Heaven Hill Distillery
Founded by the five Shapira brothers in 1935 after the repeal of Prohibition, Heaven Hill is the nation's largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits products. Based in Bardstown, Kentucky, it is the second largest holder of Bourbon whiskey in the world. In the open-rick warehouses where the world's finest Bourbon ages in charred white oak, you can almost feel the presence of legends like William Heavenhill, the company's namesake, and Kentucky's Bourbon pioneers Evan Williams and the Rev. Elijah Craig.
Heaven Hill combines that heritage of craftsmanship, exemplified by the personal touch of the Master Distiller, with modern technology and a commitment to stability and sustained growth worldwide. Heaven Hill's diversified portfolio includes brands such as the full line of The Christian Brothers Brandies, Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Elijah Craig 12 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey.
