We’re a couple years out from the launch of Tales from the Hill, our podcast devoted to sharing the stories behind our spirits and learning from the people who know them best.
Since 2019, the series has provided a unique, behind-the-scenes look into Heaven Hill Distillery, the largest independent, family-owned and operated distillery in America. We’ve also featured key players in the industry, highlighted our award-winning American Whiskeys and hopefully kept you entertained with good-natured conversations along the way.
If you haven’t yet listened, we hope you’ll settle in, pour yourself something good and discover the vast and varied stories of American Whiskey with us. Once you’re hooked, you won’t want to miss an episode, so make sure to subscribe for free on Apple podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or your favorite podcast app.
Here are a few of our recent highlights.
EPISODE 20: A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
At Heaven Hill Distillery, it’s our job to make sure there’s enough quality whiskey to be enjoyed for generations—which is why we’ve partnered with Independent Stave Company to invest in logger education and certified sustainable forestry. In this episode, learn all about this partnership, from how it first began to why it’s important for the future of American Whiskey.
EPISODE 19: BACK TO BARDSTOWN
In 2022, we broke ground on a new, $135 million distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. It’ll be a few years before everything is up-and-running, but that hasn’t made the announcement any less exciting. That’s why in this episode we shared the story of Heaven Hill Springs Distillery—both the new and the old—and gave you more details on our exciting return to distilling in our hometown.
EPISODE 18: THE WOMEN OF WHISKEY
Here at Heaven Hill Distillery, we believe in preserving the traditions of Kentucky’s native spirit. But we are equally committed to innovating the art form, finding new opportunities for flavor and shaping the future of American Whiskey. That’s why we wanted to sit down with some of the people defining that future at Heaven Hill and beyond. Specifically, the women leading the charge. In this roundtable discussion, five women from across Heaven Hill discussed their unique roles, backgrounds and thoughts on what’s ahead for women in the industry.
EPISODE 17: 125 YEARS OF BOTTLED-IN-BOND
On March 3, 1897, the Bottled-in-Bond Act was signed into law and an important part of whiskey-making history was born. Now, 125 years later, it’s a tradition we’re proud to preserve. On this episode, we sat down with Heaven Hill Brand Ambassadors and Bottled-in-Bond Enthusiasts Bernie Lubbers and Jack Choate (as well as a couple of special guests) to discuss the legacy—and the future—of this American Whiskey tradition.
