One of the best tours in Kentucky. Sign up for the tasting tour. You won't be disappointed. We learned a great deal about the different types of bourbon and about the business.

What an awesome way to start our day. The staff is wonderful and happy to answer questions and offer up amazing stories of bourbon history. The tasting experience was excellent and we were fortunate enough to arrive on the release day for a wonderful single barrel Elijah!!

I took part in the Whisky Connoisseur tour that takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Allen was in charge of our tour and he was both knowledgeable and engaging. During the tasting you given four different bourbons to sample. I also wanted to purchase a birthday gift for my sisters husband and the workers at the gift shop took the time to... More

We took the tasting tour and sampled 4 different bourbons. They let us keep the tasting glasses as souvenirs. The gentleman that did the presentation seemed to know his stuff. Very informative. They also have a store with all sorts of sauces,spices, apparel, cook books, barware...nice selection. I chose the smoked roasted red pepper, as I've had it before and... More

Our best friends, my husband, and I visited on a hot July Saturday. We toured with Carolyn who was lovely. We took the Mashbill tour which lasted an hour. The tour gives a good overview of the bourbon making process. The facility has exhibits which give much information about bourbon making and the history of the company which you can... More

We were able to do a bourbon sample/tasting and skip the tour here. They make some great stuff here. I really liked the Henry McKena (sp?). The gentleman running the tasting was very friendly and super knowledgeable about their products.

We chose this tour to sample the different Bourbons bottled at Heaven Hill. It was an interesting tasting, as the 4 Varieties were out of the ordinary. Only problem was that they didn't have them available for sale! Well worth the visit.

Ask for Yvonne or Holly! They were fantastic tour guides and tasting experts! Learned so much about the history of bourbon. The tastings were excellent as well. Fun and educational!

My first tour of a distillery, and I really enjoyed it. There is so much information presented on the tour of the whole distilling process and the time involved. In the tour center there is also an excellent exhibit of how the process works for those visual learners.

The Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Center was one of our--my wife and me--first stops on the Bourbon Trail, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. First, they have one of the largest, best-stocked, bourbon-oriented gift shops in Kentucky (or anywhere in the world I'd guess.) The gift shop alone is worth a stop. Heaven Hill is also one of the big... More
