Great stop on your Bourbon tour!

Nice distillary with a very nice tour. Tasting session was excellent done in a small group with lots of information and knowledge sharing. Very relaxing and worth repesting.

What a wonderful history our great nation was built on - George Washington was a distiller, It was my privilege to be at Heaven Hills Distillery. I buy Elijah Craig - for me to be on a tasting tour and see where this wonder nectar from the gods is made- such an honor. I had no idea where Elijah Craig... More

This is a standout on the trail. Very interesting, great tour guide and of course the tasting was the highlight. The grounds were beautiful and the staff were friendly and very proud of their product. Really enjoyed our visit.

Even though we couldn't tour the actual distillery due to bad weather, the information about Kentucky bourbons was excellant! Tour lasted about 45min including a tasting of 4 types of their long list of bourbons.

My wife and I really enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide Paul was very informative and the history of Heaven Hill's history. Really wish there was a distillery on site but overall a very enjoyable tour.

The museum was interesting. We took the Mashbill tour which included a tour of one of the rick houses and a bourbon tasting. Great tour guide.

I loved this tour. We did the connoisseur and our guide was very informative. We learned a lot about the different bourbons and got to taste some very expensive bourbons

We'd heard plenty about the process of making Bourbon, so we appreciated the upscale tasting without the tour. The staff is top notch and we had fun talking football with the guest host. It was even better to share the experience with some new, local, friends.

The Heritage Center is very interesting in a way that other Bourbon Trail tours are not. Because of the catastrophic fire in the 1990s that destroyed the distillery, Heaven Hill now distills their bourbon in Louisville and just warehouses it in Bardstown. The Heritage Center offers a couple of different tours. One tour isa standard tour where they tell you... More
