Founded shortly after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, Heaven Hill became the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the United States.
Heaven Hills success is due to a mix of good business acumen, continuity, heritage and uncompromising craftsmanship. The company is still owned by descendants of the founding Shapira brothers and five generations of the famous Beam family have overseen the distillation.
Located in Bardstown, Kentucky, Heaven Hill is the worlds second largest holder of bourbon whiskey with over 675,000 charred white oak barrels ageing in 42 open-rick warehouses.
Double-distillation takes place at the modern Bernheim facility where Craig and Parker Beam produce rye and wheat influenced bourbons as well as straight rye, corn and wheat whiskies, using their own family yeast strainnow in its fifth generation!
Nose: Light flowery oak, hints of vanilla Mouth: Light, uncomplicated palate, but with a good balance of spirit and oak. The finish is full with a touch of pepper.
