Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., America’s largest independent, family-owned producer of Bourbon, invites you to historic Bardstown, the Bourbon Capital of the World, to visit our award-winning Bourbon Heritage Center. Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. was originally established in 1934. Today, the world’s second largest holding of aging Kentucky Bourbon sleeps peacefully in our 51 open rickhouses situated throughout Kentucky in the heart of Bourbon Country.
By law, Bourbon must be made up of at least 51% corn and aged in new charred white oak barrels, standards that were pioneered by early Bourbon makers such as Evan Williams and Rev. Elijah Craig.
Today, our brands named after these early Kentucky whiskey-producers, exceed these standards and offer unique attributes of age, proof and heritage in an astonishing range of traditional, small batch, single barrel, rye-based and wheated whiskeys. All are produced under the watchful eyes of our father and son Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam, the sixth and seventh generations of a famed Bourbon-making family.
