My family and I visited Woodford Reserve Distillery one Saturday and the tour was incredibly educaitonal and engaging. Our guide was funny and knowledgeable, and the facilities are beautiful while still being functional. Many of the buildings are from the 1800s and are still in use today. I highly recommend this tour!

The distillery is easy to find in the heart of Kentucky horse country. Beautiful area, with easy access into and out of of the parking area. The tours run on time, with shuttles taking folks between buildings on the grounds of the distillery. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It is one of the most expensive distillery tours in... More

this is a beautiful facility and a stark contrast to industrial large scale distillers (which you should visit too in order to appreciate the difference). The only negative was we were very rushed through the tasting which only featured two bourbons. As soon as we were done the tour guide said, "When I said, " it's time to leave", I... More

This was a really interesting tour even if you aren't a bourbon drinker. My husband and I both took the tour, he's a bourbon drinker, I am not. You get a tour through the distillery and the guides will answer any questions you have, though their explanations go over more than the basics. The tasting is fun, even if you... More

We went on 6 tours this last visit to the trail - and this is my favorite distillery, bourbon, and tour. Our guide was very informative and most educational. You get to look down into the wood vats and the stills are amazing. The grounds are beautiful and old, you can just feel the history around this place. Great photo... More

Beautiful grounds and very clean distillery! Tour was conducted with headsets, which I did not enjoy. Bourbon tasting was limited to 2 samples- very good but less than the other tours. Reservations for the tours is recommended. We had to wait for our tour but enjoyed the scenery and The Café at the distillery. The chicken salad was excellent!

Our visit to Woodford Reserve was delightful. My brother in law was on a walker and they were very accommodating for his needs. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the visitors center. Be sure to get special bottles engraved for gifts and the bourbon balls are to die for.

Make sure you reserve a tour..... they do have a fee (not all distilleries do). We had lunch at the cafe'; not to impressive had an average pork sandwich and the ice cream was really ice milk. The distillery looked nice, but we could not see much without the tour.

Rob was an incredible guide and great experience to make our tour interesting... but compared to the 8 other tours we took over the last three days, Woodford needs to rethink their distillery tour. Two tastings was by far the smallest compared to others, although Rob's directives for how to approach bourbon was among the best we had... the grounds... More

Excellent tour! The grounds and buildings are amazing. The immediate area is stunning. Enjoyed learning about their processes. The tour was just right - not too long or too short and the tasting was great. I plan on returning for one of their other tours.
