I have been around Bourbon distilleries all my life and I learned a lot. My group ate lunch and then went on the tour. First class operation.

The drive to Woodford was worth repeating! It is gorgeous horse country and more incredible than we imaged from other reviewers. Then you arrive at the new welcome center that is simply lovely. It has the benefit of a cafe with seating overlooking the campus and a water feature. Very high-end feel as opposed to some other welcome centers. Classy... More

Loved that you can see all the stages of the bourbon-making process. The place was packed but the women selling tickets made sure I was helped. The headsets they distribute make it easy to hear all of the dialogue, though there was occasional static. Our tour guide, Larry, was very knowledgeable and had a dry sense of humor, which we...

We missed the opening of the new welcome center by one day, but we were not disappointed in our tour, tour guide (Steve B), or the hospitality. Steve was thorough and knowledgeable. He answered all the questions people asked without hesitation and didn't just stick to a script. He was also patient with photographers, and plus for me :) The... More

The two words that come to mind are quality and class. Woodford Reserve is, in my opinion, one of the best distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. My wife and I visited on 4/7/14. The new visitors' center is luxurious and stylish without breaking from the historical feel of the property. I love the fact that Woodford has preserved, and... More

Great tour, beautiful grounds/buildings/setting. We enjoyed lunch at Picnic on The Porch... beautiful setting if the weather permits you to sit outside (the "porch" is a large deck area with several tables/chairs; there are tables/chairs in the Visitors Center if you choose to dine indoors; you order at a counter and they bring your food to your table). Our tour... More

I really like their new visitor center and gift shop. It looks like a house with a huge back patio that overlooks the distillery. They have a shop with premade snacks and sandwiches plus drinks. They offer tours and you can purchase tickets at the front desk. Very nice setting along the stream and the trees all around.

We recently took a tour of Woodford Distillary. Steve was our guide and did an excellent job of keeping it both interesting and fun. The historic grounds are beautiful and our family was fascinated hearing about the Woodford story. At the end of the tour, adults receive a tasting of both the reserve and the double oak and also a... More

We did a number of distilleries on the bourbon trail while visiting KY, and this one was definitely one of the best. The grounds are beautiful, the new visitor center was gorgeous, and the tour was excellent. We had a really great and knowledgeable tour guide and really enjoyed our tour. My only complaint was the tasting- it was in... More

Enjoyed the brand new visitor center at this distillery. The tour guide knew her subject well and showed a strong desire to make the tour interesting and lively. Will bring out of town guests here to enjoy the tasting and beautiful distillery.
