LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky distilleries are teaming up to offer a one-of-a-kind blend honoring longtime Heaven Hill Master Distiller Parker Beam.

Beam has been diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, Jim Beam, Maker's Mark, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve are each offering up a bit of their products, to create "Master Distillers Unity".

A crystal two-bottle set will be auctioned off in New York in October.

Proceeds will go to the Parker Beam Promise of Hope Fund which is raising money to find a cure for ALS.
