Jim Beam American Stillhouse reviews
Sad it was closed for tours the day we went which was a Tuesday not sure if there’s no tours due to covid or just was to early? Would have enjoyed taking a tour more »

Upon arrival, you are greeted with beautiful grounds, well maintained and very eye appealing. We did the 90 min tour and Kevin our guide was amazing! He was so knowledgeable about the process, the history and the product. You actually get to tour the distillery and see the process. One or our favorite parts of the tour was making your own bottle of a Knob Creek; selecting the bottle, rinsing it with bourbon and watching the rest of the process of filling, labeling, corking and then it’s hand dipped in wax and you can imprint your thumb or anything else that would work on the top of the bottle. They give the tour free to veterans as well, a big plus for supporting our military! We then ate at Fred’s Smokehouse after the tour and it was amazing, the bourbon baked beans were fantastic! In the gift shop they did not have Large size in several items my fiancé wanted, so only suggestion I would have is to increase the inventory on shirts. All of the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They say you arrive as friends, but leave as family and it definitely shows.
Huge campus distillery offering tours, tastings, food, and a cocktail bar. Stop here if you are a fan of Jim Beam, Knob Creek, Basil Hayden, Baker's, or Booker's. We visited wanting to try their higher end products (Baker's & Booker's) which we were able to do by purchasing a tasting "ticket" at their gift shop. - pay the extra $5 for unique the keepsake glass. Once you have a drink ticket, head over to their (single door) tasting room for either a cocktail or a single pour of any of their products. Plenty of seating outside or bring a picnic to enjoy your bourbon on the lawn!
