Susan did an excellent job with our tour. This one was fun because it includes both beer and bourbon, as well as cypress fermentation tubs. A lovely facility and well worth the visit.

This was our first stop on the bourbon trail. So glad we started at a small distillery! We got what seemed like a personal tour and learned a lot about making bourbon. Interesting to learn also about beer in bourbon casks. Stop by!

Remarkable place. Fascinating history. Our tour director, Mary, was wonderful. The Bourbon Trail is cool and this might be the best place because they make beer and Bourbon!

This was my favorite stop on the Bourbon Trail! I’m not a big bourbon person, but I do like my beer. This distillery gave more sample tokens than any of the other distilleries on the tour- and you can use the for bourbon, gin, beer,...More

When we went there, we had to take the tour but we could choose to take the tour and tasting of bourbon only, beer only or both. We took both and the tour was very interesting and exciting.
