Bourbon, Things to Do

A Stop on the Bourbon Trail: Heaven Hill

In the same weekend that we went to Maker’s Mark (which I mentioned in a post earlier this week), we decided to go to Heaven Hill, since it was approximately 18 miles away from Maker’s Mark. Heaven Hill is in Bardstown, Kentucky and is around 65 miles, if you are coming straight from Lexington. Bardstown is Kentucky’s second oldest city and was named one of the best small towns in America. Bardstown has been the site of bourbon distilleries since 1776 and is known as the ‘Bourbon Capital of the World.’

Heaven Hill offers two different tours; the Mashbill Tour and the Whiskey Connoisseur Experience. We decided to do something different and take the Connoisseur Experience tour, because we are already very familiar with the process of making bourbon. However, if you are not and the whole bourbon making process is new to you, then I would highly suggest you take the other tour (Note: Heaven Hill is aged and bottled in Bardstown, but it is distilled in Louisville).
