Took a tour of Hiram Walkers Mansion during the Rum Runners Tour and it was beautiful. The craftmanship found in Walkers old home does not exist anymore, absoultely stunning! The history within these walls is incredible, even toured a speekeasy that was the center of meetings between Walker and Al Capone. The tour guide was young and was impressed with his quick witt, easy way of speaking, knowledge of the home and the history of Canadian club and the rum running days. Highly enjoyed the tour.

We took the tour and did the tasting and it was the best 5 bucks I ever spend. The building is beautiful and the guide was very informative. Lots of history here definitely worth the visit

Went here for a meeting. The service was excellent. The room was wonderful. The guided tour was incredible. Make sure to check out the garden at the rear of the building overlooking the river. So scenic. Also, visit the lower level to see the room where Al Capone got his whiskey during prohibition.
