  • Even if the tours are booked, come for a drink! Our tour guide, Ralph (who was awesome!) told us when this distillery was first built, it was envisioned as a "destination distillery" (like the beer gardens of Europe), and in my opinion that is absolutely what it has been restored to today. The grounds are absolutely stunning, with a variety of places to sit and enjoy the creek, and a botanical trail to stroll. The tour was totally fascinating, but even if you can't get on a tour, it would be completely worth stopping by just to enjoy a cocktail in such a beautiful setting. I wasn't blown away by their spirits drunk neat, but they made great cocktails, and the entire experience was phenomenal overall.
  • A great tour made even better thanks to our tour guide, Rich. He was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the property and made the tour a memorable one. The tasting was awesome as well, as we weren't expecting a cocktail style tasting of their products besides the bourbon. Would highly recommend to anyone starting their bourbon tours.
