  • Probably the most disappointing stop on the bourbon tour, the visitor center (while it is admittedly very beautiful) feels like an afterthought​ thrown in because people kept showing up and asking to look around. The rest of the stops on the bourbon tour feel like they have character, those companies made it clear they want customer engagement with large inviting gift shops and sitting areas, it feels like wild turkey did the bare minimum to be included on the tour. Unless you're a big fan of wild turkey or really want to hit all the stops, wild turkey can be safely missed without much regret. Probably the best part of the visit was the beautiful Vista overlooking the gorge you get crossing the bridge on the way there.
  • Great tour and, although I'm not a Bourbon fan, they did introduce me to a fantastic Rye Whiskey at the tasting. I was surprised I liked it -- but I liked it enough to buy a couple bottles to take home. Who knew? :)
  • We were lucky enough to tour the facility with Master Distiller (and Bourbon Hall of Fame member) Eddie Russell, who took the time to explain the entire process carefully. Learning the history of the distillery, as well as his path from "bottle turner" to Master Distiller was very interesting. It's clear they love their craft and the end result. The visitor center is a beautiful place, but the highlight of our time was being in the barrel house and sampling the 10 year olds straight from the barrel.
  • Dropped by today (Memorial Day 2017) for our third visit. Arrived at 12:35 and took the 1 P.M. tour, like always different guides always seem to be able to share something new. Afterward we chatted with Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and his wife Joretta who greeted us as she walked in with Jimmy prior to our tour. He gladly took pictures and signed autographs for all who wanted them and Joretta will cheerfully share a word with all. A visit with a living legend of bourbon history and some smooth 6 year old Rye whiskey with the one you love is a great day.
  • The staffs are not friendly and they are doing their job as just they have to do that. The tour was not that fascinating until I was getting chance to see the warehouse inside. But to me it's bit pricey.
