The ultimate everyday Bourbon.

Henry Mckenna was an Irish immigrant who came to Kentucky in 1837. With a background in distilling, Mckenna brought with him the generations-old family Whisky recipe and set up shop in Fairfield, Kentucky — just about five miles from where the current Heaven Hill Distillery is located in Bardstown, Kentucky. The story of Heaven Hill is quite a tale to tell in itself. They started back in 1933 and remain the only family-owned distillery in Kentucky, with the second largest inventory of Bourbon in the world. In 1996, Heaven Hill's production plant was almost completely destroyed by fire. The company survived and while fermenting, mashing, and distilling now occurs at the new Louisville distillery, aging, bottling, and shipping still occur in Bardstown. The question is – what do good ol’ Henry and Heaven Hill have in common?

Well, besides the location, the love for Bourbon, of course. Now, you take that love for Bourbon, combine it with the classic Heaven Hill mash bill (75% corn, 13% rye & 12% barley), almost a hundred years of tradition, 10 years in the barrel, and you get Henry McKenna Single Barrel 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The Whiskey is Bottled-in-Bond* at 50% ABV and represents everything a proper traditional Bourbon’s supposed to be. It’s tasty, aromatic and packs quite a punch as well. Perfectly balanced. Last but not least – it represents outstanding value for money. It drinks like a Whiskey twice the price. But it doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not. It’s just a good old-fashioned straightforward Bourbon made with competence and love. Henry would approve.

Smartass Corner:
*Any spirit labeled as Bottled-in-Bond must be the product of one distillation season and one distiller at a single distillery. Also, the law requires that bonded spirits be aged in a federally bonded warehouse under U.S. government supervision for at least four years and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV). Henry McKenna is the longest aged Bottled-in-Bond available today, resting in the barrel through 40 Kentucky seasons.

Heaven Hill is a well respected distillery, even amongst their competitors. After the fire of 1996, the local major distilleries Jim Beam and Brown Forman shared their stills with Heaven Hill while they rebuilt.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
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.
