Why Our Private Tour Day Is Different
Work Directly With The Owner:
When you call, text or email, you will be dealing directly with the owner who has 18+ years of experience in the bourbon industry working for one of the largest whiskey distillers in the world, not someone who works doing inside sales and hasn’t made it to all of the distilleries or maybe none of them.
Our Tour Guides:
Our tour guides are knowledgeable bourbon industry professionals who have worked in a variety of segments including distilleries, liquor stores, bars, restaurants, other tour companies or just plain bourbon geeks. They can answer your bourbon questions.
Visit Distilleries With Your Customized Agenda:
Start when you want. Go where you want. Go with people you want to be with. Not a large, public bus tour. No waiting around for others.
Buy 'Hard to Find' Bourbon Bottles:
We know where to shop and can take you there.

THE 'FINE PRINT' FOR ALL KENTUCKY BOURBON INSIDER DISTILLERY TOURS
Included in 'Tour Day' Price: We will work with you to customize an agenda for the day and will purchase 'public tour' tickets in advance once the 50% deposit is paid as part of our 'Concierge Ticket Service'. A bourbon tour guide and designated driver will pick-up and drop-off at Louisville hotels or residences.
Not Included in 'Tour Day' Price: Tour tickets and/or tasting fees charged by each distillery are not included. The average distillery ticket is between $20 to $25 and includes a tasting. Some distilleries offer free or discounted tours and tasting to veterans, military and law enforcement with proper ID. We do not include lunch or gratuities for our bourbon tour guides in our listed price. Taxes and fees of 14.5% will be listed on the deposit request and final invoice. The 18% minimum gratuity will automatically be added to your 50% deposit request and final invoice.
Deposit & Full Payment: One half of our bourbon tour fee and the estimated distillery ticket costs is due the day the tour is booked with the remaining amount due based on the actual cost of distillery tickets at the end of the tour day. All major credit cards are accepted via the Square online payment system. If the final invoice is not paid after five business days, a $100 late payment fee will be applied.
Cancellation & Changes Policy: If you cancel at least 14 day(s) in advance of the tour date, there is a $100 service fee for each tour day booked with us and your remaining deposit will be refunded unless tickets for Glenn's Creek are purchased as these are not refundable. If you reschedule at least 14 day(s) in advance of the tour date, there is no service fee and your remaining deposit will be applied to your new date unless tickets for Glenn's Creek are purchased as these are not refundable. If you cancel under 14 day(s) in advance of the scheduled departure, your deposit will be forfeited.
Transportation Upgrade Options: This is a 'private tour' transportation experience. No outside guests will be in your vehicle. Once our 'Fleet Vehicles' are booked, we will use other rental vehicles on busy days. For two, three or four people, a four door sedan or a 'Standard Class SUV' (Ford Edge or similar) will typically be used. For five or six people, a 'Standard Elite Class SUV' (Nissan Pathfinder or similar) or MiniVan (Dodge Caravan or similar) with a 3rd row will typically be used. Upgrade to a 'Fullsize Class SUV' (Tahoe or similar) for $175 or a 'Premium Class SUV' (Suburban, Ford Expedition or similar) for $225 or a passenger van (Mercedes Benz Sprinter, Ford Transit, Chevy Express or similar) for $275 per day. For seven to eleven people, a passenger van (Mercedes Benz Sprinter, Ford Transit, Chevy Express or similar) will be used.
Distillery Tours: Unless discussed and agreed to at the time of booking, all distillery tours will be booked for the standard 'public tour' offering at each distillery. Some specialty tours offered by distilleries will sell out weeks or months in advance.
Other Topics: Minimum drinking age is 21 years and proper identification is checked at most all of the distilleries regardless of age. The distilleries ask that you drink responsibly while visiting their facilities and on their tours. For customer review details, please check Trip Advisor. If your tour day runs longer than nine hours, your group will be charged $50 per hour thereafter.
