The O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky has a storied past dating back to the late 1800s. The 25-acre distillery site last produced whiskey in 1993 as the Medley Distillery and then laid dormant until it was purchased by the Terressentia Corporation in 2014. After extensive renovations, the distillery was renamed for O.Z. “Ty” Tyler, co-inventor of the TerrePURE® process, which we use to refine our bourbon after it has been barrel-aged.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to O.Z.

Very interesting and informative tour by a knowledgeable guide. I enjoyed learning the back story of OZ Tyler, from the earliest days to the present. You will learn the basics of how bourbon is produced and get to see where it happens. Also an opportunity to taste the product at the end of the tour. Well worth the time involved - maybe 90 minutes or so.
Caryn was one of the best, maybe THE best guides we have had, and we've been to a lot of distilleries. Different from other distillers and the tasting at the end was quite surprising! (Hint: the rye blew our minds!)
