  • We went on the tour and had Leah as our guide. The tour was really educational and engaging. The grounds here are gorgeous. The Rick house had great views of the barrels. The mash room was awesome, with huge open wooden vats that you could walk right up to and the smell was absolutely fantastic. We had already been on three tours before we came here but it was still absolutely worth it. And did I forget to mention that the end product is delicious?!
  • Woodford Reserve distillery tour was such a great experience. The distillery is located out in the beautiful green fields of Kentucky. The tour costs $20 and is well worth it. You start in the main building and take a small bus down to the other buildings 1 minute away. Then you take a walking tour through the fermenting building, bottling building and barrel storage building. You then take the bus back up to the main building for the tasting. At the tasting you get to sample 3 different varieties and also get to sample a bourbon chocolate ball. The guide very thoroughly explains each bourbon. Our guide was very friendly and easy to listen to. She made it fun and interesting. After the tasting you can go out and shop the small gift shop or purchase a mixed drink from the small bar. I highly recommend visiting and taking a tour of Woodford Reserve Distillery.
  • Loved this one the most. Such beautiful scenery, and buildings. Great pre-post tour cocktail bar, and nice gift shop. Amazing tour guide, and wonderful bourbon. As good as some of my other favorite distillery tours were, this one edges out in the top soot so far. This is a can’t miss one.
  • This historic Distillery was a fantastic visit. Worth every minute. Our tour guide was fantastic and full of information. Definitely bring a camera and take lots of pictures and pay attention to your guide. Follow the instructions at the end and you'll truly enjoy and understand bourbon at a completely different level.
  • Our friends suggested a distillery tour on a very hot day. It was a great decision as the tour was cool and informative. Kenny, our tour guide did a wonderful job! The tasting was fun and we learned a lot about the flavors of rye and bourbon. It was fun to learn that the tree bark around the distillery is black because of black mold (harmless) from the process and in the time of prohibition, that was how moonshiners were detected! We also enjoyed the bourbon chocolates at the tasting! Thank you for this entertaining afternoon!
