Not all of it. We hit Woodford & Maker's Mark on the way home from vacation in October. We were pressed for time and chose those two based upon the recommendations of friends who had done the trail the year before. We enjoyed both. After one distillery tour, the second had a lot of repetitive stuff, but it was interesting to note the differences. The difference in histories was also interesting.

The drives past the huge horse farms getting to them were almost worth the trip by themselves. Beautiful. I would like to go back with more time to visit the ones we missed. The distilleries are pretty spread out, but you could probably do two in a day with adequate planning.

Side effect: Those stops increased my subsequent consumption (and enjoyment) of bourbon.
