Jack Daniel's tour in Lynchburg...anyone ever go?

My brother in law are really wanting to make a visit to whiskey country in Lynchburg, TN.

I'm sure somebody here has made the trip in a class A for the tour and the surrounding Lynchburg area attractions.

What am I in for and ANY tips/advice is very welcome.

Also, my mother is in a power chair. I hope this is something she can participate in...

We did tour a couple months ago. Did not take our coach but there is RV/bus parking. Basic tour is free and there is an add on for about ten bucks that gives you a chance to sample three or four products and learn more about JD. The entire tour is not suitable for anyone that can't climb stairs. There may be an abbreviated tour available but I would call to confirm. There is a co store where you can buy various products and if you wish get the bottle custom engraved

Makers Mark is near by. It is a small distillery. As I remember there are no stairs, but look them up on the web and give them a call to ask. The roads around the county where a lot of distilleries are located are very narrow. I would use a towed auto. Barton Distillery is located at 501 Cathedral Manor, Bardstown, KY. Hours 9-3. The tour is about 1 hour. Barton's Reserve is a blended whisky that is so close to Seagram's VO at about 1/2 the cost.

In KY, I recommend taking the Bourbon Trail and visit a list of distilleries.

We stayed in Nashville and drove the tow car to Jack Daniels. As mentioned above there is bus/RV parking but not a lot of space if memory serves me correctly. It is a great tour but there are steps and a lot of walking. Check out this site: http://www.jackdaniels.com/visit

We went on the tour two years ago and paid for the upgraded tour. There aren't that many stairs. There are a couple of buildings that are two story that you have to walk up and then down. The upgraded tour includes a sit down at the end where they have you sample a 1/3rd of ounce of three different blends. They can only legally allow you to taste 1 ounce total.

There is a neat store where you can have your company logo, name etc, engraved on a bottle of your choice. It was very interesting and well worth it. I would try and drive a toad there rather than a large RV.

Here's something very few people know and JD won't tell you. They have a special room where JD landowners can visit. You must be a landowner and ask to be taken to the room. The land consists of one inch square parcels that have been acquired by people over the years. I don't recall how our friends got theirs. The room is filled filled with memorabilia that landlords bring/donate, such as tiny fences for their property. If it's your first visit as a landlord, they give you.... I think it was a mug.

Went there last year, one of the best tours we've been on. We took our toad, parking wasn't a problem. They do have accessable tours. The distillery is in a dry county, but they get around that by selling you a bottle, if it happens to contain a liquid, so be it.

We did the tour a couple of years ago. It was very nice. I recommend it. Wish I went when the flowers were in bloom.

Plenty of RV parking in the City Park on the south side of the square. We have carried as many as 10 motorhomes at one time and everyone had plenty of room in the City Park. If you plan ahead, lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House is a "Must Do" (Reservations are required most days). A walk around the square is very entertaining and it is a short walk to the distillery.

We do the tour every 2-3 years, and Lynchburg is a very picturesque little town. The countryside is also very beautiful with zero crime and 100% employment. Tims Ford Dam is about 7 miles south and there's a state park with campsites. Tullahoma is about 10 miles east, and it's the nearest wet county. George Dickel is the other large close by distillery (north of Tullahoma,) however it's a much smaller operation than JD. This is a very good stop for those going to Florida from the Midwest.
