We paid $20 for a tour that consisted of a short movie about Heaven Hill and a bourbon tasting. There was NO tour. The four bourbons we tasted would cause no one to want to buy a bottle. One bourbon was an example of bourbon...More

We were able to do a bourbon sample/tasting and skip the tour here. They make some great stuff here. I really liked the Henry McKena (sp?). The gentleman running the tasting was very friendly and super knowledgeable about their products.

We chose this tour to sample the different Bourbons bottled at Heaven Hill. It was an interesting tasting, as the 4 Varieties were out of the ordinary. Only problem was that they didn't have them available for sale! Well worth the visit.

Ask for Yvonne or Holly! They were fantastic tour guides and tasting experts! Learned so much about the history of bourbon. The tastings were excellent as well. Fun and educational!

Wonderful selection of their items and whiskey. They would have gotten 5 stars if they had tasting separate from the tours.
