Let me start by saying, I am not really a drinker. This was a last minute add-on to our trip. Thankfully, we made a tour! They do sell out very quickly, You can book online at the website. If you know for sure you'd like to see this, I would recommend doing this! I felt the tickets were very reasonably priced. You take a tour of the facility where they brew. They take you through the entire process, and let you touch the grains, add grains, smell the low and high wine, sample a fresh barrel of bourbon, and even rinse bottles! The tour was awesome, and very informative. The only downfall was there were children. I really didn't think it was appropriate, and they were kind of obnoxious, because they really didn't care how Bourbon is made.
We also go to see the warehouse (9 stories) where they store the Bourbon. Wow, that was a real eye-opener!! Finally, the tour concluded with a tasting. Our tour guide lead us through the "proper" way to sample Bourbon. (Since I am not a drinker, this was actually really helpful to me). Other people have complained about the lack of "personal contact" with this part of the tour, but I appreciated being able to take my card and figure out what I wanted by myself. If someone was hanging around the whole time, I wouldn't have sampled anything. Our tour guide was there the whole time and answered any questions we had.
Awesome tour, and I hope to go back again!!
