We are a very unique place in the world of distillery tours. This ice cream factory-turned-distillery started out as a contract bottler and distiller for many different customers. They now focus on three distinct primary brands: Jefferson’s Bourbons, Whiskey Row Bourbon and Highspire Rye Whiskey.

Guests are given an opportunity to learn the fascinating story behind the Jefferson’s brands, while touring a one-of-a-kind distillery and seeing the fascinating process of bourbon production… from grain to bottle.

Every tour offers a behind-the-scenes view of the process as visitors actually talk to the distillers, climb up next to the cypress wood fermenters to view the mash, and walk through our laboratory (unheard of!) to see where the experiments of Jefferson’s founder and master blender, Trey Zoeller, come to life.

And while you wait for your tour, check out their charming gift shop, offering unique Jefferson’s keepsakes and Kentucky-inspired products. As of April 2016, even our tastings are uncommon! Enjoy a bourbon tasting of ALL 3 bourbons at our custom bar – a historical bank teller window saved from the old Bank of Pewee Valley, which closed in 1950.

Located just 20 minutes from downtown Louisville and 60 minutes from Cincinnati, Kentucky Artisan Distillery is the most personal bourbon distillery tour you’ll experience in Kentucky! Our tour is the perfect complement to your weekend stay in Oldham County’s luxury bed and breakfasts, your shopping, dining and train watching experience on Main Street in the La Grange Crossroads District, and your cool, educational horse farm tour by Oldham Farm Tours.
