Full of character, just like its namesake.

Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second-largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grown to become the seventh-largest supplier of Spirits in the US. BUT… they are still family-owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. You’ve got to respect the Shapira family! The Spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill include Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.

In 1783, Evan Williams was the guy who opened Kentucky’s first distillery on the banks of the Ohio River. Like its namesake, Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon is full of character. It’s been aged way longer than it’s required by law and the result is a smooth, rich, and approachable Bourbon with flavors of oak, caramel, and brown sugar. Clocking in at a pleasant 86 proof, this lovely amber liquid might just be your next everyday sipper.

Pinhook’s high-proof Bourbon won Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, while the Straight Rye Whiskey won Double Gold the following year. In 2021, their Bourbon War Vertical Series 5 Year and the 2021 Flagship Bourbon won a Gold Medal each, with a Double Gold going to their Tiz Rye Time Vertical Series 5 Year. Pinhook is evidently doing something right!

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Pinhooking means purchasing and rearing a foal based on its pedigree and either selling it or turning it into a champ racing horse. The same idea is behind Pinhook Bourbon: they source young Whiskey to mature and blend it into a blue-ribbon sipping Bourbon.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
