All tours visit 3 distilleries. This includes admissions for tours and tastings at 2 distilleries and admissions for a tasting at the third.
- What does the cost of our custom private tour include?
All planning, transportation (we will pick you up at your hotel, Airbnb, or home), admissions for two distillery tours and a third stop for tasting, lunch including tax and tip, snacks, water bottles, and the services of a KBB guide for the day.
- How far in advance of our visit should we book our tour with you?
We recommend at least three months ahead of when you plan to visit. That allows us a better chance to secure admissions at all of the distilleries on your wish list. For Kentucky Derby Week, we recommend booking as soon as possible.
- What if someone in my group is in a wheelchair or has other accessibility needs?
We can accommodate for all accessibility needs, just ask when you're booking!
- How long is our day?
Typically a custom private tour day runs from about 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Specific tour times will be determined and shared with the guests after booking. Most distillery tours are about 75 minutes in length, including the tasting.
- What is your cancellation policy?
More than 31 days out from the tour date: Tours that cancel 31+ days in advance are eligible for a 75% refund.
Less than 31 days until the tour: Tours that cancel within 30 days of tour dates are not eligible for a refund but can be credited a gift card for future bookings.
Kentucky Bourbon Boys understands that emergencies may arise and we will discuss with guests on a case-by-case basis.
- 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?
Most distilleries now ask to see a driver’s license for each guest. Active duty military and veterans may show ID for discounts at some distilleries — and we'll pass that savings along to you when you book.
- 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 10, you will be touring in our KBB raised roof van, or in our KBB shuttle for groups up to 14. Groups of 14 to 50 will be transported in an executive shuttle or motor coach.
- 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 authentic Kentucky restaurants for our custom private tours that serve food from the region. Always wanted to try the famous Kentucky Hot Brown? We've got you covered. Let us know if you have food restrictions, allergies, require vegetarian or vegan options, etc. The Louisville area public tour does not include lunch, but Hotel Distil has fantastic lunch options.
- Where can I purchase Bourbon Boys swag?
Visit our online store, or purchase while on a tour.
