  • I thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour of the distillery. Our guide (Dylan) was funny and knowledgeable. It was the most comprehensive tour I have taken while in Kentucky. The grounds and buildings are impressive. The only thing they could add would be to give you a free logo embellished sipping glass at the end.
  • Definitely glad we ended our weekend of tours with Jim Beam Distillery! Our tour guide, Daren, was so informative and fun! I had called a few weeks before and mentioned it was my husband’s birthday the day we were going and they had made a note of if and made the trip extra special for him by involving him in some demonstrations. Tasting was awesome as you got some options to choose from and a cocktail was included. Great experience! We would recommend to anyone making a trip down for distillery tours, add this to your list!!
