This distillery is the real deal. Super friendly staff and great whiskey. This tour is not about the gimmicks; it’s about how whiskey is really made. Great products too. Loved the OCD!

This distillery is on the site of the old Old Crow Distillery. The micro distillery process was interesting, we got to help fill a barrel, and the product was delicious. The old distillery buildings are fascinating.

Today myself and a friend stopped by the distillery to procure a bottle of Ryskey Rye Whiskey. Being a Kentucky native, sometimes it's easily forgotten how fortunate I am to live in the bourbon capitol of the world. Once I had heard that Glenns Creek...More

This is a relatively new craft distillery on the grounds of an historic distillery that dates back many years. They offer a tasting for a small fee, and explain the history of the distillery and their spirits. They are good, but need a little more...More

Off the path and well worth it. Be prepared though this is a small craft operation. 3 guys doing what is obviously a passion for them. Many, many things going on here. Rum, shine, whiskey,bourbon with a lesson on rules and regulations of production. Dave...More

We had a great visit. Get some OCD! you won't be disappointed. It was a fun tour, not "corporate", like the bigger distilleries.

When we first pulled up to the distillery, we were quite skeptical. The facility is quite antiquated and there was a sign telling us tours started at this point, but I was not sure we should go. Once there, we entered a room with nice...More

Nearly hidden along McCracken Pike in the former Old Crow Distillery is Glenns Creek, a boutique distillery run by two men. Nothing fancy here but you will find warm hospitality and and an excellent tour by John Kemper. John will walk/talk you through the distillation...More

This is kind of off the path, but it's a nice little "new" distillery.They make very small batches of different things and I think they're doing well. John was very personable and helpful with his answers and banter. They have it set up so that...More

We stopped by on Sunday after visiting Woodford. They have limited hours but if you go early afternoon, they should be there. Great group of guys.

Hi JGB, We have been told by the Woodford County Building Inspector we are not allowed to have visitors because we do not have restrooms or handicap accessibility. We are in fact open and welcome visitors who make their way in. We will not turn anyone away, but we are not allowed to have an "open" sign. Sorry about that. But our number is listed and if you call we can sure show you around. The people who do stop in enjoy the visit and tend to be people who go "off the beaten path." As to the "No Trespassing" sign that is for when we are closed to make sure people do not sneak in. This is a historic place that was abandoned for 30 years so the lookers and looters come through the fence. We have to have a sign so that we can take legal action if needed. Next time you are in the area stop in. We are here pretty much 7 days a week but now and then we are all out of town! We are a small operation with two guys mainly. David Meier Owner
