  • This was our last stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, but one of the favorites. We already know the "how" of making bourbon, but it was still nice to see this facility and taste their products. A nice...  more »

  • We started off with Wild Turkey first on our Whiskey/Bourbon Trail. We were very fortunate to catch Master Distiller Jimmy Russell while there at the Visitor's Center / Gift Shop and chat with him for a few minutes. He's an amazing guy with over 60 years of stories from the business. He was even able to tell me a few about where I'm from (Kansas City, MO). He also signed a bottle for me. Wild Turkey is located up on a bluff overlooking the Kentucky River. It's an absolutely beautiful location with lots of history posted on the walls within the Visitor's Center. A must see!
  • Very impressive scale but it's almost too big. It's kind of missing that smaller charm that other distilleries have. Still I would recommend it to see how massive the production can get.
  • Came here for a tour as part of my bachelor party. I can't remember the tour guide's name, but he was hilarious. Great tour, very informative. I learned a lot about my favorite bourbon and bourbon in general. I would highly recommend this tour.
  • Unique experience as you get to go into the original warehouse (~120 years old). Red was a great tour guide. The only downside is the 2 1/2oz tasting limit.
  • Very interesting and thorough tour. After visiting Makers Mark, no other distillery could come close. This one, however, is worth visiting because if the sheer size of the operation. The visitor center is very nice and the tasting is well done, though it could be more educational.
