You don't need to be a fan of bourbon to enjoy the grounds at Woodford Reserve, or the very informative tour that is offered. The samples at the end of the door are great, as they do an excellent job of describing your particular bourbon and the notes that you could taste. Nice tour with a great touch of history... More

Of all the bourbon distillery tours I hit up on the Kentucky Bourbon trail I was most impressed with Woodford Reserve. The campus was beautiful, and you could see the passion and history at every turn. Very well done, and worth a visit!

For me, the Woodford Reserve Distillery was a full circle. It happened to be the first bourbon I tried and liked. The distillery showroom is a high quality site with an equally impressive tour. Well worth the stop. Great distillery, great tour.

Woodford Reserve has one of the nicest and prettiest grounds. They are surrounded by horse farms and even the drive up was nice. The tour was very informative and we enjoyed it. Their 3 large copper pots stills are pretty cool.

This was my first visit to Woodford, and everything about it was gorgeous- the buildings, the drive in along the horse farms, the visitor's center, etc. We had a small, intimate tour and then did a tasting out on the deck; our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed her work. Well worth the stop! They also sell bourbon barrel-aged... More

Surrounded by horse farms and with many historic buildings, Woodford Reserve is one of the more picturesque distilleries that we've visited. The standard tour was $14 per person and included an excellent tasting experience.

We saw any number of distilleries on our vacation. The grounds here are just amazing and to get to know the history is just wonderous. The tour itself is the hightest in price we paid, but was really fine to pay. We were given a perfectly precise rundown of how this product is made and given a beautiful sampler at... More

First, the drive to get here is incredible! We saw huge, fenced, expansive horse farms, even a farm with a race track there were lots of horses everywhere, and gorgeous barns and homes. The tour guide was knowledgeable and kept it interesting. It's a mix of modern and old technology here. Not quite as quaint as Heaven Hill or as... More

Woodford Reserves was one of my favorite stops on the bourbon trail. The historic buildings in the beautiful landscape were very serene. It was a nice tour of the distillery and the historic rickhouse, followed up by a sampling of some of the finest bourbon. I loved the double oaked bourbon & the bourbon balls. Our tour guide David was... More

Even though this is a big distiller I really loved the tour and the drive in. The drive in is though the heart of horse country, white picket fences and all. The tour is great up close and personal. The day we visited they were bottling and we we got to stand within feet of the barrels being de bunged... More
