Heaven Hill Distillery announced the re-introduction of Heaven Hill Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
The origins of Heaven Hill’s eponymous Bottled-in-Bond brand dates to 1939. The lineage of Heaven Hill Bourbon has been a constant throughout the company’s history, from the original 1939 4-Year-Old Bottled-in-Bond to the 2018 release of Heaven Hill 27-Year-Old. The 2019 release of Heaven Hill Bottled-in-Bond was aged for 7 years.
Made from Heaven Hill Distillery’s traditional Bourbon mashbill (78% Corn, 10% Rye, 12% Malted Barley), mingled in small batches, and bottled at 100 proof, this 7-year-old offering of the namesake brand exceeds the minimum four-year aging requirement for a Bottled-in-Bond.
“Heaven Hill Distillery was built on patience and perseverance, two values we continue to pour into our products today,” said Heaven Hill Distillery President Max L. Shapira. “At a time when American Whiskey is surging, we are proud to release a namesake product that really brings us back to our company’s founding. It celebrates our rich bourbon-making heritage, as well as the values and standards we hold today as a point of passion for our company.”
With a suggested retail price of $39.99 (which is double the price of last year’s, discontinued 6 year old Bottled-in-Bond), it will first launch in October in California, Texas, New York, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, South Carolina, and Colorado.
