If you missed the first headlines on Lux Row Distillers’ three Daviess County bourbons, there’s a good reason – this line of blended and finished bourbons arrived in February of 2020, just days before we were stockpiling toilet paper instead of bourbon. But if you’ve missed out on drinking them since, Lux Row has announced a fourth member for you, in partnership with Ducks Unlimited.

The Daviess County bourbons begin with a blend of Lux Row’s barrels of sweet, soft wheated bourbon and spicy ryed bourbons. The Daviess County flagship bourbon, found in a blue labeled bottled, features this blend bottled at 96 proof, while the red label features the blend finished in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, and the white label contains the same blend finished in French Oak casks.

The new Daviess County Double Barrel is finished in charred Missouri white oak barrels with toasted heads, complete with a black Ducks Unlimited branded label and a shotgun pun in the name, bottled at the line’s standard 96 proof.

“The double-barrel finishing process that goes into Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is a perfect nod to our Ducks Unlimited partnership, and it brings a unique flavor profile to our latest Daviess County offering,” said Lux Row Master Distiller Rempe. “Expect a nose that includes crisp, toasted-oak notes, caramel and vanilla; sweet caramel, honey and toasted-marshmallow flavors on the palate, and a finish of caramelized sugar and lingering dark chocolate compliments of the toasted head finish.”

“We are thrilled to have Lux Row Distillers as an official licensed partner of DU, and we’re excited to see this high-quality bourbon come to life,” said DU Managing Director of Corporate Relations Jim Alexander. “Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is certain to be highly sought after by DU members and supporters, and we’re proud of our partnership with the team at Lux Row Distillers.”

Bottles of the new Daviess County Double Barrel bourbon will arrive on shelves later this September for a suggested retail price of around $50.
