2020 WHISKEY OF THE YEAR AT WWA & DOUBLE GOLD! The secret is out. Larceny Barrel Proof is the first Wheated Bourbon to ever win this award and we have them freshly emptied.
Steal a taste the same way John E. Fitzgerald once did: uncut & straight from the barrel. This is the first Wheated Bourbon to ever be named Whisky Advocate's “Whisky of the Year.” Out of thousands of Bourbons, only a handful are Wheated Bourbons. Larceny is made with wheat instead of rye as the secondary grain, and has 25% more wheat than other Wheated Bourbons. That makes for a softer, rounder sipping experience. 68% Corn, 20% Wheat & 12% Malted Barley.
WHISKY ADVOCATE NAMES LARCENY BARREL PROOF #1 WHISKY OF 2020
Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon was named Whisky Advocate’s 2020 “Whisky of the Year,” the second time Heaven Hill Distillery has received that honor in the past four years. Elijah Craig Rye Whiskey was also named #7 in the 2020 lineup. Both products join previous winners Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, named the 2017 Whisky of the Year, and Heaven Hill Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon, which earned #4 in 2019 on Whisky Advocate’s renowned and highly anticipated top 20 listing.
As noted in the Whisky Advocate Fall 2020 Buying Guide, “Larceny’s barrel proof expression…is a treat worth waiting for.” Whisky Advocate’s Top 20 are chosen each year from a collection of the highest-rated whiskeys nominated by the Buying Guide reviewers, and ranked based on quality, value, and availability.
This year’s awards are especially exciting in that they demonstrate Heaven Hill’s top ten recognition for four unique whiskey expressions made with three different mash bills since 2017: our traditional Bourbon mashbill made with rye, our wheated Bourbon, and our Rye Whiskey mashbill. It’s an honor to be awarded for an exceptional consistency across our diverse portfolio of American Whiskeys.
“For 85 years, the Heaven Hill Distillery team’s commitment to quality and perseverance has set the course for our historic brands to thrive,” said Master Distiller Conor O’Driscoll. “Rooted in a storied brand, Larceny’s relatively new appearance to the category has inspired our innovation process. For two of our mashbills to receive the highest Whisky Advocate recognition in their purest, barrel proof forms is a testament to Heaven Hill’s distilling legacy.”
