    Buffalo Trace = Absolutely a must see. Best "behind the scenes" tour we've ever had including a stop in the bottling room for Blanton's and Eagle Rare. If you're a fan of trompe l'oeil, you won't want to miss clowning around in photos of a marvelous painting of the barrel house.

    I have never heard of High West Distillery. I am surprised that it is in Utah.

    A bit surprised Demerara Distillers in Guyana, the home of El Dorado rum is not on this list. It is an amazing experience combining tradition and technology, and the hospitality of the Guyanese people is really amazing. Guyana is on the eastern tip of South America with an abundance of fresh water and sugar came, it's rum is one of the most awarded in the world.

    You guys are definitely missing some gems. What about the Jameson distillery in Ireland? The Suntory Yamazaki distillery in Japan? That one in particular is my favorite simply becauseiit's nestled in a bamboo forest and they have an incredibly large whiskey library they maintain of whiskeys from around the world. Most definitely wortha visit!

    Buffalo Trace..? Anyone..?

  • Valerie Adcock posted 4 years ago

    Pardon me, but, where is the Jack Daniel's Distillery? I think it should be on this list, too. I am sure many people have visited, but, I am sure there are many who haven't. I have been a few times. It is a very nice tour. It is free. Since the county is dry there are no tastings but you can have free lemonade or coffee. You can buy an keepsake bottle from the store but not on Sundays. The people in Tennessee are very hospitable. Come to Tennessee and see. It's beautiful and friendly here in the south.
