Heaven Hill Acquires Black Velvet

Recommended Posts

Thanx for posting this PH!   

Interesting that HH is getting into international brands, eh?   

I suppose the 1/4-billion or more was just lying about and someone said; "Hey!  Let's buy a Canadian distillery with this pile of money; and a few brands associated with it!"   When nobody said no, the deal went forward, I guess.......

Maybe HH wants to do their own version of WhistlePig, and said to hell with it, lets buy a Canadian distillery... :rolleyes:

Heaven Hill seems to be on top of the bourbon explosion.  It only makes sense they expand their presence across spirits universe.  At least, they didn't buy Aqua Velvet.  That would be outside their core expertise.

HH is a great distillery, Im sure this is a good move financially. I remember way back in the early '90s after the bars emptied a CR bottle they filled it with BV and no one knew the difference.

Hmmmm, a pretty good reason to resist that temptation to drop a hundred bux on that bargain pour of Pappy-23 at the never-before-visited tavern on vacay?  :o
