Parker Beam

Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. will be working with the ALS Association Kentucky Chapter to promote awareness and fundraising for efforts to battle the disease, in the early stages of which legendary 6th Generation Master Distiller Parker Beam has been recently diagnosed.

The ALS Association has established a special fund, known as the Parker Beam's Promise of Hope Fund, into which $20 for each bottle of next fall’s Parker’s Heritage Collection sold will be donated. Although the details and quantities of the next Parker’s Parker Haritage (Small)Heritage Collection release will not be made public for some time, Heaven Hill expects to produce sufficient quantities to aid in research to combat a disease which affects over 30,000 Americans at any given time.


2014 Hunting for a Cure Banquet

Mitch EnsorWith great sadness, the 7th annual Mitch Ensor’s Hunting for a Cure Banquet will be without our fearless leader.  Mitch was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in March 2006 and was told he had 2-5 years to live. Little did ALS know, Mitch would not go down easy!  He was able to attend the last banquet on March 16, 2013 and stayed strong until he joined his heavenly father on March 25, 2013, after a seven year battle with this dreadful disease.   This year’s banquet, on March 29, 2014, will be in memory of Mitch, one year from the day he was laid to rest.
