We come here to stock up on Eagle rare Because we can't get it from where we are from. We also love the bourbon balls.

Stopped in on vacation. We got in on a tour at the last minute. It was their smallest tour. The tour took us on the main parts of the Distillery and told us a lot about history. I and my husband both enjoyed the tour...More

I don't think you could go wrong on any of the tours. Woodford does a very nice job as well as Buffalo Trace and Evan Williams.

They make Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare and you can taste them. They are also involved with Blanton’s and Pappi, but you can not taste them. They are involved with a bunch more including vodka.
