  • I did the tasting, it was fantastic. The host was informative and funny. I was going to do the tour, but I found it too expensive. Other than that the rest of the place was Great.

  • Upon arrival, you are greeted with beautiful grounds, well maintained and very eye appealing. We did the 90 min tour and Kevin our guide was amazing! He was so knowledgeable about the process, the history and the product. You actually get to tour the distillery and see the process. One or our favorite parts of the tour was making your own bottle of a Knob Creek; selecting the bottle, rinsing it with bourbon and watching the rest of the process of filling, labeling, corking and then it’s hand dipped in wax and you can imprint your thumb or anything else that would work on the top of the bottle. They give the tour free to veterans as well, a big plus for supporting our military! We then ate at Fred’s Smokehouse after the tour and it was amazing, the bourbon baked beans were fantastic! In the gift shop they did not have Large size in several items my fiancé wanted, so only suggestion I would have is to increase the inventory on shirts. All of the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They say you arrive as friends, but leave as family and it definitely shows.
  • Huge campus distillery offering tours, tastings, food, and a cocktail bar. Stop here if you are a fan of Jim Beam, Knob Creek, Basil Hayden, Baker's, or Booker's. We visited wanting to try their higher end products (Baker's & Booker's) which we were able to do by purchasing a tasting "ticket" at their gift shop. - pay the extra $5 for unique the keepsake glass. Once you have a drink ticket, head over to their (single door) tasting room for either a cocktail or a single pour of any of their products. Plenty of seating outside or bring a picnic to enjoy your bourbon on the lawn!
  • Our tour guide was amazing! He kept us entertained and so full of facts and history. Even if you are not a bourbon person like myself - the history of Jim Beam is very interesting. Their items were fair priced in the gift shop and I cannot say enough about the southern hospitality here. It is a must stop and see
  • Came here right after my time at FT. Knox for summer training and probably the best way to commemorate my time here. The tour was very educational and involved. We got to clean our own bourbon bottles and fill them up during. Afterward the service in the store getting my bottle of Burbon and getting it engraved was downright awesome and very friendly. We stopped in at the smokehouse right next to the gift shop for lunch and I got the Sandy Sandwich and ended up getting seconds! Seriously amazing place to visit and enjoy the Kentucky vibes.
  • Visited the distillery yesterday afternoon. When we arrived, was told there was no more distillery tours available (if you want one, book early!), So we "settled" for the warehouse tour. Was it amazing!! Travis was our tour guild, he was awesome! Very engaging, very knowledgeable, answered every question, was literally the perfect tour guild. Honestly, if I were to do the tour again, I would way till I was in his group. Learned a ton from Travis about Jim Beam's history and had a blast leaning the proper was to smell and taste the bourbon. Highly highly recommend!! And ask for Travis as a guild!
