We enjoyed the tour and the Bourbon was very tasty. We bought a couple of bottles and their cookbook. Not much attention to detail in the distillery. Kind of a mess. Picture of the one warehouse. Kind of creepy to be in there knowing that...More

This is a very nice place for a hot afternoon visit. Not sure about the tour, did not take tour. Generally any distillery tour is interesting.

We enjoyed our tour, as we continued along the Bourbon Trail. This is not officially on the trail, but I'd recommend stopping by. You can't beat a free tour and tasting, when others charge up to $20/pp (Angel's Envy). Our tour guide was knowledgeable and...More

Did the distillery tour just after the warehouse collapse. Guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Liked that they had a 4 p.m. tour which most other distilleries do not. Easy walk. Tasting after the tour was fun and good. Would recommend and it is free.

We have intended to visit Makers but along the way home to Utah, we heard a bit about the 1792 Distillery and the sign on the side of the hiway cinched it. Glad we went. Very good whiskey, very good tour. Interesting history. All of...More

This is a fun place to go with friends or crowd (not so much kids). They introduced me to a world of great mysteries. Love the fact that they have 19 warehouses full of barrels brewing the bourbon. You visit one warehouse and totally get...More

This was on my hubbies bucket list, and I have to admit that I truly enjoyed the tour. I’m sorry that I don’t recall our guide, but she was awesome—- very educated in the product, answered all questions and was entertaining!
