A friend and I came to central Kentucky this weekend to tour some of the Bourbon Trail for the first time, and Woodford Reserve was our first stop. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it set the bar WAY too high for the rest of the weekend! Carey, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgable, friendly, and personable throughout the entire tour. Even though... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the distillery. We learned a lot about the distillery and its history from our guide. We enjoyed lunch and shopping at the gift shop. I am not a bourbon drinker, but I really enjoyed the tasting at the end of the tour. I just had to purchase a bottle of their double oaked bourbon.

We took the porch tour due to time constraints but we were able to garner much of the history of Woodford Reserve. We waited in a large open area with sofas, a huge gas fireplace, Gift shop, food service area and tables for eating. The short porch tour was well presented and teh samples of teh product and Bourbon balls... More

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.

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
