ABOUT THE DISTILLERIES
Four Roses
The people who work at the Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg, KY, continue the legacy that began with Paul Jones in 1888. Their passion for quality and pride in handcrafting an award-winning Bourbon is evident in the smooth, mellow taste that has become the signature of the Four Roses brand. Visit the historic Spanish mission-style distillery to discover what makes Four Roses truly unique. Enjoy a walking tour of the distillery & grounds, explore the distillation process, and conclude your experience with a guided tasting of our award-winning Bourbons. Our signature tasting glass is a gift. Handcraft your moment.

Buffalo Trace
Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. Within the past decade, Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the world, including an unmatched seven "Distillery of the Year" titles.

Woodford Reserve
The art of making fine bourbon first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812. Experience the truest expression of Woodford Reserve at our historic distillery in Versailles, KY. Take a tour through the Woodford Reserve Distillery and explore the history of bourbon, the five sources of flavor, and the historic barrelhouse resting along the peaceful Glenn?s Creek. Following the tour, guests of legal drinking age are welcome to taste our award-winning Woodford Reserve spirits.

Wild Turkey
For over 75 years, Wild Turkey has made whiskey right at the top of Wild Turkey Hill in Lawrenceburg, KY. A recipient of several awards, the Wild Turkey Visitor Center is a must-see on any trip to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Inspired from the silhouette of Kentucky tobacco barns, the Center has an unbeatable view of the Kentucky River. Come to the Angels Room to see the view and enjoy your bourbon tasting after the tour. Walk down the gallery hall and read about the distillery's history and see the memorabilia that dates back to before prohibition. Then, go to the gift shop to end your Wild Turkey experience and take home anything from bourbon-scented candles to some of the highest-end bourbons.
