  • Get a tour from the master distiller at Limestone Branch Distillery, where it’s legal to make (and taste) moonshine! This ‘shine comes in all sorts of flavors, and the process is a unique one. Come see it for yourself as moonshine is distilled in a 150′gallon hand hammered copper pot still! Tours run Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and on Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm.
  • Bourbon is only as good as the barrels it’s aged in! Come see how these important barrels are made by hand, “fired” to precision, and checked for accuracy at the Kentucky Cooperage. Tours run Monday through Friday at 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. No open-toed shoes or cameras allowed.
  • Speaking of spirits, our new winery hasn’t officially opened yet, but you can still stop by and get a tasting at their temporary location. Try some of WhiteMoon Winery’s tasty spirits, and come back soon to try their new blends which will be stored in used bourbon barrels, giving them a very unique and delicious flavor.
