We did the Whiskey Connoisseur tour and was not disappointed. We learned so much and enjoyed the tastings. Their gift shop is one of the best!

Visited Heaven Hill on a day out to Bardstown, pleased we did. Very interesting and informative tour. I personally don't like bourbon but tried the testing. Alan was a superb guide with a great sense of humour.

We went on the whiskey premium tour. Definitely worth it. Very good bourbon that is rare or higher quality. Alan was a great host! Very much smaller group.

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
