Tours & Attractions
Bently Heritage Estate Distillery creates ultra-premium spirits from grains that have been grown on the Bently Ranch here in Minden, Nevada. Our products elevate the connoisseur’s passion for luxury spirits, creating an experience that will be treasured for generations to come.
The Bently Heritage Tasting Room is a special place for people to enjoy and be educated on not only Bently Heritage, but distilling in general. Here, visitors can experience tours, tastings, or bespoke cocktails that are only available at our distillery.
There is so much to see at Bently Heritage that it’s hard to squeeze everything into the one hour tour. On this tour you’ll have access to both the historic ‘Creamery’ and the ‘Mill’ buildings, both of which have evolved into functioning artistic achievements. You’ll see our stills, bottling line, barrelling room and other areas off limits to the casual visitor. Your tour will conclude with a sampling of our premium spirits while you enjoy a view of the single malt whisky production area. Truly an awesome experience, but don’t take our word for it!
We use only our own grains grown right here on our ranch in Nevada. Bently Ranch sustainable grows and harvests winter rye, wheat, oats, and barley which we malt in-house on our own malting floor.
Our hundred-year-old Minden flour mill sits proudly on the National Register of Historic Places. Once the largest operating mill in the area, today it has been restored to modern LEED-certified standards. The mill once again processes grain — only this time to create some of the finest spirits in the world.
Our goal is not only to set a new standard for sustainable production in the state of Nevada, but also in the world. As stewards of this planet, every person has the responsibility to better use our environment. Minden and the Carson Valley are an oasis of green and wide-open spaces, rich in history. This must be preserved and we will do out best to ensure it remains intact.
