We did a Connoisseur tasting here. The cost was $20 each but well worth it. At the end the gift shop had some of the more rare bourbons or sale. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly.

We took an abbreviated tour due to our short timeline. They were most friendly and accommodating. We had a great time and only regret that we didn’t have more time. I’d recommend the tour to anyone.

Enjoyed our tour of the rickhouse. Lots of great information. Tasting after was great in the largest bourbon barrel. Learned a lot of interesting things. Becky was a great guide. Visitor center has tons of information and great photos. A must see when in Bardstown.

We stopped at Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Center on a Sunday afternoon, too late for a tour but just in time for a tasting. Miss Holly was extremely knowledgeable, and answered additional questions following the tasting. The entire staff was welcoming and gracious.
