I really enjoyed the grounds. You could tell there was a lot of history there and it had been well preserved. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant.

Awesome historical tour!
Jul 2021 • Friends
This place is so cool! Very old and historical. It is only 15 minutes away from downtown Louisville so well worth the trip. The staff is amazing! They are very knowledgeable and friendly. We had some confusion with our tour location so we were unable to get there at our scheduled time. Shannon and Jill took the time to give us an amazing one of a kind tour and tasing experience! It made the rest of our day and trip from that point. We couldn't stop talking about it! I will never forget how kind they both were. I am truly thankful and will tell everyone I know how awesome the Stitsel-Weller distillery experience was!

The best so far!

This was our favorite stop on the KBT during our first visit. Emily was a fantastic guide and did a wonderful job explaining the history and background of bourbon in general and the Stitzel-Weller Distillery in particular. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and the grounds, and we had some great drinks afterwards while we enjoyed the patio. Thanks!

A must see in Louisville

We took the hour and a half tour of the property followed by a tasting. The grounds are beautiful. Our tour guide was fantastic. A wonderful way to experience part of Kentucky’s history and bourbon’s history.

The grounds are beautiful. The history is rich. Tour guide and staffers were just the right friendly. The Bourbon tasting was yummy. The cocktails and porch were relaxing. A perfect way to enter a few nights in Louisville.

Great tour filled with local history
Jun 2021 • Couples
If you love bourbon and it’s rich history, this tour is for you!! We’ve done over 15 bourbon tours and this one is by far the best! This is not a true working distillery, so you won’t see a huge vat of sour mash fermenting, but if you’ve been there, done that previously and you’re interested in hearing where some of the old, original bourbons were born, take the Stitzel-Weller Distillery Uncovered tour. Fantastic tour—worth every penny!!

Entertaining and Informative
Jun 2021
From the moment we stepped on the grounds we were warmly welcomed by the staff! Our guide, Greg, was informative as well as entertaining. He has a wealth of information about the bourbon industry which he shared with just the right touch of humor to keep us constantly engaged. The gift shop staff were so fun to interact with and added to the fun of our experience! We highly recommend a visit here!
