12th Edition Barrel Finished Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Parker’s Heritage is a limited-edition range created to honour the late Master Distiller at Heaven Hill, Parker Beam. Always some of the most innovative and sought-after Bourbons around, the 12th Edition is one of the most unique yet. Barrel Finish spent seven-to-eight years maturing on the upper levels of Heaven Hill’s Rickhouse Q and was then finished in French orange curacao barrels for four months. How this sweet liqueur doesn’t overpower the Bourbon is a mystery, but it doesn’t. In fact, it seems to enrich the flavours of woody spices, coconut granola, peanut brittle and sweet vanilla, then layer floral and candied orange peel notes alongside them. Parker’s Heritage 12th Edition Barrel Finish is an intriguing and completely original Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey to sip neat, but it also makes a world-beating Whiskey Sour and Old Fashioned.
Parker Beam followed in the family footsteps; Jim Beam being his great uncle as well as the creator of the world’s top-selling Bourbon that carries his name. Working in the top echelons of American Whiskey for around five decades, Parker was responsible for creating Evan Williams, the world’s second most popular Bourbon. So the heritage and pedigree here is phenomenal. In 2010 Parker Beam was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Sadly he passed away in 2017, but all recent releases of Parker’s Heritage have made a donation of its proceeds to the ALS Association.
