    A "must stop" in Grimsby, worth the drive!
    We had four people in our group which allowed for three tasters (one designated driver). This enabled us to experience more varieties by each person selecting a different four choices and sharing them with the others. The hostess was very entertaining and knowledgeable which made the experience all the more enjoyable. She even had tips of where else she used the products besides in a glass, like in the batter of pancakes for the Oh Canada Maple Liqueur. Can't wait to try that one!

    A great time spent tasting whisky
    The free tasting was really easy to book, communication was impeccable, staff very friendly, attentive to the customer's wishes, and the products were great. It would be really nice if the distillery could offer a tour of the premises, just like a lot of wineries do. It was a bit disappointing that the Art of Blending whisky was not offered for tasting. It would be really nice to be able to try the top of the line product before committing to a purchase with a hefty price tag. The Glencairn tasting glasses purchased there are awesome! (And the price was very reasonable, too) Overall, it was a fantastic experience.

    Great tasting experience!
    We booked a tasting here yesterday for 11:30. We arrived thirty minutes earlier than expected and staff was able to accommodate us earlier than our booked tasting time. It’s always nice to be warmly greeted upon arriving at an establishment. Our tasting hostess was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the Forty Creek products. We had the opportunity to sample products unfamiliar to us.

    Amazing
    My buddy and I went for the Annual Whiskey Weekend and this was our first time going. We were not disappointed, the atmosphere, the entertainment, the drinks and food were amazing. We did the Whiskey Seminar and it was beyond worth it. Learned a lot and got to play Whiskey Judges. Will be going back next year.

    Forty Creek Whiskey Tasting
    The tour was amazing, and the guide was knowledgeable, informative and very personable. Forty Creek is a beautiful and clean facility. The tasting options were plentiful. We did not know what to expect, and it was above our expectations. We learned some history of the area, whiskey and Forty Creek and sampled some fantastic whiskeys.

    Outstanding rye
    I have always chosen Weiser's as my rye whiskey choice, but after our visit with Gabby at 40 Creek I have switched and only purchase 40 Creek. My two of choice is the Copper Pot and the Double Barrel. The new limited addition Cherrywood is amazing. The knowledge and passion that we recieved from Gabby was outstanding. I find 40 Creek's rye to be very smooth and clean.

    Fun tasting at Forty Creek!
    We had booked a scheduled tasting but showed up early. We were welcomed with open arms and led directly into the tasting area. We learned alot about Forty Creek whiskey and the vast product line. The customer service was excellent and our guide was friendly and well versed on the product. Everyone in our group purchased at least one or more items. We would highly recommend a visit to Forty Creek!

It needs to be more personalized, with some explanation and some route. It is the minimum expected for a company like this.

Staff was super friendly. Very knowledgeable.
Selection of products at the distillery was fantastic. Prices were more than fair.

After touring over 20 distilleries in Tennessee and Kentucky it was nice to visit one that is local and see we were not being gouged.

Unlike most other distillery tours we have been on Forty Creek actually has everything they make for sale on premise. That was super refreshing to see.

Great experience. Awesome job

great tour, loved that we were able to compare tastes with different varieties .
the outdoor patio is a good idea but road noise from the highway was almost unbearable at times
