You’ll find inspiration for your own home renovations after exploring the remodeled Woodford Reserve Distillery visitor center.  Check out the dedicated tasting room with brand new furniture and displays, an expanded foodservice counter, upgrades to the retail shop, lighting improvements, and enhancements to the overall aesthetics. Pull up a copper stool, sip on delicious bourbon, and take in the panoramic view of the scenic distillery grounds. Relax in the lounge area and enjoy the fireplace with copper detail that separates the lounge area from the tasting room, and think of the amazing upgrades you could install in your own home to recreate the tranquil ambience.

See the different ways repurposed wood can be used to create amazing pieces of furniture while sitting around the tables in the visitor center and tasting room, which were made with reclaimed wood from a barn at the distillery. Also, the coffee tables in the main area of the visitor center are built from a cypress vat once used at the distillery. From the incredible copper pieces, to the repurposed wood furniture, you’ll be bursting with ideas for your own tasting room at home.

One of the fastest-growing premium bourbons, Woodford Reserve was introduced in 1996 and the visitor center opened in the same year. Now you can see how much the center has changed and enjoy the comfort and class of the new tasting experience. Located off McCracken Pike in Versailles, Kentucky, the Woodford Reserve Distillery is easily accessible as one of the locations on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.  So, begin working on planning your own tasting room at Design Home 2014 and then head down to Kentucky to find even more inspiration at the beautifully renovated Woodford Reserve Distillery.
