Dear valued guest,
In order to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are adjusting our visitor experiences for a period of time.
In lieu of full facility tours, our visitor experience will be limited to certain areas. Visitors will not be able to go into production areas where our staff is working.
What this means for you:
If you are visiting during the week your visit will include brand/distillery education and an elevated tasting featuring a limited offering product.
If you are visiting Saturday or Sunday your visit will include brand/distillery education, a trip into our bottling room, and an elevated tasting featuring a limited offering product.
Also local mandate requires tastings to be outside. Please dress accordingly, as we are entering colder months and are doing our best to make our guests comfortable while maintaining safety.
We thank you for your support during this difficult time. Stay safe!

What To Expect
Kentucky Artisan Distillery offers a behind-the-scenes experience on every tour
On your tour you will experience a bourbon distillery as if you were a distiller yourself. KAD was built first as a distillery, and tours were added later. This means that every tour gets up close and personal to the actual equipment. You will not see anything from behind a glass window. You actually walk through our laboratory, where you can ask a distiller that question you’ve always wanted to know the answer to. Our guests get to interact with the people behind the brands that call KAD home; many of our tour guests get to meet our head distiller Jade Peterson, our owner Steve Thompson or even Trey Zoeller, the founder of Jefferson’s!Book Tour
