Larceny Barrel Proof
Larceny Barrel Proof is a wheated bourbon produced by Heaven Hill Distillery. As its name implies, it is bottled at cask strength and is non-chill filtered.
It shares its mashbill with the 92-proof Larceny Small Batch Bourbon, a year-round offering, as well as the Old Fitzgerald lineup. Heaven Hill’s wheated mashbill consists of 20% wheat, a relatively large amount of wheat in comparison to recipes from other distilleries. For example, Maker’s Mark has a 16% wheat recipe.
The Larceny brands prominently feature John E. Fitzgerald’s signature and a lock and key motif, a nod to the U.S. Treasury Agent who Heaven Hill says had access to the rickhouses and used that access to steal jugs of some of the best bourbon in the warehouse.2Larceny Bourbon – Our Legacy
Larceny Barrel Proof was announced in October 2019 and is released three times each year.
Like Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, Larceny is released three times each year, with batches numbered in the same format. The first is whether it’s the A, B, or C batch (first, second, or third release of the year), the second is the month and the last two represent the year. For example, batch A120 is the first batch of the year (A), released in January (1) of 2020 (20).
