If you want to try some of the best bourbon in the state and see how it's made his is the place to go! Is a small scale distillery that takes bourbon serious. Spend a day here for some great fun!

Woodford Reserve is where it's at. The visitor's center and tasting room are gorgeous and very elegant. It makes tasting bourbon a real treat...even if you're not sure you like bourbon. We only had time for one other distillery tour, but this one was my favorite. The tour is very informative and a great history lesson. Watching the mash brew... More

We visited 3 distilleries in our bourbon weekend. This one is the most educational, complete, and charming. Highly recommend it. The tour walks through the small old limestone distillery, where you see the grain mash bubbling away, then over to the triple distillation, and finally to the casks. It's all in such a small space! The guide wa really knowledgable... More

This is a very busy property that takes great pride in showing its heritage. The tour started with a great guide and needed with a great sampling of their product. Well Done!

Woodford Reserve has a limited selection but their selection has definitely been perfected. Steve was our guide and he did a great job answering questions. What we liked best was the tasting. Steve gave us many ideas on how to conduct our own tasting at home and foods to pair with the bourbon.

The drive to Woodford Reserve is absolutely beautiful with the tree lined street and horse farms. I attended the Bourbon Academy - What an amazing experience! Worth every penny to get the expertise and hear the stories from the Master Distiller and Master Taster. The lunch was absolutely to die for delicious. Highly recommend Bourbon Academy for that special someone... More

We were distillery tour pioneers by now. We had a group of 15 for a bachelor party weekend. I really like this bourbon and enjoyed the tour. The guide was knowledgeable and informative. He talked to us rather than at us. Put this one on your list and take Four Roses off your list.

We were lucky to get a beautiful sunny day in February for Bourbon Trail exploration. Beautiful drive through Versailles and horse country to get to the distillery. The site itself is historical and interesting, our guide was very knowledgeable. The only downside is that, because it is accessible and popular, it gets bigger crowds and tour bus traffic.

We visited with friends as part of the Bourbon Trail. It was fairly busy but we managed to get on a tour within 20 minutes. It cost around $14 per person. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. He let us wander around each section, taking pictures, before moving on to the next. The area... More
