This holiday season, a trilogy isn’t reserved just for plays or movies. The Blood Oath line from Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown, Kentucky is releasing its own trilogy of custom blended bourbons including Pact No. 1, 2 and 3.
Lux Row says the three Pacts included in the trilogy are well-bred Bourbons, bottled by hand at 98.6 proof.
Pact No. 1 combines a spicy seven-year Bourbon with a rye mash bill, barrel aged for a subtle woodiness, along with a six-year smooth, wheated Bourbon and a 12-year full-bodied, more experienced, oaky Bourbon with a rye-based mash.
Pact No. 2 offers a seven-year rye Bourbon finished in port barrels for a velvety sweet finish, artfully joined by an 11-year wheated Bourbon and an 11-year rye Bourbon.
Pact No. 3 brings a masterful union of three rye Bourbons – a 12-year rye Bourbon joined by a seven-year rye Bourbon and, to add an unforgettable layer of complexity, another seven-year rye finished in cabernet sauvignon barrels.

“Hand-selecting just the right Bourbons that meld together and balance each other out, being able to finish some of them in port and cabernet sauvignon barrels, and tasting that final product has been rewarding,” says John Rempe, head distiller and creator of Blood Oath. “This series has tapped into my creativity and I look forward to creating new Pacts – work has already begun on Pact No. 5 for next spring.”
The Blood Oath limited release series trilogy pack – including Pact No. 1, 2 and 3 – is available in ultra-limited quantities. Only 900 packs have been released nationwide. Twenty five of these will be available at the recently opened Lux Row distillery starting on November 23, 2018. The new distillery and visitor center, located in the Bourbon Capital of the World, includes a visitor center, barrel warehouses, a tasting room, and event space, making for an all-encompassing Bourbon experience. The 90-acre property is home to an 18th century stone house – which is registered as a National Historic Place – and a long, tree-lined driveway providing a scenic entrance to the distillery.
The Blood Oath Trilogy Pack includes three 750ml bottles and retails for $599.
