Very cool tour. We were shown how they make their Burbon, got to see all the steps and then had a tasting of 5 varieties. And got to keep the glass. $20 for the tour and tasting. A must for Burbon drinkers!

Everything about this place is perfect. The location, the staff, the tour. Had a memorable time learning about how their delicious whiskey is made. Only wish we could visit more often!

Everything is perfect and absolutely worth the trip. Tour guide, property, buildings and (most importantly) whiskey very well done. Single Malt is the way to go :)
