Woodford is very beautiful. The buildings on the grounds are stunning. The vistors center has been update recently. It is pretty fancy. Don't miss "wafting" the vats of mash!

I had the best time...My KY friend suggested we stop at this distillery before we hit a different one..what a treat. Beautiful building, grounds...what history! One forgets the history of an area, and seeing it through a well versed tour guide made it uber fun! I would certainly revisit! fyi, we had visited one other distillery that same day. Limit... More

Very interesting tour and very well-informed guide. Beautiful buildings and grounds. Had a bourbon tasting after the tour (and I don't even like bourbon)! But, we were taught how to go about tasting it. This was something to not miss.

Woodford Reserve Distillery is in my local area of central KY, horse country. Having made many trips to the Distillery to take guests, and for family enjoyment, I can say that I've never been disappointed. The tours are varied and truly interesting. The employees are warm, courteous, and helpful. The gift shop is one of my favorite stops, and where... More

No big deal here. Pretty boring after touring Buffalo Trace (excellent). Tour guide acted like she was doing us a favor.

Woodford Reserve Distillery is the most recent distillery we visited on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Travel to the site is through Kentucky horse country passing many of the established farms. The tour was one of the best if not the best on the Bourbon Trail. The visitor center is well appointed and has the option to purchase food. A consideration... More

We enjoyed touring three fine bourbon distilleries on a cold dreary December day; each distinctly different. At Woodford Reserve it seemed as if the tour was as finely crafted as their bourbon; little was left to chance. The highlight was seeing and smelling the fantastic inside of a warehouse and the associated process of bottling. The intensity of the aroma... More

We drove through some of the most scenic countryside to get to the distillery. The setting is absolutely magical. It is worth the drive just for the scenery. The distillery is set on a gorgeous acreage. The main building is beautiful and the gift shop is great if a bit lacking in some variety. If you aren't able to pre-book... More

Arrived at 140 for the 2pm tour and was able to join the 145 which was great! I can imagine in the summer or peak seasons would be restricted parking. Beautiful reception area, very arty and cozy with super friendly staff. Our Guide was very friendly and gave us the grand tour answering any questions along the way. They bus... More

We arrived at Woodford on a beautiful fall Saturday and found ourselves there with several hundred other people. The car park managers had their hands full. We had to wait 2 1/2 hours for a tour, so we wandered down to Versailles while we waited--a very picturesque drive too. Clearly booking ahead would be advisable at prime times of the... More
