A series of rare, limitied edition American Whiskies. A new edition is released each year.

Parker’s Heritage Collection Malt Whiskey

Parker's Heritage collection is a series of rare, limited edition American Whiskeys offered as a tribute to sixth-generation Master Distiller Emeritus Parker Beam for his more than five decades of crafting exceptional Whiskeys.

The 9th edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection features an 8-year-old straight Kentucky Malt Whiskey, bottled at 108 proof and non-chill filtered. The 141 barrels used for this edition were part of an experimental run of a 65% malted barley/35% corn straight whiskey created by Heaven Hill Co-Master Distiller Craig Beam in late 2006. These rare barrels were put up into the 5th and 7th floors of Rickhouse Y in Bardstown, where the ideal aging conditions mellowed the whiskey and lent it great complexity. With a smoky, sweet flavor and long, lingering finish, it is a worthy successor to the previous Parker’s Heritage Collection releases, which stand as some of the most critically lauded American Whiskeys in recent memory.

Heaven Hill Master Distiller Emeritus Parker Beam, for whom the acclaimed series is named, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also called ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) several years ago. For every bottle sold of this edition, Heaven Hill will contribute $5 to ALS research and treatment in honor of Parker.
