Description

HEAVEN HILL DISTILLERY

At the historic intersection of 17th Street and Breckenridge Street in downtown Louisville sits Heaven Hill’s Bernheim Distillery: the world’slargest independent, family-owned Bourbon distillery, producing 1,300 barrels a day.

The traditional methods used here are the same as those of the company’s first plant, the Heaven Hill Springs Distillery in Bardstown, KY, roughly 45 minutes away. The Shapira brothers, who cofounded the distillery in 1935, could not have imagined owning a distillery like Bernheim. And given the unfortunate circumstances leading to its purchase in 1999, none of them would have wanted to.

But as fortune favors the bold, so does the art and business of making whiskey, and a curious order of events eventually led to Heaven Hill creating the single most productive Bourbon distilling operation and second-largest inventory of aging whiskey in the world.

EVAN WILLIAMS SINGLE BARREL VINTAGE

Evan Williams Single Barrel is the only vintage-dated single barrel Bourbon on the market. Similar to the way vintage wines are selected, our distillers hand-select individual barrels that meet the specifications they’ve established. Then each bottle is marked with the vintage date it was put into oak, along with the year it was bottled and the exact barrel number of the single barrel that the Bourbon was drawn from.
