  • Once you think you know everything about Bourbon.. come here to learn more. The entire company and group are above board. These guys and gals are doing a quality product that you can taste. Everything here is done the right way.
  • It is fascinating to learn how quickly WT became a major Bourbon producer! Our tour guide is also a local teacher and is certainly suited for this position as well. The tasting confirmed the excellent craftsmanship WT pursues everyday. The relatively new facilities include an impressive gift shop, and lounging area.
