great bourbon history

even if you don't want to pay for a tour and tasting, they have a wonderful display of the history of bourbon and the bourbon industry that is free and entertaining.

Knowledgable tour guides and fantastic products set this tour apart from all the rest. Heaven Hill is still family owned & operated, US owned & operated. A must-do on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail!

Kathleen is the best. Nice tour! Nice bourbon. Off to the bottle shop. Try the select stock or the Bernheim which is the only wheaten bourbon.

We started with a few minutes on history, then Holly took us to a private tasting room (about 6 couples in our group) and we learned about and tasted 4 of their higher end bourbons. We had an absolutely wonderful... More

Paul rocked, he was fun! And had an awesome personality. They don't have a distillery, but if your doing the trail, they all look the same so it was a good break up of the monotony.
