Parker's Heritage Collection 7th Edition: Promise of Hope

Parker’s Heritage Collection is a series of rare, limited edition American Whiskeys offered as a tribute to sixth-generation Master Distiller Parker Beam for his more than five decades of crafting exceptional Whiskeys. Parker Beam is now facing a new challenge. He has been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Now, he is using his legacy to bring attention to ALS and the fight for a cure.

Hand selected by Parker, the 7th edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection is the first single barrel offering in the series and embodies every quality he thinks makes a Bourbon just right. As a single barrel, this is Parker’s favorite style, as there is no mingling of barrels and the quality of Bourbon speaks for itself. After 10 years of aging in Rickhouse EE at Heaven Hill’s Deatsville location, Parker says “there is something magical that happens in the barrel that makes it the perfect time to bottle it up.” Bottled at 96 proof, it’s full of flavor with a smooth taste just perfect for sipping. This combination of attributes has contributed to this unique Bourbon that Parker’s Heritage Collection has become known for.

Heaven Hill Distilleries is donating $20 to the ALS Association per bottle sold, making this edition even more special to Parker. The ALS Association has established a special fund, known as the Parker Beam Promise of Hope Fund, into which the donations will be collected.
