Best Kentucky Distillery Tour?

My Aunt and Uncle will be travelling to KY in April and asked which distillery they should tour. I've never been to KY. They are not big bourbon fans but want to visit a distillery. I’m a huge bourbon fan so my choice of a distillery would be based more on what I could purchase while there but they are more into the scenic surroundings they can enjoy. I know some of you have done the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and could provide a suggestion on distillery they may enjoy touring. I’m so excited for them (I wish I was going). I suggested the Buffalo Trace Distillery since it received the Whisky Visitor Attraction of the Year for 2010 as voted by Whisky Magazine. Any other suggestions?

I am from Kentucky but the only distillery I have visited is Maker's Mark. It was a great time and a great way to begin my bachelor party. It is a scenic patch with great woods all around. There is a small museum and the tour is fantastic. You can even dip your own bottle in the famous red wax. Also, being from Louisville, I must recomend a trip to Churchill Downs. The museum is awesome even in the off-season. Lots to do in Louisville.

@JJBoud Thanks for the feedback. I think they mentioned touring Makers Mark since it's up the road from one of the Bed & Breakfasts at which they are staying. They are interested in touring a Horse farm and the Amish and Mennonite communities. I'll definitely tell them not to miss Churchhill Downs.
