A very interesting site. Several tours to choose from and allot of historical information on the history of Bourbon distilling. I advise getting a reservation for the tour you prefer. Tours at all the Bourbon Trail distilleries fill up before the day of your visit.

Maybe I am wrong here but if you want people to buy your product and if they have to spend good money for your good products then it would make sense to me to have tasting available with out a tour. There were no tours...More

Very nice facility and gift shop. The premium tasting let's you try their best Bourbons. Tasting room has a little informational video that is informative and the display areas is worth taking the time to read.

If you have this on your Bourbon Trail plan, drop it. They don’t make anything near here. All you see is a video and then you get to taste their most expensive products before they turn you loose in their store.

In an attempt to keep up with all the new Distilleries in the area, they are renovating the whole place. As a result, the tasting room is in the old break room for employees. The “tour” consists of a rickhouse across the street. Our tour...More

Becky was our guide through the tasting process and she has a wealth of knowledge that she shared with us. If possible, I suggest going through on a weekday for a more personal tour. We had an excellent time!

Very informative and fun tour. Our tour guide Becky was great. Great knowledge of bourbon and history on the tour. Saw a rickhouse for bourbon storage. The taste of 5 bourbon was fun and informative. Learned the Kentucky chew to taste bourbon.

Heaven Hill Distillery is set in an idyllic Kentucky landscape. Surrounded by beautiful green fields and touched by the angels in Heaven. Holly, our tour guide, was quite charming and made our bourbon trail experience one for the memory books. The history is enchanting and...More

You want the tour and tasting. To taste the 20 y.o. Old Fitzgerald that can only be purchased in the gift store you will need to take the Connoisseur tasting. Enjoy.

This depends on what you are looking for. If you want to go to a Rickhouse, then the Heritage Center is the place (not to mention that the tasting afterwards is in a cool looking room). If you are interested in the history... More
