Kings County Distillery Debuts Blended Bourbon

Kings County Blended Bourbon

Kings County Distillery has unveiled Kings County’s Blended Bourbon. The new flagship blended bourbon is made from house-distilled straight whiskeys

“As we have done with moonshine and bottled-in-bond, making a blended bourbon is a way of asking whiskey drinkers to reconsider an overlooked category of spirit,” said co-founder and distiller Colin Spoelman. “Blended whiskey is most often associated with crowd-pleasing scotch or Canadian whiskies. We used the all-but-forgotten category of blended bourbon to create the American analog to these reliable and endlessly versatile spirits. Composed entirely of in-house, pot-distilled straight bourbon, straight corn whiskey, straight rye whiskey, and malt whiskey, our Blended Bourbon makes for a sippable, lower proof bourbon, suitable for nearly any application calling for an approachable American whiskey. In the interest of providing the drinker with the highest level of transparency and elevating a category historically associated with intentionally vague labeling practices, we list the exact blend composition on every bottle.”

By law, blended bourbon must use 51% straight bourbon, but the open-ended definition allows the Kings County’s blending team to use the full breadth of the distillery’s mature inventory to craft a complex and purposeful flavor profile within the lineup. With this added flexibility, Kings County Blended Bourbon can become a volume leader in the brand’s portfolio.

Kings County Blended Bourbon offers notes of honey, caramel, and rye pepper. It is a flexible whiskey that can be enjoyed straight or as part of a cocktail.

Kings County Distillery is New York City’s oldest and largest whiskey distillery. Founded in 2010, the brand makes handmade bourbon, rye, and other whiskeys out of the 123-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Kings County’s Blended Bourbon is priced at $54.99 and will be available throughout New York State starting on September 14th with national rollout to follow. For more information, head over to the distillery’s official website.
