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.

We loved Holly, our tour guide, who did an amazing job. She was so funny and very passionate about bourbon, which made the experience. The Parker Beam tasting room is awesome and we got to try a good variety of Heaven Hill bourbons.

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
