The latest and oldest release and Bottled In Bond is a wheated dram in a gorgeous bottle that earns a place on your top shelf.

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. God bless the Shapira family! The Spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill includes Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.

Heaven Hill has just released the forth biannual release of it’s "Bottled In Bond" series. This latest entry is the oldest — and we’d argue the best — one of the group so far. It’s called the Fall 2019 Release Old Fitzgerald Bottled In Bond and it’s a full fifteen years old. The barrels were laid down in 2004 and bottled (in that stunning decanter) in December 2019. It’s simply glorious and we are not the first ones to draw favorable comparisons to the grand-daddy of super-premium Bourbons, Pappy Van Winkle — also a wheated dram.

Smartass corner:
To qualify as "Bottled In Bond" a Spirit must be the product one distiller during one distilling season, be aged for a minimum of four years in a federally bonded warehouse, and be bottled at a minimum of 100 proof (50% ABV), among other regulations.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"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."
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
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.
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.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
