We did the Connoisseur Tasting at Heaven Hill. It was a great experience. Facility is beautiful with old pictures in the heritage hall. Our guide, Kathleen, was friendly and funny. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, thank you!

They charged us $25 each to sample 4 different bourbons in a very small room. The Bourbons were very tasty and the guide was very knowledgeable and made it a lot of fun. Unfortunately there was no tour of any of the barrel houses or the distillery itself. Certainly not worth $25.

This was our 2nd stop on the Bourbon Trail. The heritage center was set up really nice and the gift shop was great. The tour on the other hand was pretty lame. Started out with a video and then a short walk to a rick house. Guide was very knowledgeable but the tour was lacking in enthusiasm and spirit. If... More

We arrived just in time for the last tasting of the day. They were great at explaining the differences in the bourbons and how water and or ice can really change the taste of the bourbon. It was very informative and interesting learning the history of bourbon. After the tasting we spent quite a bit of time and money in... More

We followed the bourbon trail to Heaven Hill and it was great. They have a very nice gift shop and we took a short tour. They had a few to choose from starting at $5.00 and going up from there. There was a bourbon tasting at the end of each tour. Our tour guide was very nice and the tasting... More

Nowhere in the name does it say "distillery tour" so for everyone who thinks this will take you to a distillery you have been informed. I remember when this was brand new and free. You could see the film, see the exhibits, and taste some lovely bourbons gratis. Not anymore. They have jumped on the bandwagon and now charge varying... More

I would love to Thank the SalesLadies at the store. They were most helpful in finding the items that I needed "Fighting Cock Bourbon" . I didn't take the tour and it was a pleasure talking and laughing with ladies working there. Thank You Ladies and Thank You Heaven Hill. I shall return in July.

Something so Organic about this beautiful Welcome Center. You cease to be a spectator to the historty of Bourbon Distilling and become immersed in the experience instead. The aesthetically pleasing atmoshphere just makes you want to stay and when you have to leave you want to return.
