We did this tour years ago before they started charging and before they cut back on parts of the tour. Went again a few years later and they now charge a pretty good amount and the tour isn't much at all. Save your money. Others in area that are better and don't charge

My wife and I stopped here on 4/8/14 as part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and to be honest, there isn't much to the tour. All of the distilling and bottling is done at another location and the tour consists of an informational film, a walkthrough of one of the storage warehouses, and a tasting. The bourbons they offer to... More

We took the quick tour. We watched a video first which was real informative. Then we walked through the center and asked a few questions. At the end, we did the tasting. It was nice.

On our journey to Makers Mark Distillery, we came upon Heavenly Hill and decided to stop~so happy we did. While they offered tours, we had one planned later that day at Makers Mark, so decided to just enjoy the heritage center. The center had a wonderful history of Kentucky bourbon and the displays were well done. If you are interested,... More

This was the first distillery we stopped in on our Bourbon Trail exploration day. We stopped in after sort of exploring Bardstown a little on our own. I wish we had stopped in the distillery first. Among their tour offerings was a narrated trolley tour around town. We saw the trolley as we were walking by the Civil War Museum... More

Awesome history lesson in the making of bourbon. This is a can't miss on the bourbon road tour. The tour was very educational and professionally run. Military are free which is nice and I am very appreciative of the respect and honor they show our veterans and Soldiers. Thanks team.

Heaven Hill is Evan Williams, so if you've seen the Evan Williams Experience, then this tour and tasting is more of the same. The bourbon is very delicious - my husband and I bought a few bottles - but the tour is a bit lackluster and not as complete or interesting as some other distilleries in the region. Anyway, if...

We were completing the 8 distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and needed to visit Heaven Hill (makers of Evan Williams) to get our passports stamped but decided to skip the tour because we knew we had to also visit the Evan Williams Experience in Louisville. This is a really nice facility with a great gift shop and informative history... More

I'm not a huge fan of bourbon to begin with but this tour was fascinating. You start with a trolly ride of Bardstown for some local information then back to the center. There a friendly guide educates you all about the history and production of bourbon with a sampling at the end. Bardstown is a small town with not much... More
