I can't claim credit for that summary - our guide said it. They took a nice old building in downtown Louisville, added some video screens and tasting rooms, and created an Experience. An Experience is a bourbon tour in a building that was built for tours instead of making bourbon. Every other tour on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail does a... More

This is a unique stop on the bourbon trail as it is more of an "epcot" experience than anything else. The unique aspects of this tour and experience, I feel, is worth the time and money. Our guide Rob was knowledgeable and walked us though the experience and the tastings like a champ. The Tasting room (The 1950's style-ish) is... More

This was an interesting experience having already been to Heaven Hill. The bottle of Evan Williams in the building's window is really cool. Rob was our guide and he did his job. The tour felt like it put you in that timeline, very cool experience.

The tour was $12, but it was worth it. You will get the history of Evan Williams plus a tasting of three bourbons. Tip: if you aren't a big fan of bourbon, once the tour is over and you're in the gift shop, ask for a taste of their flavored bourbons - they have peach, cherry, honey, and Fire. The... More

I made online reservations for the Evan Williams Bourbon experience which was nice & easy since I like organized activities on vacation. Our 1:00 tour, the first tour of the day, was unfortunately delayed by 30 minutes due to technical difficulties (videos were not loading/playing). The difficulties remained unresolved throughout our tour, which meant the tour guide improvised his way... More

We were late for the speakeasy tour and Manager Brian let Jason still give us a quick tour. Honestly the setting and tour of the distillery and speakeasy were one of my favorites. A bad time getting there was made great starting with Lexus to ask Brian to take care of us! Tastings were great - we bought Evan Williams... More

A mini distillery for Evan Williams bourbon. An entertaining tour with theatrics from their history. The bourbon tasting was also good and even got a bourbon chocolate treat at the end.

The Evan Williams bourbon Experience was a fun stop on our weekend trip. The technology incorporation was innovative and tasteful. We watched a movie, a riverside event, and a still scene as displayed on the wall. The small still makes one barrel per day right there in downtown Louisville. Our guide, Charles, was pleasant and answered all questions and made... More
