Located on Louisville's historic "Whiskey Row," the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience features an artisanal distillery, guided tours, educational Bourbon tastings, and more. Celebrating the legacy of Evan Williams, Kentucky's first commercial distiller, this immersive experience brings to life the history and tradition of Kentucky's native spirit.

Whether you're a Bourbon enthusiast or looking for something exciting to do in the city, come for a taste of Bourbon’s rich history. You’ll step back in time to 1783 and experience life and Bourbon making as it was in the early days of the Republic.

The guided tour features an operating Artisanal Distillery where you will not only learn the process for making Bourbon, but you will see it being made right before your eyes. The tour also includes a premium Bourbon tasting and concludes in our gift shop where you can take home an array of signature items including a personalized bottle of Evan Williams or a barrel-proof Whiskey jug.

  • The tour was awesome! Staff was super friendly!! Definitely recommend you should call ahead and book a spot for the tour. It was booked for a solid month as of today. We didn't have a reservation and they still treated us great gave us a free bourbon tasting and then as we were about to leave the next tour was starting and a few people didn't show up so they let us in. Over all Great experience 5 Stars all around!
