Heaven Hill Heritage Collection

Heaven Hill Heritage Collection

We're proud to introduce a new collection of extra-aged, ultra-premium American Whiskeys to our portfolio. The Heaven Hill Heritage Collection exemplifies the true craftsmanship, patience and consistency that are hallmarks of our almost 90 years of whiskey-making traditions. With new editions released every spring, this collection features Straight American Whiskeys from one of our six traditional mashbills. Ages vary by release but all editions feature our oldest stocks of barrels.

Proof: Varies by Release
Age: Varies by Release

The 2024 release of the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection is an 18-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Bottled without chill filtering, this 120 proof Whiskey showcases our Bourbon mashbill of 78% corn, 10% rye and 12% malted barley. As noted on the label for added transparency, this year’s release consists of 133 barrels that were produced in December 2005 and aged on the third floor of rickhouse 1I.

About the Heaven Hill
Heritage Collection

Over many years, we have been quietly aging some exquisite Whiskeys for a new series within our Heaven Hill Distillery portfolio. Of our over 2 million barrels resting across seven rickhouse sites in central Kentucky, our master craftspeople have kept watchful eyes on this limited stock.

Heaven Hill

We’ve pulled from our special stock of barrels twice before. First in 2018 for the premium, extra-aged Heaven Hill 27-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon, and again in 2020 for a special 85th Anniversary bottling. The success of these two releases inspired us to create the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection. With this exclusive collection, we are now able to share our oldest Whiskeys with you each year.

This 18-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey epitomizes what consumers have come to expect from the highest quality of Heaven Hill’s releases.

The 2024 edition features our Bourbon Whiskey mashbill of 78% corn, 10% rye and 12% malted barley. We sampled several barrels to guarantee we mingled the Whiskey that delivered the best qualities of our traditional mashbill.

Rickhouses Sites

The barrel selection process is complex; although we sampled many, ultimately we selected just 133 barrels to blend for this edition—all from the third floor of rickhouse 1I.

Age Statement

All the barrels for this release were produced in December 2005, then left to age until they were ready for bottling 18 years later.

Production Details
