For William Heavenhill, distilling was a family tradition. By some accounts, Heavenhill corn whiskey supplied Bardstown’s historic Talbott Tavern in the early 1800s. The limestone spring William used to make his Bourbon was the same spring that inspired our company’s original name: The Old Heavenhill Springs Distillery.
This ninth edition of William Heavenhill is comprised of only 34 barrels pulled from the 4th floor of Rickhouse LL at Schenley. These barrels were allowed to age for an impressive 15 years before being selected for this limited edition offering. The barrel proof has been cut to 109, for a rich, well-balanced Bourbon, which makes the perfect addition to any whiskey connoisseur’s collection.
