Enjoyed the cooperage. Enjoyed seeing the massive amount of barrels aging. Disappointed that there was no actual distillery.

My first distillery tour. Don't know much about bourbon but wanted to learn a little bit. This tour was perfect. Our guide Tucker was helpful and informative. Learned some of the history. We walking toured different buildings on site, got to see the legendary still and smell the aromas of a barrel warehouse. The tasting was a unique experience, discovering subtle differences between bourbons. Great gift store, we picked up a bottle of Blade and Bow bourbon to take home.
Very cool place to visit. The location is classy and the gift shop has tons of cute things for the bourbon lover in your life. We were not able to take the tour but the bourbon flight is a must! The people were so nice and friendly.
The grounds are beautiful and the history is very rich. Amazing how many brands were distilled there in what was at one time the largest distilling operation. Our tour guide was very fun, knowledgeable and engaging.
This was our first Bourbon Trail distillery and we are so happy we came here! Kelsey was a wonderful tour guide and the place is packed with history and knowledge, plus in the tasting you can totally realize the difference between a high end Blade & Bow vs a traditional Bullet bourbon (even though its the same Diageo company). Net: highly recommended!
This was a wonderful experience. I love the Stitzel-weller grounds. So much history and culture of Kentucky bourbon in this distillery. Although we didn’t take a tour (all booked), we scheduled a tasting and we’re able to walk around the brand shop and house. We enjoyed going through the house at our pace taking in all the history and decor. Our tasting ended up being just my husband and I and we had the wonderful Allie as our tasting guide. She was a fabulous host! She gave such a great education on the bourbon, history of distillery and other great facts and recs about the city and the area. We appreciated her very much! She definitely went over and beyond and made our experience one of a kind. Thank you SW distillery and Allie!
