If my memory is correct, today is the 10th anniversary of the Heaven Hill fire.

It is clear that Heaven Hill has risen Phoenix-like from these ashes to a position where today they are known not for a disaster, but for ever increasing production, innovation (with Bernheim wheat, the first straight wheat since at least prohibition), and bringing well aged, delicious products to the market (EC18, Rittenhouse 21).

It is also clear that the familial reputation of Kentucky bourbon makers still held true, as stills at Beam, Shively, and Bernheim were made available to help Heaven Hill weather through their setback.

Three cheers for Heaven Hill and Kentucky Bourbon!
