2017 release of Parker's Heritage Collection

Heaven Hill Distillery has announced the release of its 2017 limited edition Parker's Heritage Collection. The 11 year old single barrel Bourbon will be shipped in September.

Parker’s Heritage Collection was originally conceived to showcase the quality and range of Heaven Hill’s American whiskey holdings, as Heaven Hill boasts the world’s second largest inventory of ageing American whiskey.

The late Heaven Hill Distillery master distiller emeritus Parker Beam, for whom the acclaimed series is named, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also called ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2010. The past four editions from 2013-2016, including the Promise of Hope bourbon, the Original Batch Straight Wheat whiskey, the Kentucky Straight Malt whiskey, and the 24-Year-Old Bottled-in-Bond bourbon respectively, have raised over half a million dollars toward ALS research and patient care through contributions made by Heaven Hill for each bottle purchased. Heaven Hill will continue with this cause-related campaign, and will contribute $10 from the average national retail cost of US$129.99 of each 750ml bottle sold of this year’s release to the ALS Association. With every past edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection quickly selling out, the company expects to continue to generate significant dollars for this effort in Parker’s memory.

Susan Wahl, group product director says: “Through Parker Beam’s leadership and influence, the history of Kentucky Bourbon and Heaven Hill’s American Whiskey heritage has an enduring foundation of quality, transparency, and passion. We are proud to continue offering the Parker’s Heritage collection in his memory and continue to support ALS research and patient care efforts.”

Packaged in the same upscale 750ml bottle as the previous 10 editions but with a gray coloured label, the Parker’s Heritage Collection 11 years old single barrel Kentucky sraight bourbon whiskey bottling reflects the care and craftsmanship of its contents. Available in a three bottle case, it will be featured on the shelves and back bars starting in September. With previous releases having won multiple awards from publications including Whisky Magazine, the rare bottlings stand as some of the most critically lauded American whiskeys in recent memory.
