Heaven Hill Celebrates Grand Opening of its $19 Million Immersive Visitor Center Expansion and it’s Spectacular

“Our family has been involved in this iconic business since the very early part of the modern inception in 1935, now some 85 years ago. That was when my dad and his brothers in the middle of the great depression with no production facility, no inventory, no brands, no knowledge of how to operate a distillery, made a very speculative investment in what was a struggling and fledgling enterprise.

“Fast forwarding, it’s been a long time since those early days with numerous starts and stops along the way. But I know how genuinely proud they would be of what we have been presenting today.”

Heaven Hill Distillery President Max L. Shapira
