Great historical display. Nice gift shop. Since Heaven Hill lost its distilling operation in a devastating fire in November 1996, there are no Distillery tours on site. They do tours of the grounds, Rick houses and other parts of the facility and they do tastings,...More

The visitor center has plenty of informative displays related to the making of bourbon, etc. The gift shop was one of the best I've seen at a distillery. Extremely friendly staff. We didn't go on a tour as we had our dog, but the grounds...More

When you are on the Bourbon Trail do not skip this place. The Heritage Center is full of history as well as all kinds of things to buy. Great tasting as well.

Enjoyed the tasting here---very informative with great and tasty selections. Took their time explaining how to taste --for example----the addition of 1-2 drops of water--to "open" up the Bourbon can make a world of difference to the palate.. Definitely recommend when on the Bourbon trail..

Although this is not a distillery tour it was very educational and we would recommend this as a starting spot if more tours are planned. The connoisseur experience was well worth it.

How does this one compare to the Evan Williams bourbon tour in Louisville? We only have time for one tour.

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
