoming. The tour is about an hour long. You walk into the house and go to the front desk to... More

This tour was quite boring. Our your guide was nice but she was very old and talked very quiet, although they give you a microphone with a one sided head set, which is more annoying than anything!!! You can't hear anyone else in your group with that thing in your ear and it's so much more impersonal!! The tour was... More
