Frequently Asked Questions
Is a tasting included for the tour or “A Taste of History” experiences?
Yes! A guided tasting of each of our products is included with each experience for guests over 21 years of age. Guests under 21 are permitted on the experience but will not participate in the tasting. A complimentary glass is our gift to each participant over the age of 21.
Should I book multiple experiences for each location?
No, our tour experience goes in-depth through our processes and showcases our distillery and grounds and lasts for about an hour. However, both our tour and “A Taste of History” experience include the history, information about our unique processes, and a guided tasting with keepsake glass. “A Taste of History” is an abbreviated experience lasting approximately 20 minutes and is meant as an alternative to the tour.
Do I need to make a reservation?
Reservations are STRONGLY recommended but walk- in traffic is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that we cannot guarantee availability without reservations, especially during high- traffic times and weekends. Reservations can be made online until midnight the day prior, but walk-ins only are accepted the day of the experience.
Are late arrivals permitted? What should I do if I can’t make the tour time?
We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your experience to allow for traffic and check-in times. Regretfully, we cannot admit guests who arrive late to avoid missing vital information and interruption of the experience for our other guests. If you will be late, please call the Visitor Centers directly and ask if you can reschedule your experience or if other accommodations can be made. Late arrivals do forfeit a refund. Please see our full cancellation policy in the link to reserve your experience.
Do you have more than one location?
Yes! Please be mindful when reserving your tour time that we have two facilities. Our historic Distillery, located in Lawrenceburg, is nestled near the scenic Salt River. A unique feature of Four Roses is that we have a separate Warehouse & Bottling Facility, located in quiet Cox’s Creek. Our facilities are located about 50 miles apart, so be sure when planning your visit that you allow ample travel time and are certain about the location you’ve booked.
Complimentary admission to the other facility tour is included with ticket pricing for 60 days after the date of your visit. Just keep your ticket and ask us how to make reservations.
How much Four Roses will I sample?
In order to be “mellow and responsible” sample sizes are served in total of 1.75 oz. to adhere to KY Liquor Laws.
Are children allowed on tour? What about my service animal or pet?
Children and families are welcome on tour, but those under 21 may not partake in our tasting. Water is offered in lieu of Bourbon in this instance and for those who choose not to drink. Service animals are welcome but may not be permitted in all areas of the tour. Pets are not permitted on the tour but are welcome to visit on the grounds.
Is your tour ADA accessible? Do you offer scripts or other options for the hearing impaired?
Each of our facility tours are ADA accessible. Scripting is provided for each tour and “A Taste of History” experience for the hearing impaired. We welcome you to call ahead or reach out to us with special requests so that we can make your visit most accommodating!
Do you serve cocktails?
Four Roses Distillery and Warehouse & Bottling Facilities do not currently offer cocktails as a part of our experiences.
Do you have a restaurant or event space onsite?
Regretfully, we do not have event space to support private events at this time, nor do we have a restaurant onsite. We’re happy to recommend some great local restaurants nearby to make your trip complete.
