Since group capacities are still smaller than normal, tours fill up quickly. Booking your tours in advance is an absolute must. Walk-ins most likely will NOT find space on a tour, so be sure to check online or reach out directly to the distillery you want to visit. And keep in mind that many distilleries are avoiding production areas, so offerings may include other experiences like advanced tastings, cocktail classes, etc. (Hours/offerings are subject to change)

Safe rides are key! If you’re planning to explore outside of urban areas, ride sharing services are extremely unreliable. We recommend either bringing a DD or booking with a trusted transportation service. If you do the latter, they will book all of your experiences for you – so easy!

Kentucky is still under a mask mandate and all distilleries are requiring masks to be worn inside. We appreciate your compliance!

And don’t forget your ID as all distilleries check them before tours and tastings.
