Activities at Heaven Hill Distilleries have been fast and furious in recent weeks.
• The Kentucky company’s Burnett’s Flavored Vodka line has been expanded by the addition of Limeade and Orange Cream, expanding its range of flavored vodkas to 23.
The first 21 (shown above right) are Blueberry, Cherry, Citrus, Coconut, Cranberry, Espresso, Fruit Punch, Grape, Lime, Mango, Orange, Peach, Pink Lemonade, Pomegranate, Raspberry, Sour Apple, Strawberry, Sweet Tea, Vanilla and Watermelon.
The vodkas are available in 1.75L, 1.0L, 750ml, and 50ml sizes, bottled at 35% alcohol by volume (70 proof). Suggested retail price is $9.99 for a 750ml.
• The company’s Christian Brothers Brandy has added a Honey version, being rolled out nationally this month.
• Yesterday, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear cut the symbolic ribbon at Heaven Hill’s Bardstown, KY, headquarters to help dedicate Rickhouse “J.” The new whiskey aging warehouse is part of a nearly $5 million expansion to the company’s bourbon barrel storage capacity, the second largest in the world at 900,000 barrels.
