Heaven Hill Distilleries Inc.

Heaven Hill Distilleries Inc. was originally established as a Bourbon distiller in 1934. Today the world’s second largest holding of aging Kentucky Bourbon sleeps peacefully in our 51 open rickhouses situated throughout Kentucky in the heart of Bourbon Country. By law Bourbon must be made up of at least 51% corn and aged in new charred white oak barrels standards that were pioneered by early Bourbon makers such as Evan Williams and Rev. Elijah Craig. Today their brands named after these early Kentucky whiskey-producers exceed these standards and offer unique attributes of age proof and heritage in an astonishing range of traditional small batch single barrel rye-based and wheated whiskeys. All are produced under the watchful eyes of our father and son Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam the sixth and seventh generations of a famed Bourbon-making family.

Tasting Notes

Delightfully complex nose with notes of vanilla bean, sweet fruit, and fresh mint. The palate is smooth and warm; pleasantly woody with accents of spice, smoke, and nutmeg leading to a long, sweet, and slightly toasty finish.
