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
