Hirsch returns with a Bardstown-sourced, 6-year-old, single barrel bourbon
Hotaling & Co. is bringing another Hirsch release to shelves this year. According to the company's announcement on Instagram, Hirsch: The Single Barrel is rolling out now as a 6-year-old bourbon sourced from an undisclosed distillery in Bardstown, KY.
The Single Barrel uses a mash bill of 72% corn, 13% rye, and 15% malted barley. While the distillery is technically undisclosed by Hotaling, there is only one distillery in Bardstown using that mash bill: Willett.
Social media images show that it's bottled at 124 proof, but it's unclear if that will vary from barrel to barrel. No word on pricing yet, but the company did state that there will be less than 10,000 bottles available.
Hotaling & Co. relaunched the Hirsch brand last year's with the MGP-sourced "The Horizon," a blend of two whiskeys aged 5 and 6 years, respectively.
