It was a good experience. We went to three distilleries: Wild Turkey, Angel's Envy, and Bulleit. Wild Turkey's tour was good to see a working, mass produced facility. Although it was in summer hiatus, it gave an accurate account of the process, and the tasting...More

Be sure to allow yourself enough time to enjoy this tour. There are very few distilleries that are close to each other. Many are 15-30 miles apart. Most distillery tours take an hour and a half if you stay for the tastings. Add a little...More

A few of the distelleries are not on the trail but worthy of a visit. Check out all of the distelleraies in the area regardless of if they are on the trail or not.

Great tour with friends. Most all the tours have a fee, but there is always a tasting at the end. The amount and distance to other facilities will keep you above the legal limit. Bardstown is a gem of a little town. It's a great...More
