The customer center was nice and they were able to easily accommodate us for a tour. The tour guide was friendly and gave great information. We did not realize how many different brands fall under the Heaven Hill name. The tasting room was pretty cool.

My wife and I opted for the premium tasting for $20, skipping the tour. The tasting included some very good bourbons, including one that's $129 a bottle.

We stop here every time we are in Bardstown. Heaven Hill has so many brands of bourbon that this is the place to keep up with their new releases. I was able to pick up a barrel-proof Elijah Craig as well as a 12 year...More

We had a very good tour of bourbons and whiskeys. We were late for the tour. They accommodated us, since we were the only ones there. Very informative and interesting. Not for kids.

I enjoyed their tour immediately and was surprised to see they distill many brands in one place. Care was given to delineating the different makeup of American whiskey from corn to various grains. I came away with a liking of rye but was opened up...More

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
