Bluegrass Distillers Announces Release of its First 4 Year Old Bottled-In-Bond High Rye Bourbon Whiskey
As more craft spirits makers mature we are starting to see more Bottled-in-Bond bourbon whiskies popping up. One such craft spirits maker is Bluegrass Distillers of Lexington, Kentucky. Bluegrass Distillers was founded in 2012 and has been patiently waiting to uncork their first bottled-in-bond bourbon.
This new release is a limited bottling from only a handful of barrels. This high rye bourbon was made with a mash bill of 80% corn and 20% rye. The distiller says this bourbon is a true high rye that showcases the best flavors the grain has to offer. The bottle artworks will feature metallic bronze lettering and a jockey silk logo emblazed on the bottle, calling to mind both the spicy nature of winning Kentucky thoroughbreds and a meticulously hand-crafted rye bourbon.
“It’s crazy to think that our first batches were made way back in 2013, and now here we are about to release our first Bottled-in-Bond bourbon. We’ve been blessed to have a team committed to crafting high quality Bluegrass Distillers bourbon for almost seven years now,” said Co-Founder and Owner Sam Rock. “We couldn’t have gotten to this point without the support of our community and team. We’re excited to finally share this bourbon with everyone.”
There will only be 200 bottles available for pre-purchase, retailing for $55. The bourbon is available for pre-order online now and will be ready for pick up on July 20th. More bottles will be available for in-store purchase. The remaining bottles will be distributed to select locations.
