Woodford Reserve Distillery

One of the prettiest drives to a Kentucky distillery goes to Woodford Reserve. Travel past picturesque horse farms with black fences on your way to this bourbon destination.

Built on the oldest distilling site in Kentucky, these hallowed grounds now house Woodford Reserve’s trademark copper pot stills and entire bourbon operation. Traditions started by Elijah Pepper in the early 1800s continue with Master Distiller Chris Morris and the Woodford Reserve brand.
