As part of Heaven Hill's ongoing visitor center expansion, we have a look at a couple really interesting offerings that will be available exclusively at the distillery as part of the Bottle Your Own Tour:

  • The first release is a commemorative Heaven Hill Bourbon Experience Barrel Proof bottling, aged a minimum of 8 years.
  • It will be joined by a barrel-proof expression of Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey, aged 7 years.

In 2018, Heaven Hill announced a $65 million expansion, including an expanded visitor center experience. At the time, the press release included this detail:

A “You Do Bourbon” immersive space, where guests will be able to participate in hands-on laboratory learning experiences and bottle their own Bourbon.

The labels of these upcoming releases describes the experience as using "barrels specifically selected for the Bottle Your Own Tour at the Heaven Hill Bourbon Experience. This customized experience allows guests to handcraft and label their own one-of-a-kind bottle and take it home to enjoy both the memories of their visit as well as the exceptionally smooth taste." 

Both expressions use the same commemorative strip over the cork. No word on pricing or when they'll start being available.
