Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. launched the newest addition to the American Whiskey Landscape - Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey - in New York City. The launch is for the first wheat whiskey to enter the U.S. market, according to the Alcohol Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). It is named after the historic Bernheim Distillery in which Heaven Hill distills every drop of their world renowned American Whiskey.

The new whiskey is the first of its kind. Heaven Hill Father and Son Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam developed the wheat formula with a minimum of 51% winter wheat - the recipe also includes corn and malted barley. 'Our Bernheim Wheat Whiskey was still an experiment for us at Heaven Hill when we first put it up to age in January 2000,' said Craig Beam. 'We suspected it would turn out well, but even we were surprised at how it aged and matured.' Critical acclaim from international whisk(e)y experts was an integral part of the launch, and every one widely lauded the product. In addition, early buzz among connoisseurs has bolstered anticipation of the brand's significance.

The five year old product was originally distilled in January 2000. The recipe's maturity was evident from the beginning. 'We like to think we've contributed something to the whiskey world that hadn't been done before. I hope you'll agree with us that this was a worthwhile experiment,' said Beam.

The current bottling features a gold medallion label on a clear glass bottle with wheat etchings and a wax closure. Future supply of the Bernheim is expected to slowly grow in to additional markets.

Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey is bottled at 90 proof (45% alc/vol).

Producer Information

Shortly after Prohibition ended in the United States, Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., was founded in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Shapira family to produce and market Bourbon and premium American whiskeys. At the time, it was as speculative a new business venture as the dot com start-ups of the 1990's -- a company founded with no brands, no available stocks of whiskey, and at the height of the Great Depression. Today, the company has overcome these initial challenges and grown to become the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country. According to industry analysts, Heaven Hill is now the seventh largest spirits supplier in the United States and is the second largest holder of aging Bourbon whiskey in the world with an inventory in excess of 675,000 barrels.
Over the last two decades Heaven Hill has moved beyond its traditional focus on American whiskeys to become a broadly diversified spirits supplier. Heaven Hill's portfolio includes both domestically produced products, such as Evan Williams Bourbon and Christian Brothers Brandy, as well as a growing line of selected imported brands from around the world, such as Hpnotiq Liqueur and Isle of Jura Single Malt Scotch. Brands are identified and developed to take advantage of the many varied consumer tastes that exist in the vast U.S. distilled spirits market. These brands are then sold on a national basis through an innovative and aggressive marketing and sales organization under a concept that is unique to the industry.
With an already robust business in the United States, Heaven Hill has now mounted an aggressive international expansion plan, forming partnerships with like-minded companies throughout the world. Heaven Hill has established its brands in over 40 countries throughout Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim, Central and South America.
The company's success is based on the fact that it is large enough to market brands aggressively in the United States and throughout the world, yet small enough to care about every brand and be responsive to the needs of every customer. Heaven Hill's formula for growth begins with the commitment to support its current portfolio of brands, while continuing to diversify by adding new products through internal development, agency relationships and acquisitions. Throughout its product line, Heaven Hill offers a competitive advantage by emphasizing unique characteristics like extra aging, superior quality, innovative packaging and uncompromised craftsmanship. Whether it is a Bourbon from Kentucky's First Distiller, such as Evan Williams, or a Gin first produced by the Lord Mayor of London, such as Burnett's, Heaven Hill products enjoy heritage, history and an unexcelled reputation.
In stark contrast to the unpredictable and ever-consolidating spirits industry, Heaven Hill remains fiercely independent, guided by the steady hands of the Shapira family. The company is dedicated to establishing long-term relationships with their customers in order to build strong brands and implement consistent, effective programming. Heritage, stability and dedication define Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., a company committed to producing and marketing the highest quality spirits products worldwide.
