Heaven Hill Distillery has announced the release of Heaven Hill 85th Anniversary 13-Year-Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
This limited-edition expression celebrates Heaven Hill’s 85 years of distilling tradition. “Perseverance is a hallmark of Heaven Hill’s history, and a value resonating across the industry this year,” says President Max L. Shapira. “Our steadfast commitment to quality and an enduring legacy continues to guide Heaven Hill’s path forward. We look forward to lifting America’s spirit for the next 85 years, as we have since 1935.”
The Heaven Hill 85th Anniversary edition is comprised of one barrel filled on Dec. 13, 2006, and dumped on Dec. 13, 2019, honoring the anniversary date Heaven Hill first filled a barrel with Kentucky bourbon in 1935. This 13-year-old Kentucky bourbon, another callback to the anniversary date, aged on the second floor of Rickhouse G on Heaven Hill’s main Bardstown campus.
The anniversary bottle is 107 proof, Heaven Hill’s original barrel entry proof circa 1935, and non-chill filtered.
This bourbon comes in a custom wooden box bearing two H’s on each side, signifying the Heaven Hill name. The bottle is secured in the box with magnetic closure, and sits in a blue satin-lined base. The distiller’s notes label includes hand-written bottle numbers, distiller tasting notes and DSP-KY-1, denoting the Heaven Hill Bernheim Distillery.
The one-time release of Heaven Hill 85th Anniversary 13-Year-Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey will occur in late 2020 at the Bourbon Heritage center and limited Kentucky retailers. The suggested retail price is $299.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
This follows the recent release of Heaven Hill’s 2020 Parker’s Heritage Collection 10 Year Old Heavy Char Bourbon.
