The visit to the distillery with my college friends was fun. They are from out of state, so a distillery tour was a must. This is close to Louisville and to Zappos's our other stop. We learned about the process, bottled our own bottle and even put our fingerprint in the wax. Corny, true, but effective in that we each... More

Our tour guide Travis was a lot of fun. We each got to sample 3 bourbons at the end. We ordered the nachos and pulled pork sandwich and it was delicious

Cousins from Missouri and PA met in Kentucky to spend a weekend together. We scheduled the Jim Beam 9:30 tour to start our Saturday. BEST MOVE EVER!!! Glad I took others suggestions to purchase advance tour tickets. This place fills up fast and this tour, and our guide, Michael, taught us all we needed to know about Kentucky Bourbon! Michael...

Had a great time with friends here and some great BBQ. Our tour guide Josh was a blast. Made the tour enjoyable with a great sense of humor. Got to bottle our own Knob Creek and get it personalized. It is so peaceful and beautiful at their grounds. Oh did I mention the BBQ (again) Great visit and highly recommend... More

We enjoyed the Jim Beam tour very much. It was a stark contrast to some of the other tours we did, being that Jim Beam is much larger than some of their competitors. The tour reflected how very commercialized their facility is. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She did a great job!

Had an awesome time here and I don't even drink. The BBQ was outstanding. Our tour guide Josh was very good and answered everyone's questions. You can tell he loves his job. All the employees we were around were very nice and helpful. Enjoyed hearing the history of Jim Beam and touring the faciities.

I thought the tour through the grounds was great! The tour walking through the process was very good. Buy I would have like to seen more of the real work happening onsite on the commercial side. We had 4 people in our group that got a special back door tour. They said it was excellent but wasn't open to the... More

The are pretty close to I-65 so you don't have to go far out of the way. For the $12 tour you get a 1.5 hour experience of the whole process, three free tastes, and a souvenir glass to take home. You can also bottle your own bottle of their premium Knob Creek brand and personalize the seal for the... More

Not only did we get to see how a small batch distillery works we also got to see the big one. Plus we got to clean out and help bottle our own single barrel bourbon for Knob Creek! The tasting room was so cool, the whole tour was really fun.

I loved this tour. I am doing the Bourbon trail and this was my favorite stop. I got there early for the 9:30 tour and was the only one on it which was awesome! I learned a lot more about Bourbon and solidified a lot of concepts from other distillery tours. Michael is a great tour guide. She explains everything... More
