We did the Bourbon Trail for four days and this was the best. Overall scenery and tour guides were awesome. You get very close to the production process and get to sample some spirits. Put this on your short list. I'm coming back.

This was a wonderful tour by a great young lady. She was enthusiastic and fun. The tour was rainy and we were provided with umbrellas. The facilities were very clean. The tastings were explained well as was the history. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide, Laura, was so funny as well as informative. Despite the cold weather, the tour was amazing because it was a small tour group and as a group we walked quickly to each building. The tasting was private and personal for the group....More
