Heaven Hill acquired the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville in 1999. This facility was built in 1992 and is quite modern. The distilled whiskey is transported to Bardstown where it is barreled, aged, and finally bottled. There are aging warehouses on this site, but more about those later. Heaven Hill maintains a beautiful visitors center in Bardstown where they give tours and testing’s. The Bernheim distillery is not generally open to the public.
