Bently Heritage Estate Distillery

the Carlito still

Now open to the public! The Bently Heritage Estate Distillery, located in Minden, Nevada, is a short drive from our Tahoe resorts. The mill, over 100 years old and once the largest in the area, has been beautifully restored and modernized. Bently Ranch, located nearby, sustainably grows and harvests all of the grains used in production (and the barley is malted in-house, too).

Gin and vodka are currently offered, with whiskey coming as soon as it can be aged! Take a tour of the mill and creamery, and finish with a tasting of premium spirits while over-looking the single malt whiskey production area.

Visiting Tahoe? Don’t miss the Shops at Heavenly Village! Located at the base of the Heavenly Mountain Resort Gondola (and a close walk to the casinos), this area offers great dining, live music, an 8-plex movie theater, over 40 shops (including both local and national brands), a lift up the mountain and even ice skating or mini golf! Some of our favorite choices? Driftwood Cafe, Azul Latin Kitchen and Base Camp Pizza Co.!

Safe Winter Travel

Planning a visit to Tahoe this winter? There’s always plenty to do, whether you prefer skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snow mobiling… or perhaps staying by a warm fire. But that beautiful winter wonderland also means hazardous road conditions, so please remember to bring a safe and dependable vehicle. We recommend 4-wheel drive (if the weather is worse than that, stay inside with a warm drink!).

Haven’t made your winter plans yet? We occasionally have some rental availability at both our Eagles’ Nest and Tahoe Village locations. Contact our Reservations Department for more information. As always, our members get priority and the lowest rates!

Happy winter travels!
