Bardstown Bourbon Company and Copper & Kings Announce the Release of Collabor&tion 10-Year Finished Bourbons

The Bardstown Bourbon Company and Copper & Kings American Brandy Company are celebrating the spirit of partnership with the release of their new two part Collabor&tion project.

“Collabor&tion is the first of many original releases from the Bardstown Bourbon Company,” said David Mandell, President & CEO, the Bardstown Bourbon Company. “We’ve built our company by working together with many of the leaders in the spirits industry, and our philosophy of collaboration is reflected in the brands we’re developing, the companies we partner with, and the Kentucky communities that we represent.”

The project comes in two distinct products – both begun with 10-year straight Bourbon whiskey, with one finished in Copper & Kings American Brandy barrels and another in Muscat Mistelle barrels. Both were aged more than 18 months in the Copper & Kings basement maturation style.

The original Bourbon used in Collabor&tion was distilled in Indiana in 2006 by Lawrenceburg Distillers, now MGP, and is made from 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley. The Collabor&tion expression aged in Copper & Kings American brandy barrels is bottled at cask strength of 113 proof. The Mistelle barrel finish is bottled at cask strength of 94 proof. Both come with a suggested retail price of $124.99.

Collabor&tion is a very limited release that is only available in select Kentucky retail stores, at the BBCo and C&K gift shops, and a small selection of fine retailers across the USA.
