Larceny Bourbon

Larceny Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (0.7l, 46%)

Not "just" a great Bourbon, it’s one of the top 20 Spirits in the world… bar none.

Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grow to become the seventh largest supplier of Spirits in the US. BUT… they are still family owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. God bless the Shapira family! The Spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill includes Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.

Some Bourbons put wheat into their mash bill as a cost-cutting measure. But Larceny does so with serious intent — loud and proud. This is a wheated Bourbon with just a touch of rye and barley. It's sweeter and smoother and perfectly crafted with notes of fresh-baked bread, butterscotch, and a finish that is both sweet and savory. And the Bourbon-loving world takes this dram seriously — it pulled down a Double Gold Medal (unanimous decision), has been named a "Best Buy," and was ranked #18 among the Top 120 Spirits in the world by the Spirit Journal. 

Smartass Corner:
Back in the day, John E. Fitzgerald was a federal treasury agent assigned to guard and certify the Heaven Hill Bourbon rick-houses. During the evening hours he would slip in to "sample" the barrels. They named the brand Ol’ Fitzgerald after him — Larceny Bourbon is a tribute to the Whiskey he stole while "protecting" it.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
In 1996, more than 90,000 barrels, and one of their production buildings were destroyed in a fire. That's almost 24 million bottles-worth of premium American Whiskey. Rivers of flaming spirit were flowing in and around the distillery.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
