The tours feature the laboratory for Ferm Solutions, fermentation and distilling areas for the distillery that produces Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, Blue Heron Vodka and Bourbon barrel-aged Harvest Rum. Guests receive a souvenir Glencairn. That right there is enough reason to sign up!
