Originally built in Bardstown, KY and owned by William Heavenhill, Heaven Hill Distillery has the second largest inventory of aging whiskey in the world. During the Great Depression, cash was scarce and economic confidence was low. But post-Prohibition America was still thirsty for great whiskey, and Bardstown had loads of distilling talent. Combining the two made an obvious business opportunity. But as fortune favors the bold, so does the art and business of making whiskey.
