Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky announced the start of a new tradition back in early 2018 with the release of its first Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. That was the Spring 2018 release, then came the Fall 2018 release and now the third release in the series was distilled and barreled in September 2005 then gently aged until it was bottled in February 2019.
Spring 2019 Green Label
Bottled in Bond bourbons have two distilling seasons – Spring and Fall. Like many distilled spirits definitions they are not as simple as they sound. The Spring distilling season technically runs in the Winter, Spring and Summer from January 1 through June 30 while Fall distilling season runs in the Summer, Fall and Winter from July 1 through December 31.
As with the previous releases, the 2019 bourbon is bottled in an ornate decanter, the spring edition denotes a green label, which will stay consistent across all spring releases. As was the case for the past editions, this edition’s tax strip, which has always been a signature of transparency on bottled-in-bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled.
