  • Small place. tasting room is where they make the stuff and was a bar stuck to the side, no atmosphere . But the bourbons were really good and the gentleman was knowledgeable. We bought a bottle.  more »
  • This place is super cool. All of the stills are handmade, and it really is small batch bourbon. The tour guide is really fun, he knows everything about the process and is in fact one of the guys who runs the place. The bourbon is amazing, you won't go around with stopping here.
  • Amazing tour of this small, yet amazing distillery. The amount of time and craftsmanship these guys put into their bourbon is mind-blowing. Not far from Frankfort and easy to find with Google Maps. Personally I love these kind of craft places where everything is handmade and they really make you feel at home when visiting. A must visit for bourbon lovers who travel through the area.
