The setting is simply beautiful! The tour is great in that you not only learn about the making of their bourbon, but the history of the property and it's buildings. The tasting after was very well explained. We visited in August when most of the distilleries are not in production, but they were which make it so informative. The drive... More

$10 tour for a little over an hour tour including bus ride up and down the hill, into fermentation tank and still building, and then the aging warehouse and bottle filling (although closed due to maintenance). Tour guide was knowledgable and able to answer a myriad of questions from the group of 24. Included a sample of base bourbon and... More

The Woodford Reserve Distillery, a stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, has lovely, historic, well maintained grounds and buildings. The gift shop has many interesting items including all of the accoutrements needed for appreciation of fine Kentucky whiskey. It takes a bit of driving to get to the Distillery, but it is worth the effort. Visit early in the day... More

I found this gem while riding my motorcycle and had to stop in. I was never a Bourbon fan but became one after this tour of their Distillery. The setting is unbelievably beautiful and had a great experience. I began to journey the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and found Wild Turkey Rare Breed is my favorite but do think Woodford Reserve... More

Woodford is a beautiful facility and our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and during the tasting he walked us through on acclimating your pallet so that you can get the best flavors from your bourbon! Well worth the visit!

I may be biased because I love WF bourbon, but this was a great experience. The setting is beautiful and very green. Our tour guide (Carey) knew his stuff and shared a lot of great knowledge. Cool gift shop too.

We were visiting several distillers on the bourbon trail. We enjoyed the tour which took us into 3 buildings and included 2 tastings. Tour is $10 (which is pricey compared to $5 at other distilleries and we did not receive a glass) Unique distilling methods and small batches make the bourbon on the more expensive side. Woodford's production is year... More

If you are a consumer of Wiskey or someone who enjoys seeing how things were done old school... This is a great tour to take!

Many different items to purchase, area to sit and relax. Different tour options...although they charge for their tours unlike other area distilleries. Nice afternoon drive...just a few minutes off of I-64 on the right...watch for a brown road sign-easy to miss!
