Excellent history of Bourbon and the Heaven Hill history. Beautiful center, nice souvenirs, great bourbon! Easy trip down the Bluegrass Parkway. Surrounded by beautiful farmland, cattle, horses, and the city of Bardstown.

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.

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
