Another wonderful release in Bardstown’s Collaboration series aged nine years and finished for eighteen months in Red Wine casks.
Bardstown Bourbon Company is a remarkable facility recently expanded to produce six million proof gallons of Spirit per year — making it one of the largest distilleries in the world. But it is also a gleaming, modern building with sharp edges and the latest in scientific tools for great Whisky-making.
Founded in 2013 with production hitting full stride in 2015, they started by filling their rickhouses with sourced Spirits to support their construction. With massive amounts of product pre-sold out into the future, they are the central production hub for dozens of famous brands — including Jefferson’s, High West, James E. Pepper, and many more. But they carve out a selection to release under their own band as well.
Bardstown Bourbon Company will be a significant force in the industry for generations to come.
In the middle of their exemplary run of product, Bardstown finds the time to come out with interesting — and even exciting — special editions to delight and entertain us. The latest release in their "Collaboration" series is Bardstown The Prisoner.
Following the well-received previous release in this series (Phifer Pavitt Reserve), Bardstown The Prisoner is a nine year-old Tennessee Bourbon finished a full additional eighteen months in French oak casks used to age the Red Wine from The Prisoner winery in the Napa Valley town of Saint Helena. We’ve had the chance to taste a dram of this stuff along with a lot of other folks in the industry — it’s REALLY good.
