We toured five distilleries on the bourbon trail this past weekend. Jim Beam was by far the best. I booked the Distillery Tour online several days ahead of time. (Reservations must be at least two days ahead.) This is the most expensive and longest tour. The 90 minute tour involves a combination of walking and shuttle bus. This was the... More

No kennel or shade here. SO skip it if you have a pet who will need shade in the car. It is surprising there is none.

I'm not a huge Jim Beam drinker, I went because I like their new products like Red Stag. I have to say I was thoroughly impressed. This was our first distillery on the tour, the grounds were visually stunning with pops of color and lots of old barns. The tour was fun, the guide kept me entertained the whole time.... More

We were traveling through Kentucky and decided to stop at the Jim Beam Distillery. Since we did not book in advance and arrived early afternoon all the tours were booked for the day. We did visit the main building and walked the grounds. The gift shop is well stocked with Jim Beam products. If we visit in the future we... More

We have been to Jim Beam before but it's been a few years. Since our last visit, they have changed the visitor's center and added the new Stillhouse. It's very nice and the grounds are very picturesque. We were too late for the last tour but did the "Taste of History". Our host was very knowledgeable about the history of... More

This was the best distillery tour from an interactive perspective. While you wait for your tour to begin, you can look around the welcome center or sit out front in a rocking chair. Be sure to check out the worlds smallest distillery! Our tour guide was Shelby. She did a great job explaining the distillation process along the way. While... More

When we got to Jim Beam we missed the 12 pm tour which ended off being a good thing. We were told about Freds to go eat. We had the beef brisket tacos with coleslaw and pulled pork nachos. Let me say the food was wonderful. We went on out tour and our tour guide was amazing. We enjoyed the... More
