The Distillery

Heaven Hill Distillery is the largest independent, family owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the United States. Founded by the Shapira family in 1934, Heaven Hill is the only distillery that is currently producing and aging all styles of American whiskey - Bourbon, rye, corn and wheat whiskeys. Their knowledge and expertise in the industry has allowed them to launch many award-winning brands including Evan Williams, Elijah Craig and Parker’s Heritage Collection. And now, Larceny.

Larceny’s Master Distiller, Denny Potter, has spent 14 years in distillery operations and now has the enviable position of ensuring that the Bourbon produced at Heaven Hill Distillery possesses the same high quality and consistent taste consumers have come to expect. In addition to the distillation and production, Denny is also charged with safe-guarding the world’s second largest inventory of aging Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey—with over 1.2 million barrels peacefully aging in open rick warehouses.

As Master Distiller, Denny benefits from the expertise and sage counsel of Heaven Hill Master Distiller Emeritus Parker Beam, who despite battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, continues to consult and advise, along with his son Craig Beam, on the production and aging of Heaven Hill’s American Whiskey portfolio. Between their counsel and Denny’s commitment to the craft, the whiskey produced and aged at Heaven Hill will honor the legacy of Parker and continue the tradition of his family’s intense focus on quality and consistency.
