Nice place that offered lots of interesting information

Heaven Hill's Bourbon Heritage Center was a nice facility and they offered lots of educational info about the ins & outs of distilling different types of spirits.

This was our third to HH Boufbon Center. Each time I have enjoyed talking to the hosts. They are very willing to talk about their product and have even tracked me down to answer or further answer a question. A great place to visit. My favorite is Evan Williams Single Barrel.

A very interesting tour with knowledgeable tour guides makes this distillery stand out. The bourbon tasting at the end was also a good time, even though I am still not a fan of the stuff. I couldn't NOT try it after learning about all the time and care that goes into making it. Kentucky proud!

Came with a group to learn about the Bourban business in Kentucky. Even though I am a non-drinker, it was an interesting tour. This is the first time I knew what a Rack House was and how barrels of whiskey age. Several in my group participated in the tasting room. It was interesting to watch their expressions as they sampled.... More

This part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour was interesting. Just finding the center was a little challenging. Just look for the building with a copper roof...it's a little off from the main distillery buildings. There are two tours available: the normal one which includes a film about bourbon and the connoisseur tour. I recommend the connoisseur tour if you... More

Very nice gift shop and visitors center. Many interesting and informative displays on the history of bourbon and how it is made. Nice tasting room, learned a lot more about tasting and drinking bourbon. Definitely worth the stop.

We took the Whiskey Connoisseur Tour which allowed you tasting of 4 bourbons including 3 of their most limited/expensive two of which are gift shop exclusives and one is the Elijah Craig 23 so the tour is well worth the $25. If it were a true whiskey connoisseur tour I wish it would have gone more in depth as I... More

We took the shorter more expensive tour and really enjoyed it. We have been on most of the Bourbon tour so we didn't need another explanation. This tour tastes more expensive bottles of bourbon. $249 bottle. Great bourbon!!
