“Worth the detour”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Not an alcoholic drinker, but saw the sign driving from Nashville and Chattanooga, and decided to take a detour and visit the distillery.

The visitor center is nice and modern, with exhibits all around the large room. The tour is free.

The tour starts with a group photo, and then a short bus ride. You're given the history of the company, and then walked through several buildings, from the original office, to the water source, and one of the warehouses. We were told that the tour would take an hour, and it ran about 15 minutes extra.

Because of local laws, they don't sell liquor that they make there (other than some promotional bottles). There are also no free tasting, but the free lemonade was quite good.

“Very informative”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

My husband and I arrived bright and early for the sampling tour only to find out it was being done at noon! So we waited, we were able to look around the area and take our time reading little tidbits of information. The tour was incredibly informative, we learned so much! Our tour guide was friendly and attentive to everyone. I highly recommend going on the sampling tour as well. My husband has come home and thought he was an expert on whiskey. The tour guide explains everything and shows you how to taste, smell, and really step back and enjoy the whiskey more than you had before!

“Great experience”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Visited in December with friends. We booked the taster tour and it was great. You actually start appreciating whiskey much more after seeing the whole process of how it is being made. The guide was very informative and good-humoured.

“Jack's Old #7”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Entertaining tour of how whiskey is made and how it is that Lynchburg is the location for Jack Daniels's Distillery. Tour Guides are informative and have a sense of humor. Some walking involved but not too bad.
