  • Most say that when you do 1 distillery tour you have seen them all- but atleast for Peerless and many other historical distilleries in the area, this is a tour not to miss! So much history around...  more »
  • Stopped by for a last minute tour yesterday morning with my wife and a coworker. We had a terrific experience! The facility is inviting, clean and perfectly designed for receiving guests. It was great visiting such a small distillery where the family atmosphere is strong. We were able to taste their newly released bourbon and three rye expressions. All were absolutely delicious! Definitely stop here if you are planning on visiting a Louisville distillery.
  • Visited for a tour and was truly charmed by the entirety of the experience. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Tour guide was engaging and informative. Excellent pricing for a tour and tasting of four of the distillery's pours; tour also included a souvenir keepsake glass and chocolate. Bonus: Rye (the distillery's sweet resident cat) may have been the highlight of my entire Louisville visit.
  • Because of our time limits, we only did the tasting part of the tour. The staff and owners of Peerless should be proud of this very fine distillery! The retail area is well thought-out with neat displays and merchandise. The tasting room is also well done with lots of room at the counter/bar. My only regret is that I did not purchase the "bigger" bottle single barrel. As I write this review, I am sipping on some barrel proof with a fine cigar. It is totally delicious and my tasting notes are going wild! Can't wait to come back for the bourbon. Will look for it at my local retailer. A job well done Peerless. Keep up the good work and you should be successful for years to come!
  • Fantastic, thorough tour -- date I say fun?! After a few days of tours it was nice to have a very laid back and personal vibe to our tour. We had a great tasting topped off with a bourbon truffle and I loved their whiskey (can't wait to see how they are when they've aged a bit longer though). Great gift shop just a bit higher price point because they are so small batch. Highly recommend!
  • This place is fantastic!! Hands down a great experience. The history and heritage alone will have me as a repeat customer, the staff is genuinely friendly, and the bourbon is excellent. Highly recommend.
