  • Very good and informative tour.( i was enjoying it so much i forgot to take pictures till the end)Four flights of stairs so you can look down on the mash bubbling in the vat. They do have an elevator. Our tour guide knew his stuff. Very good Bourbon. You get to taste 4 of them w hx and stories of each. Very nice gift shop has something for everyone. You can purchase a special Bourbon that you can only buy if you take the tour. (Not cheap) Well worth the time.
  • This is my first bourbon tour in the bourbon district and it was amazing!!! Our guide Andy is very knowledgeable and informative almost to everything. Details are presented, questions are well answered, jokes are funny. When moving to the tasting session at the end, I really appreciate the way he introduced stories behind those bourbons. I got a chance to see those tanks where fermentation is taking place; I can clearly see the surface is bubbling. It’s a quite unique experience. It’s happy to how a brand like Evan Williams has started, developed, thrived, survived from the Prohibition Period and thrived again. I think all distilleries in the district give their own micro images to the ongoing story of Louisville.
