    Brand Names

    I am looking for the 3 brands of the Heaven Hill Distillery that were named after historical or key founding figures of competitive distilleries and the CURRENT competitors they are associated with. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Wow, must be an intense game of bar trivia tonight!

    I'm probably wrong but here goes...

    JTS Brown- named for members of the Brown family of Brown-Forman

    Mattingly & Moore- the Moore was Tom Moore who also founded the distillery that is now Barton-1792.

    Bernheim- Named for I.W. Bernheim, founder of IW Harper bourbon currently owned by Diageo

    Also I think HH used to make a bourbon called Beam & Beam, named for members of the Beam family.

    Just thought of an even better one:

    TW Samuels- Founded by an ancestor of Bill Samuels, founder of Maker's Mark
