Heaven Hill Unveils 2020 Parker’s Heritage Collection Bourbon

Heaven Hill Distillery announced today the 2020 limited edition release of Parker’s Heritage Collection 10 Year Old Heavy Char Bourbon.

The 14th edition will ship nationally beginning in September for a suggested retail price of $120 per 750-ml. bottle.

The 2020 Parker’s Heritage Collection bourbon has a mashbill of 78% corn, 12% malted barley and 10% rye. Aged in heavy char (Level 5) barrels — as opposed to the customary Level 3 for Heaven Hill — the resulting flavors carry intensified notes of the traditional bourbon, the company says.

Consisting of 102 barrels aged on the sixth floor of rickhouse Y for 10 years, the heavy char brings forth a caramel and maple sweetness, according to the distillery, as well as slight smokiness.

The 2020 Parker’s Heritage Collection bourbon is bottled at 120 proof, and non-chill filtered.

“The Parker’s Heritage Collection is a testament to the attention to detail crafted throughout Heaven Hill’s distilling legacy,” says Susan Wahl, VP, American whiskies at Heaven Hill. “It is an honor to continue Parker’s interest in innovation through this series and showcase the variety of Heaven Hill Distillery’s portfolio. It is in tribute to Parker and his legacy that we continue to support ALS research and patient care with this series.”

The late Heaven Hill Master Distiller Parker Beam, for whom this series is named, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also called ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2010. Past editions, from 2013-2019, have raised more than $1 million dollars toward ALS research and patient care through contributions made by Heaven Hill for each bottle purchased. With the 2020 Heavy Char Bourbon edition, Heaven Hill will again contribute a portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold to the ALS Association.

Packaged in the same bottle as the previous 13 editions, but with a navy blue label, the newest Parker’s Heritage Collection is available in a three-bottle case, reaching retailer starting in October.
