This establishment offered complimentary tastings. We skipped the tour as we have toured distilleries before. After tasting a few, my husband walked out of there with a big bottle of bourbon - their upgrade not the cheaper one. The gentleman helping us was fantastic!

This place is anything other than a mass produced distillery. We enjoyed a relaxing informative tour. Good tasting at the end. If younlike the Makers Mark Jim Beam huge distillery types then this is not for you, much more of a family environment here

This place is great. The staff was amazing, and our tour guide was even better. I can not remember what her name was, but you could tell that she loved doing what she does.
