Bernheim distillery

Bernheim distillery, Louisville, was founded in 1992 by United Distillers, it was sold to Heaven Hill and renamed Heaven Hill Bernheim distillery in 1999. It was substantially refurbished to become Heaven Hill’s main distilling plant after the 1996 fire destroyed its earlier distilling plant in Bardstown.

Old Bernheim Distillery

In 1897 Bernheim Brothers. built their first distillery at 7th street and Bernheim Lane. Alas the old Bernheim Distillery in Louisville was not one of the most treasured distilleries of its age. Operated by the Schenley company after prohibition, it was the home to IW Harper and Old Charter bourbons until it was torn down in 1991. New Bernheim was established on the same site.
