Woodford Reserve has announced the release of its annual holiday bottle, which features festive artwork of British architect Nick Hirst. Additionally, the iconic bourbon brand and Williams Sonoma have created a new seasonal cocktail mixer, Spiced Apple.
Hirst, who specializes in historic buildings, depicts Woodford Reserve’s “Still Room” which is at the heart of the distilling process. Titled “Copper and Stone,” this serene scene is painted in watercolor, and shows the three copper pot stills, lit from the skylights above, in the interior of the distillery building. This is the second year in a rew that Hirst’s artwork has been featured on the annual holiday bottle.
To celebrate the fall flavors of Kentucky’s apple harvest, Spiced Apple joins the Woodford Reserve and Williams Sonoma line of co-branded cocktails mixers. Made with premium apple juice and raw Demerara sugar, flavors of fragrant cinnamon, ginger and cloves round out the blend with a hint of warm, sweet spice. Pair with Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey for the perfect holiday drink to enjoy with loved ones. “The 200 flavors in the bourbon combined with the Spiced Apple make for the perfect crisp, holiday cocktail,” said Elizabeth McCall, Woodford Reserve Assistant Master Distiller.
Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris added, “A Woodford Reserve holiday bottle along with the Spiced Apple cocktail mixer make the perfect holiday pairing — and a great gift item.”
The one-liter holiday bottle is on sale across the United States and the globe for the price of $50. The Spiced Apple 16-fluid-ounce bottle is available on WilliamsSonoma.com and Williams Sonoma retail stores for $18.95.
