Did you know that wheat whiskey was developed right here at Heaven Hill Distillery? It was crafted and created by our very own Master Distillers. To qualify as wheat whiskey, the first new style of American whiskey since prohibition, the product must be at least 51% wheat. At Heaven Hill Distillery, we use soft winter wheat, making for a smoother tasting whiskey and a more enjoyable sipping experience.
This Heaven Hill Distillery original is named for the famed Bernheim Distillery here in Louisville. A wheat whiskey, Bernheim Original is the first new style of American whiskey to be introduced since Prohibition. Aged for 7 years in our traditional open rickhouses, Bernheim’s mellow taste is refreshingly smooth when served straight or in cocktails.
Larceny carries on the tradition of Old Fitzgerald Bourbons with wheat as the secondary grain instead of the traditional rye. Our Master Distillers select only 200 barrels or less for each batch to develop Larceny’s six-year-old taste profile.
