The state-of-the-art distillery will increase our distilling capacity to meet global whiskey demand and marks our return to distilling in Bardstown.

New Release: Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Spring 2022

Meet the Man Behind AFROFUSION

On a recent November evening in Louisville, Kentucky, Jack Beguedou is busy with final preparations. In just two hours, guests will arrive for the second-ever AFROFUSION dinner. A lot of prep has gone into picking the best West African food, Bourbon and cocktail pairings, and this is the first chance the crew at the city’s Afrokanza Lounge has had to execute the plan. But it’ll be worth it because all this hard work is for a concept Beguedou is excited to share.

Bourbon Gives Back

Bourbon draws people together: to drink it, share it, talk about it, hunt for it, show it off on social media and sometimes to give it away for a good cause. t’s a tie that binds groups of people with wide-ranging and high-minded aims.

Introducing the Latest in the Parker’s Heritage Collection

We’re proud to announce the 2021 limited edition release of Parker’s Heritage Collection 11-Year-Old Heavy Char Wheat Whiskey. The latest edition is part of an important tradition here at Heaven Hill Distillery. Each year we select a special whiskey to be released in the name of our late master distiller, Parker Beam.

A Lasting Legacy

Around the year 2000, Heaven Hill’s owners knew the company needed a bona fide tourism experience. They knew the American Whiskey boom was coming, and impressive tourism experiences unfolding at other Kentucky distilleries far exceeded the company’s informal, “Just show up and we’ll show you around” tours. If its visitor center were to gain attention on the brand new Kentucky Bourbon Trail, it had to be attractive and engaging, a place that whiskey lovers would visit intentionally, and a destination that closed the loop between the Heaven Hill story and the brands its customers loved.
