Kentucky Artisan was one of seven tours we did in three days. It was at the top of the list. The tour guide was excellent and we appreciated how much more interesting and unique a small distillery is compared to the larger operations

The facility is small and unimpressive. The tour was uninspired. And the bourbon? Yeah it's not great. So many better places to go in the area for the bourbon and the experienceMore

This place caters to people and it shows right from the start. We arrived before they opened up and they opened their doors to us even without reservations. We explained we were in a time crunch and would like to just do a tasting. Patty,...More

Artisans offers one of the most interesting behind the scenes tours on the Bourbon Trail. The distillery is not a large scale operation which allows them to share a low key and personal tour of the facility. Steve is a very knowledgeable guide and truly...More

Allot about 11/2-2 hours. This was a good tour and a great tasting session. Some fine bourbon is being produced at this little distillery!
