If you’re not thirsty before you arrive at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, you will be as soon as you see the giant whiskey glass fountain in the lobby. This interactive bourbon tourism attraction celebrates Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first commercial distiller and the namesake of Heaven Hill’s flagship brand.
You’ll see a working artisanal still that produces one barrel of bourbon per day, then sample Heaven Hill products in one of two bars: one modeled in the 1890s style, the other straight out of Mad Men. A Speakeasy room in the basement, entered through a faux safe door, can be rented for special events.
