Heaven Hill was established in 1935 by Bardstown, KY investors. The recent ending or prohibition meant people were seeking to produce and market bourbon and American whiskeys. During the 1990s, Heaven hill started acquiring gins, vodkas and liqueurs. It is now the 6th largest spirits supplier in the USA. It’s also the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the USA (Heaven Hill Distilleries, 2019).
Originally, Heaven Hill’s name was “Old Heavenhill Springs” distillery. However, in 2014 the company changed its name to Heaven Hill Brands. Heaven Hill’s alcohol portfolio includes: Evan Williams Bourbon, Deep Eddy Vodka, Lunazul Tequila, Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon, Burnett’s Vodka, Christian Brothers Brandy, Carolan’s Irish Cream, and Admiral Nelson’s Rums.
The core values of quality and the family-owned mission of Heaven Hill Brands has served the company long-term by allowing them to be one of the world largest and most popular American Whisky producers.
