Allen was the best tour guide. He was a great story teller. And on top of that is very knowledgeable of the different types of Bourbons. He also taught us also how taste bourbon correctly. Will go again

I stopped in here on my way back to Louisville- I didn't realise the extent of their portfolio or the sheer size of the operation! I took the tour with Holly, who was a delight- very, very knowledgeable and really friendly. There were only two other people, so we were able to have nice conversations about the process and an...

If you're in the area, it's worth the visit. We just did the tasting and I thought it was a little pricey compared to the other distilleries we visited. Kathleen was our host and she made the tasting a lot of fun with her enthusiasm and knowledge.

Another great tour. Guide was very informative and very much into his job. You can tell when someone does something because they want to vs someone who does something because they have to. We all enjoyed this your.

This was not my first visit. Although they have a wonderful tasting experience and interesting interactive information areas about Heaven Hill, they also have many gift options. My visit was for some last minute unique Christmas presents. Love the variety - everything from bourbon, clothing, glassware, candles and more. Will be back again and recommend to others if ever in... More

Susan McCray made our day! She gave us an informative, relaxed tour. This was not our first distillery tour, but, was the best. Our guide, Susan, was easy to understand, knowledgeable, and patient with us. I highly recommend this stop on your Bourbon Trail tour. The gift shop is wonderful. We were favorably impressed.

I really loved this tour because it's a nice change up from the others. It's short and informative. It's in a tiny museum with very little walking. You can taste a bunch of great bourbon and buy rare bourbon as well. Allen is sweet and funny and a great guide! Thanks for accommodating us!!

Very well designed layout with average bourbon selection from heaven hill. They usually have some distillery only bottles. The price is usually about 50% higher than local places for bottles. Do the premium tastings for sure! Very helpful staff!
