Bernheim Original deserves a spot in your heart and your liquor cabinet.

Bernheim Original is a product of Heaven Hill Distillery. Founded in 1935, Heaven Hill is a major producer of premium spirits located in Bardstown, Kentucky — the “Bourbon Capital of the World.” While most large distilleries are owned by international conglomerates, Heaven Hill is owned by a relatively small investor group controlled by the Shapira Family. A long list of spirits and brands are produced there, but American Whisky and Bourbon are by far the most important.

The first thing you need to know about Bernheim Whiskey is that it is a wheat Whiskey — meaning that the mash bill is at least 51% wheat. The rest is a corn, rye, and a dash of barley. Like most Wheat Whiskies, Bernheim is considered to be a soft Whiskey with less spice and a lighter, smoother palate. Bernheim is aged a full seven years in charred new oak and you will notice that it is a bit less sweet than most American Whiskies. It is definitely an award-winning dram that gets lost sometimes in the current Bourbon and Rye craze sweeping the market right now.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
