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

The drive alone getting here was beautiful. The distillery is a really cool place and there's even a cute gift shop and coffee shop. I would definitely go back!
