- How many distilleries can we visit?
We can easily do two tours in a day (one before lunch, one after lunch) and in many situations, we can work in a tasting at a third location. On Sunday tours, timing does not allow a third stop.
- What does the cost include?
All planning, transportation (we will pick you up at your hotel, Airbnb, or home), two distillery tours and a third stop for tasting, lunch, and the services of a KBB guide for the day.
- How long is our day?
Typically a tour day runs from about 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Specific tour times will be determined and shared with the guest after booking. Most distillery tours are about 75 minutes in length, including the tasting.
- What should we wear? Are there any clothing restrictions?
Comfortable shoes for walking are recommended. Closed-toe shoes are required for the ISC Barrel Factory tour. You will be outside during portions of most tours, so dress accordingly to be comfortable.
- Can we take pictures?
Yes, although a few distilleries will tell you when photos are not allowed (this is rare).
- Can we bring our own drinks on the tour?
You are allowed to bring a small cooler in the tour van. Water bottles are allowed on most distillery tours, but open containers are not allowed.
- Do I need to bring my ID?
Many distilleries now ask to see a driver’s license for each guest.
- Can I smoke? Is an e-cig ok?
Some distilleries provide a designated smoking area. If unsure, ask.
- What type of vehicle will we be using?
For groups up to 11, you will be touring in our KBB raised roof van. Groups of 12 to 25 will be transported in an executive shuttle.
- Can I get a cocktail or bourbon drink at the distillery?
A few distilleries have opened cocktail bars with limited options for guests. If you would like to allow time to make this part of your tour experience, let us know when booking. More distilleries plan to open bars in the near future.
- Where will we have lunch?
We use locally owned, Kentucky Proud restaurants serving food from the region. Let us know if you have food restrictions, allergies, require vegetarian or vegan options, etc.
