Parker was recently diagnosed with ALS, but will continue to work at Heaven Hill as long as his health allows. Heaven Hill plans to donate $20 from each bottle of the 2013 Parker’s Heritage Collection whiskey to the ALS Association to establish a fund in Parker’s honor. I’ll be buying one, and hope you will too.
