A fun place to visit before or after a distillery tour. Many unique flavors, as well as a few classics. Portions were nice size.

This is a locally-owned business with the BEST ice cream in Lexington. You have to try the bourbon ball ice cream. Their small batch ice creams are fantastic -- especially Martine's Pistachio Cake Ice Cream. Caution: The ice cream will spoil you for anything else.

We decided to try this ice cream after having dinner nearby - and we were not disappointed. Delicious and flavorful.

Great local Ice Cream Shop with many creative flavors. Took a bunch of kids and they loved it (as did the adults). Only drawback...it ain't cheap!

This place is awesome! You can get a flight of ice cream to try all of the amazing and very unique flavors that I've never had anywhere else. The building is also cool. I would stop here when visiting my daughter in Lexington, she recently...moved, but I'm still going to make a trip here when I'm in the area.More

I loved this place! They serve flights of ice cream so you get to sample several of their unique flavors. I had strawberry balsamic sorbet, coffee stout, bourbon honey and blackberry buttermilk. All were excellent but the strawberry balsamic sorbet was the standout. Will definitely...return on my next trip to LexingtonMore

Delicious ice cream. We had the coffee stout, gooey butter cake, and peanut butter and chocolate. All of them were creamy and amazing The butter cake was a little too sweet, but all were to die for. Super service and lots of places to sit...outside.More

We were looking for a quick ice cream break after touring the Mary Todd Lincoln House and found this place on Tripadvisor. So glad we went! Ice cream is wonderful and so much fun. The wait staff were pleasant and helpful and patient with a...10 year old boy who loves ice cream and all the toppings he can hold. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it if you want really good ice cream!More

Fun atmosphere great staff and fun flavors. Cookies and cream is to die for. I suggest getting the sampler which is 4 of their flavors so you can have a taste of everything.
