Shortly after Prohibition ended in the United States, Heaven Hill Brands, was founded in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Shapira family to produce and market Bourbon and premium American whiskeys. At the time, it was as speculative a new business venture as the dot com start-ups of the 1990’s — a company founded with no brands, no available stocks of whiskey, and at the height of the Great Depression. Today, the company is the largest independent, family-owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country. According to industry analysts, Heaven Hill is now the seventh largest spirits supplier in the United States and second largest holder of aging Bourbon whiskey in the world with an inventory in excess of 1,000,000 barrels.
In a city known for both its bourbon and its basketball, it’s only appropriate that the home of the University of Louisville basketball team would be stocked with the Kentucky spirit…Although the KFC Yum! Center serves a variety of beer and cocktails at its concession stands, the most advertised alcoholic beverages are those made in Kentucky and Calhoun Construction Services was proud to build the Heaven Hill Bar on the main course.
Calhoun Construction Services served as the General Contractor for the Heaven Hill Bar on the main course in the KFC Yum! Center.
