Heaven Hill Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky has announced the release of the spring 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey at eight years old. Comprised of barrels produced in spring of 2013, and bottled in spring of 2021, the seventh national release ushers in the latest hallmark series to the bottled-in-bond legacy.
Bottled in an ornate decanter, the spring edition denotes a green label, 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. It meets the strict requirements of a bottled-in-bond: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.
The First 8 Year Old, Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond
Acquired in 1999 by Heaven Hill, the legendary Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for its distilling pedigree and intriguing story behind its namesake, John E. Fitzgerald. The spring 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the first 8-year-old of the nationally released series and features Bourbon pulled from three different rickhouses, on different floors, and two different production dates.
Heaven Hill’s Spring 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has a suggested retail price of $85 for a 750ml bottle. The Spring 2021 release will be available on an allocated basis.
