Our tour guide, Rae, was great! The distillery is in the midst of beautiful horse country. The experience overall, very commercialized. A small snack/sandwich bar full of plastic and more plastic. Cocktails available for a whopping $15. Overall gift shop prices higher than other local...More

This distillery is gorgeous and full of history. It all started in the early 1800’s. The rickhouses are stone/brick-different from any other distillery. The buildings and pot stills are beautiful and the bourbons are delicious. If you can only do one distillery tour while in...More

Sorry but I didn’t count the employees. I can say that in every area of the distillery including the gift shop, restaurant and touring areas there were employees visibily doing their jobs.
