This place was nice, but I liked buffalo trace better, just because of the atmosphere. This place had more of a business-y corporate feel. It was still beautiful but it felt a lot more formal and you had to pay for a tour.

Beautiful distillery. I went with coworkers and the tour was very informative and not overly long. We did enjoy ourselves and would recommend.

Woodford has to be one of the prettiest distilleries around. From the fantastic location to the beautiful architecture to those gorgeous pot stills, this place is amazing. Megan gave a great tour and walked us through tasting their various bourbons. Definitely a favorite.

We went on 4 tours, and this was our favorite. The history and facilities are great. The tasting was also very informative. $15 for the tasting. Just a side note - what an amazing area with horse farms and rolling hills; beautiful.

The tour and whiskey tasting was interesting and well organized. And the grounds and buildings are beautiful. But I prefer tasting at a smaller, less commercial facility. This is a large crowd, "get them in, and get them out" kind of operation.

Get your reservations in early and take the Corn to Cork tour, what a fantastic time we had. Small group touring the facility with a very friendly and knowledgeable host. The tasting was not rushed and excellent.

Sorry but I didn’t count the employees. I can say that in every area of the distillery including the gift shop, restaurant and touring areas there were employees visibily doing their jobs.

We paid $10 per person for a tasting. No tour. It was easy and we paid the day we arrived.
