Not a lot to see. You should take the tour although they charge for it. You really should try the candy, but it is expensive. A Kentucky experience.

It was not clear how to get a tour, but we did buy candy and we were not disappointed. These are not treats to be wolfed down, but savored one at a time. Our favorite was the Bourbon caramels.

Stopped in to buy bourbon balls. Did not take the tour but have in the past and very short but unique. Service was very good and bourbon balls are the best to be found or eaten

Did not know how the candy would taste with bourbon involved. I like bourbon but most alcohol-infused candies tend to taste artificial or overpowering. These do Not. The bourbon balls were delicious and and mint julep balls were very good too. They do not make...More
