Wow! Great interesting and down to earth place! Kathleen was informative polite and made us feel like she's known us our whole lives. Even if you are not a bourbon drinker this place is a must stop! Thanks again Kathleen for everything.

My wife and I took a side trip to Bardstown and stopped at Heaven Hill's Bourbon Heritage Center and had the most fun time and met the most wonderful people, while learning the nuances of great Bourbon. It was more than worth the time and was one of our favorite experiences on this trip! It is definitely a must-see!!!

Very nice venue, very nice building. The tour was of a ricket house and back to the tasting room. Our tour guide did a great job and was very knowledgable. We tasted 4 bourbons, one that was very expensive, $140 a bottle. The tasting room is nice and so is the reception building; many things to see about the history... More

Our tour guide, Allen, gave us the history, current stats and vision for the future of Heaven Hill Distillery, all in a friendly and inviting presentation. This is southern hospitality at its finest. Allen knows Bourbon and will lead you on a Bourbon journey second to none.

Our group from PA was reluctant to do the experience because we needed to head home following our time at Heaven Hill. We'd already taken 3 tours and were really just interested in the tasting. Joan's knowledge and passion for the history of Kentucky distilling and the bourbon's we tasted was simply wonderful. It's likely an easy job product is... More

Friends and I visited here last weekend. We joined the Conosuir tour, which was short on tour but great for the more high dollar tastings. We tasted four shots. One was from a $245/bottle bourbon. Another was my favorite: the $141/bottle Cognac Barrel bourbon. So good! The tour was $20/person. Joan was a nice guide.

Attended the last tour of the day with a group of 6; we opted for the connoisseur tour with Alan. Great experience - Alan was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing for an hour with his southern sense of humor. Really enjoyed the Elijah Craig 23 yr which was the highlight of the tasting - real surprise that a $280... More

My husband and I went on the tour. I believe Bill was our tour guide. There was another couple from Ohio. My husband and myself. We went into the big Rickhouse... Saw all the barrels on the first floor. Seven floors total with the longest aged up above. Very interesting! Everyone super nice! Worth the trip and tour. The tasting... More

I didn't spend much time at Heaven Hill and missed the tour. It is a pretty large main building. They have a wide variety of bourbons for sale and a wing of memorabilia and information about the history of bourbon.
