  • Woodford Reserve -  Tour Kentucky’s oldest distilling site, where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on these same hallowed grounds that years later Master Distiller James Christopher Crow perfected his whiskey-making methods, which today have become common practice. The distillery is home to a 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, their iconic copper pot stills, and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. They also boast one of the only heat cycled barrel houses in the world, ensuring every drop seeps into the charred and toasted white oak, giving Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor. Conclude your walk through history with a tasting of their award-winning craft bourbons.
  • Four Roses Bourbon -  Four Roses is the only bourbon distillery that combines five proprietary yeast strains with two separate mashbills to handcraft ten distinct bourbon recipes, each with its own unique character, spiciness, and rich fruity flavors. Up to all ten recipes are mingled by hand to create Four Roses Bourbon. Enjoy a guided tasting at their historic Spanish mission style distillery and take home a signature tasting glass.
  • Jeptha Creed - Jeptha Creed Distillery sits on 64 acres of farmland, where mother-and-daughter duo Joy and Autumn Nethery grow the Bloody Butcher Corn used for all of their products, including bourbon, whiskey, vodka, and moonshine. The Nethery family has been farming since the 1700's. They believe in the ground-to-glass motto: all their ingredients are grown on their farm or locally sourced. Don't miss the unique opportunity to taste their bourbons straight from the barrel.
  • Old Stone Inn & Tavern - End your day with a three-course meal accompanied by America's spirits. The Old Stone Inn & Tavern draws influence from fresh, local ingredients and the grand tradition of the south. The Old Stone Inn is operated by David Danielson, the renowned Executive Chef of Churchill Downs—home of the Kentucky Derby.
