Heaven Hill Brands is America's largest independent family-owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits. The company was founded in 1935, just after the prohibition, by the five Shapira brothers in Bardstown, Kentucky and soon developed into one of the country’s largest whiskey producers. The idea of family is a guiding principle at Heaven Hill, providing continuity of leadership and consistency of mission in every part of the business.
Since the company was founded, the Shapira family has been a steady hand at the helm of Heaven Hill, through three generations and a multitude of changes to the industry. From the time the five founding brothers began the company, to its growth and diversification under second generation family members Max and Harry Shapira, to its current position as an acknowledged industry leader, Heaven Hill has always taken great pride in being family run. With its third generation of family management now in place with Max Shapira's son Andy Shapira, and daughter Kate S. Latts and her husband Allan Latts, the company's unique position in the industry is assured well into the future.
The Heaven Hill portfolio is exclusively distributed by the family-run spirits company BORCO-MARKEN-IMPORT in Germany and by the trade joint venture KATTUS-BORCO Vertriebs GmbH, founded by BORCO and KATTUS, in Austria. Based in Hamburg, BORCO is one of the largest German and European producers and distributors of top international spirit brands, including SIERRA Tequila, YENI Raki, DISARONNO, Champagne LANSON and the whiskys from WHYTE & MACKAY. The portfolio of the independent company covers almost all key international segments and is certainly unique in terms of its strength and unity.
