Heaven Hill Releasing A 20 Year Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey

Heaven Hill Distillery recently announced the release of its Heaven Hill Heritage Collection 20-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey.

This is part of the 2023 edition of the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection.

A statement from the distiller notes that each spring, this annual limited release features some of the distillery’s oldest inventory of aging whiskey, a practice of Heaven Hill’s since 1935.

Each release in the collection features one of the six traditional American whiskey mash bills by Heaven Hill. This 20-Year features Heaven Hill’s corn whiskey mash bill, made up of 80% corn, 12% malted barley and 8% rye. It’s bottled at 115 proof.

The release is made up of 110 barrels, produced in October of 2002, pulled from the third floor of Rickhouse 1K.

The distiller’s notes show this expression has a nose of toasted corn and oak spices, and on the palate aged oak and walnuts followed by a finish of wood spices with a hint of corn sweetness.

“The Heaven Hill Heritage Collection reflects the true craftsmanship, patience and consistency which are hallmarks of Heaven Hill’s whiskey making traditions,” said Conor O’ Driscoll, master distiller. “The ability to offer consumers an ultra-aged corn whiskey product is a true testament to the forward-thinking innovation the company has practiced for decades and continues to practice to this day.”

As with the inaugural release, the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection 750ml bottle comes in a premium box in signature Heaven Hill blue with the double-H insignia stamped in gold.

Specific attributes such as warehouse site location, production date, mash bill percentages, and other designations are noted on the packaging.

Heaven Hill Heritage Collection 20-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey will begin shipping on March 1st, and has a suggested retail price of $289.99.
