This tour will include a tasting at Heaven Hill Distillery (Joseph L. Beam), a tasting and tour at Limestone Branch (descendants of Minor Case Beam) and a tasting and tour at the Jim Beam American Stillhouse (Jim Beam).
We will pick you up at a local hotel or the Lexington Visitor Center for the drive to Bardstown. The tour is approximately 7-8 hours long with a moderate amount of walking. Water and snacks will be provided. Lunch is also provided as well.
