Lux Row Distillers just hit its one year anniversary since the grand opening of its own distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. To celebrate the anniversary the distillery is releasing Lux Row Distillers Double Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey a 12-year old bourbon.
The new limited edition bourbon brings together two selected 12-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon barrels that were bottled together at barrel strength for its own taste and finish.
“We wanted to do something unique to commemorate the opening of Lux Row Distillers so I tasted through many barrels to find the ones that would complement each other perfectly creating a well-balanced, flavorful bourbon,” says Head Distiller John Rempe. “Each two barrel combinations will be slightly different but will have strong caramel and vanilla notes, with a warm and spicy finish.”

The high rye mash bill cask strength bourbon was bottled at 118.4 proof to line up with its 2018 April grand opening. The packaging includes a custom Lux Row Distillers embossed bottle, real metal labels and is topped with a solid copper cork. In addition, each bottle’s label includes the barrel numbers and age statements of the barrels selected. The back label tells the story of the grand opening, a celebration of the distillery’s first year.
