Welcome to Woodford Reserve Distillery

Woodford Reserve Distillery

Besides horses, Kentucky is famous for its Bourbon whiskey. Numerous distilleries are open to the public, but one of the oldest still operating is the Woodford Reserve Distillery nestled between lush horse farms in Woodford County on McCracken Pike. Bourbon was first distilled here in 1812 when it was known as the Labrot & Graham Distillery. The beautiful limestone buildings have been restored to their original condition and the site is a National Historic Landmark. It is the only bourbon distillery still using copper pot stills, the traditional method of distillation. A visitor's centre provides displays and videos on the history of bourbon and guests can watch how bourbon is distilled in the traditional manner. The distillery offers several tours that include tastings.
