About the Whiskeys
Blade & Bow
A homage to the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery, Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey uses a unique Solera System aging process to preserve some of the distillery’s oldest whiskey stocks, including some of the last bourbon produced there before it closed in 1992. The solera liquid is mingled with other fine whiskies aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller.
Old Forester 1910
The fourth member of the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series, which invites bourbon lovers to taste their way through Old Forester history through each unique expression. In 1910, a fire on the bottling line halted the production of Old Forester. Mature whisky that was ready to be bottled was instead was transferred and stored in a secondary barrel. What emerged from that second barrel was a delightful whisky, remarkable enough to become an entirely new expression – Old Fine Whisky.
Rabbit Hole Dareringer
Dareringer is a straight bourbon that is aged in new toasted and charred oak barrels and then finished in Casknolia Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks. Batches are relatively small at no more than 15 barrels, however batch numbers are not provided on each bottle.
