We stopped here on the Bourbon trail and the tour was very informative, and I really enjoyed the historical displays. I was surprised to see all of the different exclusive bottling here. I enjoyed the smell o vision here also! I recommend a stop here if you are doing the bourbon trail.

The wife and I stopped here on our Bourbon Trail trip. In addition to the normal distillery information, they had a wonderful historical presentation on the history of bourbon and the regional impact. Well done!

A great history of bourbon in a functional distillery setting. We toured the "behind the scenes" for business and I am rating the public area, where most people will go.

Tour and tasting experience were very informative - we had a small group which made it easy to hear the guide and ask questions. Guide was very personable.
