Visit our historic distillery on the famed Kentucky Bourbon Trail
A KENTUCKY BOURBON TRAIL EXPERIENCE
Recently reopened to the public while we take full COVID-19 precautions, you can visit the Green River Distilling Co. (formerly O.Z. Tyler Distillery) for a behind the scenes look at how Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is made!
Fun Fact: Owensboro was once home to 18 unique distilleries. Today there are two remaining, but Green River Distilling Co. is the only one open to the public.
Grab a hand-crafted specialty drink from our cocktail lounge and get ready to learn all about whiskey. A tour of the historic Green River Distilling Co. covers every aspect of whiskey production, from grain to mash to beer to distillate to barrels of whiskey.
And after you’ve seen how it’s made, you’ll get to taste through our exquisite bourbon and rye whiskies with our resident experts in our tasting room.
Finally, no visit would be complete without a stroll through our on-site gift shop! Featuring Green River Distilling Co. branded hats, shirts, glassware, and much more, you’re sure to find a perfect gift for any bourbon lover (even if that person is yourself…go ahead, you deserve it).
If you really want to impress, don’t forget we can host your next private event! Check out the details here.

Please note: Our tours last approximately 60 minutes and are very much “behind the scenes.” Tours are given rain or shine and you will be walking around both the inside and outside of an active distillery. Depending on the time of year, the route may include wide temperature differences. Our tour currently requires all guests to walk up and down 3 flights of stairs and over some uneven ground. It can be noisy in the production areas and most buildings are not temperature controlled. Please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. We promise it is worth it!
