Heaven Hill 2023 Parker’s Heritage Collection

Heaven Hill has unveiled the 2023 edition of its Parker’s Heritage Collection, a 10-Year-Old Cask Strength Rye Whiskey. A portion of the proceeds from every sale will go to support ALS research and patient care in honor of Parker Beam, Master Distiller Emeritus.

The 2023 Edition of Heaven Hill Parker’s Heritage Collection is comprised of 10-year-old Rye Whiskey that was barreled in August, October, or December of 2012. The barrels were aged on the first floors of Rickhouses H1 and H2, the fifth floor of Rickhouse FF, the third and seventh floors of Rickhouse BB, and the second floor of Rickhouse DD. The whiskey features a mashbill of 51% rye, 35% corn, and 14% malted barley, and was bottled at a cask strength of 128.8 proof.

“Keeping Parker’s legacy alive through this ultra-premium offering is something we’re very dedicated to at Heaven Hill Distillery,” said Susan Wahl, Vice President of American Whiskey at Heaven Hill. “Parker laid the groundwork for this series, and we believe this Cask Strength Rye release is one that would make him proud.”

Parker Beam, for whom the series is named, was diagnosed with ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2010. Since 2013, proceeds from sales of the Parker’s Heritage Collection have raised more than $1.2 million dollars toward ALS research and patient care.

Packaged in the same 750ml bottle as the previous sixteen editions, the 17th Edition features an emerald-colored label, and is available in a three-bottle case.

The Heaven Hill 2023 Parker’s Heritage Collection release will be available nationally and internationally this month in limited quantities for $185 per bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.

In May, Heaven Hill announced plans for a new, $135 million distillery to open by 2024. The state-of-the-art facility will augment Heaven Hill’s distilling capacity to meet increased global whiskey demand and marks the company’s return to distilling in Bardstown since a 1996 fire when Heaven Hill lost its onsite distillery, seven rickhouses, and almost 100,000 barrels of whiskey.
