Woodford Reserve and Buffalo Trace are both about that distance. Ditto Wild Turkey.

Strongly recommend Makers Mark, even if it's a bit outside your preferred range.

Might need to go check one of the local distilleries out if we can squeeze it in. On a bit of a tight schedule this year.

If anybody planned on going to makers mark I just found this, "
Quote:
Distillery production will shut down (still house only) from August 7th - September 7th for maintenance. Tours and bottling will not be affected. They will run as usual.
So with being said I think I will pass and check the local ones out. Anybody want to get a group together and make a trip?

I'd be interested in taking a drive to Buffalo Trace, which makes Blanton's.

I spent some time around the Toyota plant (Georgetown KY). and on weekends I'd go tour plants. Jim Beam is got a nice visitors center, but Makers is THE place you want to go.

You would take it personally and need to set them straight. In a respectful manner of course.

I am in for a Makers Mark tour. I may not have a car so if someone needs a rider companion, count me in. As a matter of fact I don't fly out until Tuesday evening. So I would love to go on another tour (at distillery by 11am) so that I can make my 5pm flight out. You can't go to Kentucky and not go on a distillery tour in my opinion. I went to Woodford Reserve this spring and now I want to add more to the list.

Sorry. Whisky, Whiskey, Bourbon, Shine its all good. I should have known better. But by technical standards it is a "whiskey". It's just called bourbon because of Bourbon County, where oddly no bourbon is made today. What makes bourbon, tennessee whiskey, rye whiskey, etc. is it's filtration, proof and so on. You i can tell know this though.
