If you're only going to take one distillery tour in KY bourbon country I'd recommend this one. Great setting, informative, fun. Extensive tasting at the end with instruction. I was a bourbon novice and learned how to taste properly without judgement. Good food and bar...More

Worth the drive, ways off of The Interstate but the view getting there was hilly, curvy and scenic. Very well organized and our guide was very pleasant. Ending with a tasting of 5 different varieties. You can even hand dip your own bottle.

If your near Bardstown, KY, head a little south to Makers Mark. A gorgeous setting down in a valley. Even if you don't partake in the consumption of their fine bourbon, it is worth your time to go thru the tour and see this distillery....More

Well-worth the $12 tour and visit. The reception building is decorated beautifully. The campus was absolutely gorgeous and was reminiscent of Jack Daniels. I loved the red shutters with the bottle outline on all the buildings. I really appreciated the tasting portion of the tour....More

Makers Mark website probably has the answer.

I am finally planning a trip down to Makers to get some bourbon from the barrel with my mom's name on it. We plan to go in April so that when she turns 90 in May she can toast her 90th birthday with some Marker's Mark from the barrel where here name is listed. Looking for suggestions as to where to stay while we are in Kentucky. Thank you.

Is it worth going on the Behind the Bar tour? This sounded like a lot of fun. Is this tour only available on Fridays?

Don't miss on the behind the bar tour as this was one of the better one's on the Bourbon Tour. We also enjoyed Buffalo Trace but this one was the best.
