    The Jim Beam American Stillhouse

    At the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont, Kentucky, you can walk in the footsteps of seven generations of bourbon master distillers and experience how the world’s best bourbon gets crafted. Visitors can take part in the production process, from mixing grains to bottling. Admission for a 90-minute tour is $14 for adults. Tours take place Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Make reservations at least two days before your visit and check in 15 minutes before your tour.

    The Maker’s Mark Distillery

    A large part of the Maker’s Mark tour is outdoors amid Kentucky’s splendid scenery, and reservations are not required. For groups of five or more people, buy your tickets online. Tours last about an hour, and they’re $12 for adults older than 21. The distillery is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

    Wild Turkey

    Wild Turkey in Lawrenceburg offers an award-winning visitor center with a sweeping view of the Kentucky River. The tasting room houses the distillery’s original copper still, and you can see a variety of Wild Turkey memorabilia on exhibit. If you’re lucky, you may see deer or real wild turkeys during your visit. Tours start at $10, and they’re free for members of the military. The visitor center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays from March through December.
