Unlike Heaven Hill Bourbon, which is a 100% straight bourbon and can only be made with uncut natural ingredients that include corn, malted barley and rye, Heaven Hill blended whiskeys can employ a less expensive and wider range of ingredients and production methods. In fact, Heaven Hill Kentucky Whiskey is only 20% straight bourbon and 80% neutral grain spirits (similar to grain alcohol with no color or smell). Neutral grain spirits can be aged in used oak barrels or not aged at all, while "straight" bourbon must be aged a minimum of two years in newly charred oak barrels and must not be distilled to such a high level of alcohol content that the flavor of the original mash is removed.
Heaven Hill Distilleries also produces five other blended whiskies: Gukenheimer, Kentucky Deluxe, Kentucky Beau, T. W. Samuels and Wilson.
