This place gave an awesome tour. I've been to many brewery and distillery tours and this one is at the top. Very great tour that is for free! The smell is amazing around the facility. Highly recommend stopping here for a tour.

Had a great tour at distillery. Net the new Master Distiller, Danny Kahn. Mr Kahn was kind to take a few minutes to talk. He shared having been on the job for 4 months. See Kentucky Bourbon Collection for more on Kentucky Bourbon, History, Tours
