That actually works for the best. If memory serves, the Jack Daniels Distillery is in a dry county and they can't legally serve samples there.

Unfortunately, no free samples. They won't even let you take your cellphone camera inside with you. Think airport security on steroids.

They do sell uncut sheets of bills in their gift shop.

Then go to Brenham, TX and do the BlueBell tour. Unfortunately, not open on weekends, and I was there on a Saturday. I understand that they do give samples.

There is a fairly new distillery between Worland and Thermopolis Wyoming (Wyoming Whiskey). They apparently offer tours. One of these days I'll do that when I'm driving by. It's a nice looking facility from the highway.

That lets me out. When I go to the airport, or even to the courthouse for jury duty, I have to bring a note from my doctor about the metal pins in both feet in order to get through security. I would set off metal detectors even if I stripped to my skivvies!

Makers Mark and Wild Turkey do. The Bourbon Trail Tour is definitely worth the time. My 87 year old dad doesn't drink either, but he enjoyed the tour. I drank his samples.

Good idea.
I have been by Ben & Jerry's, but haven't taken a tour.
Where was it? New Hampshire? I don't remember.

Toured the Maker's Mark distillery in Kentucky. I was very disappointed. They wouldn't give out samples.

That is correct. You won't get a product sample there. The irony- whiskey being manufactured in a dry county-

Dr. Pepper museum in Waco, TX is the original factory for that product. Interesting to visit. Shows how they used to do it.

Ooooohhhh Dr. Pepper museum. Gotta do that one! I always say; "a day without Dr. Pepper isn't worth living".
