BourbonBlog.com is first to bring you the full details about Heaven Hill Distilleries releasing the 2014 Parker’s Heritage collection limited edition bottling.
For 2014, Parker’s Heritage will be a 13-year-old Wheat Whiskey with the retail cost of $89.99 for a 750 ml bottle, as it hits shelves in September and October 2014.
The release will be comprised of two small batch dumps, the first of which will be bottled at 127.4 proof (63.7% ABV). This cask strength and non-chill filtered whiskey aged for 13 years at the top floor of Rickhouse Y at Heaven Hill in Bardstown, Kentucky.
In June 2014, Heaven Hill decided to repackage their Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey and add a 7 year age statement. With the additional 6 years of maturation on Parker’s Heritage 2014, there is an even greater depth and complexity.
Last year’s edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection, called the “Promise of Hope” release, raised over $300,000 for the ALS Association’s Parker Beam Promise of Hope Fund through a $20 per bottle contribution made from Heaven Hill.
Heaven Hill says they will continue this year with to raise funs and contribute $5 for every bottle of Parker’s Heritage sold.
