A big thanks to Justin for a phenomenal tour! The people and family environment was outstanding....can’t wait to come backs when the restaurant opens as well as the lodge. Oh...the bourbon isn’t half bad either ;)
We really enjoyed this tour and meeting the niece of the owners. She did a great job explaining the family history and about the iconic still. The operation is small, so not on the bourbon trail, but well worth the stop!

The day we went, it wasn't the least bit crowded. But I am now seeing that some answered that you could definitely use reservations. We went on a Monday and it was very open. That being said, I'd rather you be safe than sorry.
