We were in town making stops on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. I wanted to see the difference of a craft distillery versus the big boys. Same process just a lot smaller scale. Peerless is a family run business that is rich in tradition. Our tour...More

We enjoyed this tour very much. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on the family and the distilling process. The family story is very interesting especially the tie-in to Gen Patton. Liquor is a little pricey but good.

We had the good fortune of the owner dropping in on our tour. We ended up at the end having a fun conversation with him. Ask him about the General Patton, the Allman brothers, and Al Gore. Yes, there is a connection.

John, one of only 18 employees in this small distillery, took us on the tour. Starting with the rich history of the distillery and ending with the tasting of some EXCELLENT rye, this distillery should not be missed.

Didn’t know anything about this company. Small operation so tour gets right up close. Owner actually gave the history. Learned a lot. Ended with tasting. Whiskey only until next year when burnout is ready. Tour guide was amazing

There are specific tour times and we did not need a reservation. If you have a large party you may want to call to coordinate that. Enjoy your tour! One of the best!
