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 85+ 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

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CURRENT EDITION

The first edition of the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection is a 17-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Bottled straight from the barrel without chill filtering, this 118.2 proof whiskey showcases our traditional Bourbon mashbill of 78% corn, 10% rye and 12% malted barley. A mingling of 17-, 19- and 20-year-old Bourbons, the collection uniquely shares in-depth liquid and production information on the label for added transparency. The first edition’s label highlights the percentages of various Bourbon ages, as well as which rickhouses the barrels were pulled from. Attributes on the label will vary by release.

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 1.9 million barrels resting across six 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.

The Heritage
Collections

As nurturers and preservers of American Whiskey, we believe in keeping whiskey-making traditions alive through our ultra-premium, limited-edition collections. The Heaven Hill Heritage Collection is complementary to our celebrated, more innovative counterpart, the Parker’s Heritage Collection. Together, these offerings form the Heritage Collections. Here is how they compare.

Mashbill

We sampled and adjusted the special stock of barrels until we had a mingling that carried the best qualities of our traditional mashbill.

Rickhouses Sites

In total, we pulled 239 barrels from four rickhouse locations. Of those, 52 were casualty barrels, meaning over the years they’d become empty or off-taste. Only 188 barrels were ultimately blended and bottled for this edition.

Age Statement

Although this mingling includes 19- and 20-year-old Bourbons, this limited release is required to carry the age statement of the youngest, 17-year-old Bourbon. Production dates and percentages of each age are included on the label.

Production Details

Distilled Spirits Plant (D.S.P.) KY-1 is our Bernheim Distillery in Louisville and our bottling plant in Bardstown is D.S.P. KY-31.
