- COLLABORATIVE SERIES #2: The 2nd iteration of its collaboration with Calistoga-based winemaker Phifer Pavitt

- DISCOVERY SERIES #4
COLLABORATIVE SERIES #2
Bardstown Bourbon Company Phifer Pavitt Collaborative Series (100 proof/50% ABV) $124.99/750mL
The latest addition to Bardstown Bourbon Company’s Collaborative Series features an exceptional 10-year-old Tennessee whiskey finished for 18 months in Phifer Pavitt’s decadent cabernet sauvignon barrels.
“This collaboration is the epitome of Phifer Pavitt’s mission to swing for the fences,” said owner Suzanne Phifer Pavitt.
The 2019 Bardstown Bourbon Company Phifer Pavitt Reserve was awarded both Double Gold and Best in Class for finished bourbons at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
FUSION SERIES #4
Bardstown Bourbon Company Fusion Series 4 (94.9 proof/47.45% ABV) $59.99/750mL
Each blended bourbon in the series is created and voted on by team members from the distilling, culinary, beverage and visitors experience programs in a blind tasting tournament-style process.
The winning Fusion #4 recipe features a blend of a 13-year-old bourbon and three of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s own three and four-year-old products, which was developed by visitors experience representative Vince Metcalfe.
“I am really honored that my blend was chosen by the panel, especially since it was my first time having been part of the process,” said Metcalfe. “Being part of the visitors experience team, I get to see people try our products for the first time every day, so I am excited for others to try this blend.”
DISCOVERY SERIES #4
Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series 4 (115 proof/57.5% ABV) $129.99/750mL
Discovery Series #4 includes a high-rye 13-year-old bourbon alongside 15 and 10-year-old bourbons, and was created by Bardstown Bourbon Company Kitchen & Bar executive chef James-Stuart Plush.
“I am really pleased with the final product and think that the age comes through,” said chef Stu. “While it is bottled at 115 proof, it is definitely something that I personally would be able to sip neat.”
Bardstown Bourbon Company’s products are now available in Kentucky, Indiana, Texas, Ohio and Colorado through Republic National Distributing Company; California, Nevada and Florida through Southern Glazers Wine and Spirits; Nashville and Chattanooga, Tennessee through Ajax Turner Distributing Company; Knoxville and Memphis through Empire Distributing of Tennessee; Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Delaware through Prestige-Ledroit Distributing; and Illinois through Momentum Beverage Team.
And if you haven’t been to the Bardstown Bourbon Company distillery campus, it’s a must see. Aside from the Distillery, their restaurant and cocktail program are incredible. Think Field of Dreams only instead of baseball in the middle of a corn field, there’s a sensational modern state-of-the-art Bourbon Experience awaiting you – in the middle of a cornfield. Given Bourbon’s main mash ingredient, this seems quite appropriate:) Thanks for reading everyone, and as always, CHEERS!
