From the folks behind the Very Olde St. Nick, Rare Perfection and Wattie Boone & Sons Kentucky whiskey brands comes the resurrected Old Man Winter Bourbon, showcasing some of the very first distillate this distillery ever used.
Old Man Winter Bourbon, produced by Preservation Distillery and Farm, is drawn from a blend of “vintage stocks and pot still Preservation distillate. The wheated Preservation Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is blended with barrels of Kentucky Bourbon and some Indiana Bourbon added for a deep and well rounded flavor profile.”
Old Man Winter, like other releases from Preservation, has been produced in extremely small batches that are typically of 1-3 barrels. It is described as being “a crafted amalgamation of hand selected barrels distilled and collected over time, now coming of age.”
Bottled at 109.8 proof, this release has official tasting notes that make mention of “heavy stone fruit, layers of toasted wood and caramelized nut along with kitchen spices in partnership with an abundant nose.”
Preservation Distillery and Farm, for those that don’t know it, was founded in 2015 in Bardstown, Kentucky. It sits on a former historic 40-acre tobacco farm as a family-owned, pot-distilling craft producer.
