A really nice place to visit for a hour or so. You learn a lot about their history and the staff has a lot of knowledge about their bourbon products.

Fabulous place on the Bourbon Trail to learn and have a better understanding of bourbon. Our guide was Bill, he's the best, very knowledgeable. Tasted great bourbons. Will definitely return and take friends.

This attraction is a very nice overview of the rich history of bourbon production in Kentucky. It's primarily a series of dioramas that allow the visitor to get a sense of the way the distillers grew from a series of small family businesses to the major producers of today. However the most valuable part of this visit is the ability... More

Highly recommend taking a trip down the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Heaven Hill is one of many along the trail and can be toured in a single trip or combined with other distillers in the area. Be sure to ask how the Devils Cut is extracted and bottled. Then take the option of washing your own bottle with Bourbon of course... More

This is a really big company, and it shows in how they conduct their "tour". We sat in a conference room, watched a video, and had a taste of their product. Never saw any of the actual workings like at the other places we visited. The personnel were nice, but I certainly wouldn't go back.

Nice visit. The person at the "tour desk" was able to get us in to the presentation at the last minute. We did not visit the distillery but just did a quick walking tour and taste. The tasting room was VERY small but then it was just added. It was a small room - so commit to this (everyone else... More

We didn't take a tour, but rather did a tasting. We were able to try a couple of products we had never even heard of and found one we liked. We kept this as a pretty quick stop on a day when we did 2 other distilleries from the bourbon trail.

I love to go to distilleries and breweries wherever I go. This time it was a "purpose" trip to complete the entries on the Bourbon Trail. All the venues, except Evan Williams, are out in the country so it takes a while to get to them but the country is beautiful and worth the ride. This was a terrific venue.Beautiful... More

My group and I were on a time crunch and the lovely people there at Heaven Hill switched some things around just so we could squeeze in the quick $15 tour. Our tour guide, a wonderful older woman, was SO full of knowledge and able to answer every question we had and some we didn't! As this was our second... More

This is one of the few distilleries we have not visited. We visited this day looking forward to a tour. Unfortunately they do not many tours here. What they do have is tours of the visitor center and tastings. Both of which are very good. The tour is informative and you get to taste some very good bourbons.
