I did the "speakeasy experience". I thought it would be a bit more in depth "experience" but was just a very basic tasting with a tiny bit of timeline involved. I thought it would be more in depth about prohibition and more of an "experience" but wasn't. Even as far as a tasting .. the host didn't do very much to explain flavor profiles or differences in what we were tasting. Basically was just underwhelmed.

Very impressive museum and tour. It’s right downtown and on Whiskey Row. The movies, displays and tour guide were fantastic. Great history of bourbon, Evan Williams distillery and Louisville. The bourbon samples and instructions were great. Nice cash bar and gift shop too. Purchased very nice limited edition bourbon and some gifts in the store. Really enjoyed the tour and experience. Would highly recommend.

Well worth the stop. The place is visually appealing on the outside and inside. Staff was friendly and helpful, there is a bar on the third floor that was unfortunately closed when I went in but I would have definitely stayed for a drink. Gift shop has a wider variety of merchandise and souvenirs, much more so than many other distilleries.

This tour lasts about an hour including bourbon tasting at the end of four different bourbons. Tour is more historical than watching bourbon being made. You start with a video explaining production and get to see the equipment and go through a few rooms explaining the history and showing the barrels used for production. Tasting is at the end followed by a gift shop. Tour is fun and worthwhile.

So good! Our guide, Andy, took pity after we were delayed by a flat tire. This was informative and fun even for folks who’ve been on many distillery tours. Not too long/short, easy and good. Highly recommend.

First off, I enjoy whiskey. My wife does not. Both of us were present on this tour.

The tour starts off sitting in a small theater to watch a really cheesy video taking place in the 1700s. One of which is Evan Williams. The video runs 5-10 minutes, before we move into another room where we stand and watch another video. Ugh! Next room....another video! Seriously?!

After the videos were done, the tour started to get enjoyable! Our tour guide did a great job of explaining some Louisville history. This was not covered by many other distilleries, so this was good information! He also spoke about how bourbon is made and what characteristics are required for something to be considered a bourbon (this gets really repetitive after you've seen a few distilleries).

My favorite part of the experience was going upstairs and seeing a recreation of Whiskey Row during prohibition. The prohibition talk was also very interesting.

Finally, we moved on to the tasting room and got to sample some Evan Williams products. These were some of my least favorite bourbons I tasted during our trip, but I seemed to be in the majority. They did have a 12 year Evan Williams at ~100 proof which was for sale in the gift shop for $130. Many of the guys on our tour seemed to be enthralled with it!

We like Evan Williams bourbon and enjoyed their tour in downtown Louisville. This tour is more of a historical presentation than one that concentrates on the whiskey production. However, the distillery aspects are also covered well, but not in great detail. Jewel and Bob were our guides and Jewel made our day with her enthusiasm and humor. We especially enjoyed sampling four bourbons, two of which we had never tried before.

The tour was different than the others we had attended. It was filmed and it felt like we were part of history. Two women were our hostesses and were funny and enthusiastic about their jobs. We were glad that they made sure that all participants were required to wear masks indoors. The tasting was held in a bar type atmosphere, which was nice. A good time was had by our small group.
