Fun and informative tour made more than perfect by the amazing, funny, and super knowledgeable Steve Fontay (sp?). Only 5 min from Maker's Mark Distillery, the tour of the small craft Limestone Branch makes a perfect complement to the big commercial distillery tour. Generous tastings...More

Great tour with lots of personality. Probably about our 11th distillery & really enjoyed this one. Loved the little trailer rickhouse with baby sized barrels. Thanks for a nice time Stephen. A free tour & great tasting.

This is such a charming establishment just a ways from Maker's. They'll invite you in like family and make you feel at home. You'll be entertained, educated, and get a little buzzed. They have more than bourbon; try the Kentucky Moonshine. Their flavors are excellent...More

We stopped here for a tasting ( free 6 pours) . Friendly staff, nice gift shop with some unique gifts and local honey. I did not think I would like the moonshine- boy was I wrong- we ended up buying the Moon pie chocolate moonshine.

We missed the tour but were invited to join the tasting at the end of the tour. The tour guide was very energetic and complete. The products were good, though we didn't try the flavored moon shine.
