Bardstown Bourbon Company has unveiled Destillaré Orange Curaçao Finish. The latest addition to the Kentucky Distillery’s Collaborative Series, the new Whiskey was made in collaboration with Louisville-based distillery Copper & Kings American Brandy Company.
The Bardstown Bourbon Destillaré Orange Curaçao Finish is a nine-year-old Tennessee Bourbon finished for 18 months in Destillaré Orange Curaçao barrels. The new addition to the series comes just a week after the two distilleries unveiled a Sherry Finish Bourbon.
“A brilliant orange nose takes the lead over a rich blend of baking spice, vanilla and maple,” said Bardstown Bourbon Co. Vice President of Sales & Marketing Herb Heneman. “The bright citrus awakens the palate and leads to a magnificent, long lasting finish with just a touch of sweetness. You see a lot of ‘top shelf’ margaritas or martinis, but never has there been a better base for a ‘top shelf’ old fashioned than this incredible release.”
Bardstown Bourbon Company’s Destillaré Orange Curaçao finish expands the distillery’s Collaborative Series, a line of Bourbons that have been finished in an array of wine, beer, and spirits barrels. It is the sixth collaboration with fellow Kentucky distillery Copper & Kings. Prior collaborations include Bourbons finished in American brandy, Muscat Mistelle, Oloroso Sherry and Apple brandy barrels, the latter of which was awarded a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
“There’s a lot of satisfaction in developing and shaping whiskey into surprising and adventurous profiles,” said Copper & Kings founder and CEO Joe Heron. “The collaboration with kindred spirits is what truly polishes the liquid. The infusion of friendship is what brings the magic.”
Coming in at 50% ABV, the Bardstown Bourbon Destillaré Orange Curaçao is priced at $124.99 per 750 ml bottle. It can be found in Kentucky, Indiana, Texas, Ohio, Colorado, California, Nevada, Florida, Tennessee, Maryland, Illinois, Washington, D.C. and Delaware.
