I'm not a bourbon drinker. But, I really enjoyed the tasting room, the tour and the information re: American Bourbon. Our guide was well informed and he took time to explain and answer any questions we had. The tasting room is modern and clean. You...More

Here is another distillery which advertises bourbon tasting but when you get inside the visitor center they told us there are no tastings. However, there was plenty of spirits to purchase but I know it’s cheaper to make my purchases back home in Texas because...More

After you tour half a dozen distilleries, you kind of have the Bourbon-making story memorized. We didn’t intend to do the full tour here, but so glad we did. While they don’t do any distilling on site, they age a bourbon for several different companies....More

We did not take the tour due to time constrictions. We had already taken tours at 3 other distilleries and did not want the tasting. The museum was very interesting. I never realized so many of my favorite bourbons started being distilled over 200 years...More

This is a little different from the other distillery tours, in that you're not seeing the whole process. There is a large exhibit area about the history of the industry and that is very interesting. Our tour guide was very good, because he had a...More

We had a great time even with the bad weather (Harvey) The tasting was full of information to us as first time distillery visitors and we really got a lot out of it.

Informative tour, and of course samples at the end! The Heritage Center is a wealth of information about bourbon, and in particular, the Heavenhill family and their bourbon. We had a great tour guide, added personal footnotes which made it more interesting. We took the...More

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
