I stopped here while exploring Lexington. Definitely worth it! Chad was a great host and was excited to talk about the work they do. They offer several samples of different products. The only downside was they were out of bourbon....

It is a long walk from downtown Lexington. So maybe not the best way to visit. 5$ for the tour but worth every dime. Tourguide was very enthousiastic, his explanation very clear. Too bad there wasn't any Bourbon to buy, but we did taste it....More

Thanks for the great review and walking from downtown. It is about a mile each way and the there are no sidewalks the last little bit. That will change soon with construction starting on the Town Branch Trail that will run from the distillery to...More

The guy who led the tour and tasting was knowledgable, friendly, and personable. My husband and I liked the vibe of the place - laid back, friendly. Unfortunately, they were OUT of their bourbon - bummer, this is why we came. We did enjoy a...More

Stopped in while doing the Kentucky Craft Bourbon Trail. Chad and Abbey were fantastic as hosts. They were out of their bourbon, but their rum was excellent. We are looking forward to returning when the bourbon is ready.

Inviting atmosphere. Very original and off the beaten path. Nice life music from 4-7pm on the weekends.

Visited here on a Saturday night and it was not too crowded but loud. Drinks were good. Atmosphere was nice. Seemed like just one waitress who seemed to be run off her feet serving inside the building and the patio. We stopped for one drink...More

If you like bourbon, you'll love Barrel House. The bourbon is excellent, but the best is the tour. Take a few minutes to tour the facility, and see how their bourbon is truly hand-crafted, by only a few hands. If you're lucky, you'll get a...More
