  • Riley led an incredible experience from start to finish. Comprehensive and personable. Would love to see the bottling process as well.
  • Visited this distillery as our first stop on a Mint Julep Experience tour (highly recommend this company) and their tour was very educational, and I was able to finally learn exactly what it takes for whiskey to be considered bourbon, and settled the myths I had learned. One of the more interesting aspects of Wilderness Trial Distillery is that their parent organization specializes in fermentation and they offer their expertise to other distilleries and breweries around the world. They make a solid product and we had a lot of fun. I only wish our tour guide had the volume of their speaker turned up just a couple more notches.
