After so many distillery tours, I would recommend this as a great starting point. Especially if you're a READING learning style. The timeline displays along two walls are very helpful. And that's FREE! Other than that, there's a large gift shop, which is nice to...More

Even though two local agencies listed this place as a distillery tour, their distillery burned down 15 years ago. They give tours, but you sit in a room and sip Bourbon. Not a bad end in itself, but not a tour either. Their displays on...More

This was the first tour we took on Kentucky's Bourbon Trail. It was a combination of videos and the guide giving information. Our guide was a little hard to understand, but we still learned a lot. We tasted some very good bourbon.

A short drive off of the Bluegrass Parkway, this gem offers both an historic lesson on the area and how bourbon is made as well as a friendly staff who desire to share the rich tradition of Heaven's Hill. While there is no distillery on...More

Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Center is an awesome place to taste quality bourbon. Very different type of tour. You have time to taste some really good bourbon and discuss bourbon with your friends and others in the tasting. Can't wait to go back.

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
