Jim Beam was one of the five distilleries we visited, and was tied for the best tour with Woodford Reserve. We showed up without a reservation and were able to get on a tour - just had to wait an hour. We walked around the grounds and looked at some of the self guided tour spots and had lunch at... More

A great bourbon country experience. The Jim Beam Stillhouse is the best tour for gaining an understanding of how bourbon becomes the final product. The grounds are beautiful. We grabbed lunch at Fred's on-site and enjoyed the smoked meats (chicken and brisket). The tour is very informative and the tour guide is well informed. A Jim Beam tour bus is... More

We did the Bourbon Trail and this tour was one of the best - Makers Mark was the other good one. You have a walking tour of the facilities with a really in depth explanation on the process from beginning to end. The tour ends with a tasting. You need to make a reservation early during ythe summer months the... More

Grounds are well maintained. My wife and I went on the facility tour. Tour guide Stephanie was very knowledgeable and efficient. Her voice is "high" so a little hard to understand within the facility. The tour was very interesting and fairly detailed. How many companies make a product that isn't marketed for up to 12 years. Tasting at a distillery... More

We had intended to do the entire 9 stop Kentucky bourbon trail, however, most close around 4 pm. We got to Jim Beam about 4:50 pm-they were closing at 5:30 so it was too late for a tour. Very disappointed that you cannot do a tasting unless you do a tour-here's a tip to all of the distilleries- offer tastings... More

You don't have to be a bourbon lover to enjoy this stop on the Bourbon Trail. Well preserved historical grounds and great gift shop. Wonderful tasting lesson, not just sipping. Great experience!

After touring the Bourbon Heritage Center @ Heaven Hill destillery (part of Jim Beam) I made a self giuded tour here. The area is very will maintained and the setup as a village brings the visitor to Jakob Böhms early days. Today his name is Jim Beam and widely known. The self guided tour I made lasts about an hour... More

We had to wait around an hour and a half, but it was worth it. Our tour guide was very informative, and I'm not into drinking bourbon. The landscape and grounds are very beautiful. The tasting at the end was very well planned, but don't take the last tour as you will only have a half hour before the souvenir... More

A great tour if your are a fan of bourbon whiskey with a very detailed tour of their processes. Staff was very fun and plenty of souvenirs and alcohol to choose from. One of the top 3 distillery tours to take if you are coming for the Bourbon Trail.
