Fourth edition of Brown-Forman's King of Kentucky hits shelves
Brown-Forman has announced the release of the fourth edition of King of Kentucky.
A brand that dates back to 1881, King of Kentucky was acquired by Brown-Forman in 1936, when it was changed from a bourbon to a blended whiskey. It was discontinued in 1968, before being revived again in 2018. It has now been released annually since as a single-barrel bourbon, bottled at barrel-strength and minimally filtered.
This edition is made up of about 2,700 bottles from 33 barrels selected by Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris. These barrels were aged over 14 years and came from two production days, distilled 12 days apart.
Similar to last year's release, this edition will be primarily available in Kentucky, with some limited distribution in Illinois and Ohio. It will be available for a suggested price of $250.
