Bardstown Bourbon Co. is preparing two new whiskeys - one is a milestone release for the company, and the other is a unique collaboration using sourced rye whiskey.
Bardstown Bourbon Co. Origin Series Bottled in Bond Bourbon is the start of a new series for the company showcasing their own distillate. Until now, the Fusion Series has showcased blends of sourced whiskey with BBCo's own distillate, the Discovery Series was all sourced whiskey, and the Collaborative Series focused on partnerships with other wine, beer, and spirits makers.
The first release in the new Origin Series will be a 6 year old wheated bourbon, distilled at Bardstown's campus in Fall 2016. It uses a 68% corn, 20% wheat, 12% malted barley mash bill,
Bardstown Bourbon Co. Collaborative Series West Virginia Great Barrel Company Blended Rye Whiskey is a unique wood-finished rye. For this whiskey, the company sourced 6 year old rye from MGP and filled infrared toasted cherry and oak hybrid barrels, where they were aged for an additional 10 weeks. After finishing, it is then blended with 12-year-old Canadian rye whiskey.
