O.Z. Tyler Distillery

During ROMP, you can take the shuttle out to O.Z. Tyler Distillery to explore some of the rich history in Owensboro.  Recently opened to the public, tours through the distillery provide a behind-the-scenes look at how Kentucky bourbon whiskey is made.  After you’ve seen how it’s made, you’ll get to taste the end product in the speakeasy-style tasting room! The O.Z. Tyler shuttle will run between ROMP and the distillery throughout the festival.
