The distillery has been in operation since 1911 and is registered on the U.S. National Historic Society for its Spanish Mission architecture reminiscent of a country villa. Four Roses Bourbon has been described as "gentle on the palate with hints of fruit, vanilla and caramel, possessing a long smooth finish." Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon was awarded Whisky Magazine's prestigious "Best of the Best" competition in 2005 for the Best American whiskey under 10 years of age. Visitors may sample this award winning Bourbon when they visit the Four Roses Distillery.

1525 Tyrone Rd.
Tour the "official" nest of America's best bourbon located high above the Kentucky River in Tyrone. With a history that dates to the mid-1800s, Wild Turkey Bourbon is world renowned as truly singular bourbon. Distilled from limestone-filtered waters on the property, this process creates a smooth intense flavor that distinguishes this bourbon from others. The "Wild Turkey" brand name comes from a distillery executive who treated his annual turkey hunting friends to a sample from the warehouse. In subsequent years, his friends insisted he bring "that Wild Turkey bourbon" along on their hunts.
Free tours on the hour. Monday - Saturday. Call for tour times.

1103 Dylan Drive (just 1/4 mile north of Hwy 151 & US 127 behind Tony's Barn)
The Bauer family has a tradition of passing down the mastery of candy making through the years, generation after generation. Until Anna Bauer Satterwhite, the current owner of the Bauer's candy factory, the business had been passed down only to the Bauer sons. Modjeskas are still made the old fashioned way with heavy, pure ingredients. No shortcuts are ever taken.
The internationally acclaimed candy, known as the "Modjeska", was named after a famed queen of the European stage. Her appearance in Kentucky impressed a patron, a local candy maker, so much he named his candy after her. Prior to this, the piece was known as "The Caramel Biscuit", a heavenly morsel produced with the finest ingredients. Since that day, the "Modjeska" has been exclusively produced, and to this day only the finest ingredients are used in this age-old tradition.
