The Heaven Hill Heritage Center is the best!! They are located close to the town of Bardstown and a treasure! It's a classy, upscale visit to find out the history of bourbon making and history. One of the last "family owned" distilleries in the industry!!...More

Very interesting and informative tour. It is not a full distillery tour as there is only ageing and bottling going on at this site. The distilling portion of the tour is pretty boring. Sampling was nothing special other than the instruction. Learned a new trick...More

We had a very informative guide. He was very proud to work for the company. I will say this tour was more like a museum than the traditional distillery tour. They have spent a great deal of money on the history, gift shop, and tasting...More

We booked the $20/person tour thinking it would involve more than a PowerPoint presentation on the history of the distilled and four bourbons that were just ok. I would say to save your money and head to makers mark or Jim Beam for a much...More

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
