Heaven Hill Distillery has announced the 2018 limited-edition release of Parker’s Heritage Collection, which is comprised of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished in orange curaçao barrels. This is the 12th edition of the collection and the second time Heaven Hill has partnered with Master Blender Alain Royer to create a barrel-finished offering.
For this limited-edition, Bourbon was aged seven to eight years in the upper floors of Rickhouse Q, and then aged for an additional four months in barrels that previously held French orange curaçao liqueur.
It was bottled at 110 proof (55% abv) and non-chill filtered to preserve all the flavor compounds. The orange curaçao finish lends a unique flavor that complements the Bourbon without overpowering it, creating an entirely new and elegant tasting experience.
Parker’s Heritage Collection was originally conceived to showcase the extraordinary quality and broad range of Heaven Hill’s American Whiskey holdings, and to honor the late Heaven Hill Master Distiller Parker Beam, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2010.
