Bluegrass Terroir – The Mystery & History of Heaven Hill’s Rickhouses
Wednesday & Friday, June 7th & 9th, 10am-3pm
Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Center, 1311 Gilkey Run Rd, Bardstown, KY
Towering Bourbon rickhouses dot the countryside of Kentucky, embracing their contents and nurturing their maturity. But beyond the barrels inside, rickhouses possess a history and wisdom that are as varied as their architecture and location.
Join us as we explore Bourbon history with local historian, Michael Veach, inside the Heaven Hill rickhouses. Your experience will include site visits to two historic rickhouse locations and one of the newest rickhouse sites in the Commonwealth, Cox’s Creek. Throughout the tour, you will grow to appreciate the complex construction and management of these massive structures but also the variance in flavors and qualities that challenge our distillers in crafting American Whiskey. Alongside Master Distiller Denny Potter, you will experience the sophisticated art of crafting whiskey aged in the 53 Heaven Hill rickhouses, by tasting various ages of whiskey straight from the barrel, as well as tasting previously released products that have aged there. Craft your own personal small batch from a selection of aged whiskey and label and bottle it on site. Take your own personal batch home, along with a box of samples of barrel proof whiskey from each rickhouse location visited.
