Since I was spending my time in airports and jets this week, I tried catching up on my podcasts. On Whiskycast it was reported that HH is going to be releasing a collection to honor Parker Beam with his name on it - had not be officially announced though in late July when the podcast was made. I didn't remember seeing anything on that here. Anyone know anything about this one ?

I have no idea, so I just now went to the Heaven Hill state and asked the question.

It will be fun to see whether I get an answer that contains any actual information. Or will it look somewhat like the following:


"We at Heaven Hill continue to introduce new products designed to expand our markets in response to consumer demand. The introduction of any new product line will be announced in due course through press releases and advertising.



"Thank you for your interest in Heaven Hill products. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have additional questions."
Hell, I bet I could write that stuff for a living! :grin:

Yours truly,
Dave Morefield

Left late (from work last night)...

I noticed the Parker's Heritage Collection was up for bottling this am...Different style of bottle, heat shrink wrap, short neck, corked, flare to bell, then tapered...unusual shape.

I look forward to this. Gradually, I have come to recognize EWSB as the perhaps most professionally accomplished bourbon. Hopefully this one continues in the same vein.

Also, here´s hoping that it won´t be such a chore to track it down.

I watched them bottle it last night...

I didn't get a chance to taste it (got busy) but I did look at the proof...122.6.

Oh Yeah!
Bettye Jo, would a picture be out of the question? The bottle you describe sounds very interesting! Do we know what distribution is going to be like? Is this something that will end up at Binny's?

Hi Scott :grin:

I'll try to remember to bring my camera with me and snap a few for you.

The test samples (200 ml) were sent out Monday...

Here's the "official" press release on this new bottling :grin:

Well San Diego is the 8th largest city in the US (right behind San Antonio) so I guess I"m calling both Bevmo and Holiday to find out if they're getting this. 6,700 bottle is NOT many!

Typo in the third paragraph: "..which must be law be made in Tennessee".

Hi Bettye Jo,

Any idea if it will be for sale at the HH visitors center (or anywhere else local) by the time some of us roll into town for the festival?

Thanks,

Yesterday I asked Larry Kass for a bottle of Parker's Heritage for my party :grin: :grin:

He said yes :grin: :grin: :grin:

I asked if it's "Bourbon" and they said definitely it was bourbon :grin: :grin: :grin:

The other's will be a Rye, Corn and then a Wheat whiskey :grin: :grin: I also asked what took so long in getting information on this product. He said that they didn't get label approval until late.

I called Toddy's and asked did they have it?....They told me that they expect to have it "right before" the Bourbon Festival.

but I did look at the proof...122.6.It doesn't look like Heaven Hill is being too sensitive to the 20 something demographic.

That's Good!

Nice work Bettye Jo!
You got Mr Kass' phone number? While he's feeling generous, I might give him a call and see if he wants to send me a bottle :lol:

Would really like to try some of this - already have an email in to a local liquor store. I hope DC can get enough of this to satisfy demand...
