It was a challenging trip to get there, but worth it. Very authentic and enjoyable. With large tour groups, be prepared for the heat. Some tour stops are extremely hot. Yes extremely. Be prepared. The facility and tasting area is top notch and memorable.

The best distillery on our Bourbon tour! Even if not into bourbon, the site and tour are amazing. As noted in other reviews, the 277 acres are amazing. And what history. Oldest bourbon distillery in the world. Marge and Bill Samuel created a brand unto...More

This was a very enjoyable tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Being so close to the production, including being able to touch and taste the fermenting mash was amazing. There is an amazing amount of work that goes into producing, aging and bottling...More

Amazing property and distillery! The tour was great. Very sophisticated tasting of their brands. We enjoyed immensely. The glass artwork displayed was from an amazing artist.

You get to find out what the hill country of Kentucky is like getting there, but the drive is worth it. Beautiful setting. Informative tour where you get up close and personal. You get to taste 5 and sometimes 6 bourbons.

The grounds are very nice and manicured. My wife would say pretty. The tour was average. Bourbon is personal, the tour was corporate. Didn't seem like a lot of room for the personal.

Maker's is a bit difficult to find but well worth it as others have said. The setting is in a beautiful valley of Kentucky. We did the "Behind the Bar" tour. Our guide/bartender was Kailey and she was great. Would recommend this tour but make...More

You have got to try a VRBO or Home Away! We found a beautiful home two blocks from downtown and we loved it.
