Heaven Hill Distillery has announced the release of the spring 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey at eight years old. Comprised of barrels produced in spring 2013, and bottled in spring 2021, the seventh national release ushers in the latest hallmark series to the Kentucky brand’s bottled-in-bond legacy.
Bottled in an ornate decanter, the spring edition denotes a green label, consistent across all spring releases. As was the case for the past editions, this edition’s tax strip, which has always been a signature of transparency on bottled-in-bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled. The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond spring 2021 edition will be available in the 750ml size on an allocated basis. It meets the strict requirements of a bottled-in-bond: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume. The edition is available at a suggested retail price of $85.
The spring 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the first 8-year-old of the nationally released series and features Bourbon pulled from three different rickhouses, on different floors, and two different production dates. Acquired in 1999 by Heaven Hill, the legendary Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for its distilling pedigree and intriguing story behind its namesake, John E. Fitzgerald.

Last year, the Heaven Hill Distillery celebrated its 85th anniversary with the release of a 13 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The one-time-only offering joins the iconic Kentucky company‘s collection of whiskies that also includes Elijah Craig and Evan Williams.
The Heaven Hill 85th Anniversary 13 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a single barrel, limited edition release. Distilled on December 13, 2006 and dumped on Dec 13, 2019, it honors the anniversary and date Heaven Hill first filled a bottle with Bourbon in 1935. It was aged on the second floor of Rickhouse G on Heaven Hill’s main Bardstown campus. Bottled at 107 proof, it’s the same ABV as Heaven Hill’s original barrel entry release back in 1935, and non-chill filtered.
