Blade and Bow has re-released its 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, as it does each September in homage to National Bourbon Heritage Month. Aged and bottled at the historic Stitzel-Weller Distillery, it is available in 14 markets and at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery and Garden & Gun Club in Louisville, KY while supplies last.
“An ultra-premium bourbon, Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old is complex and enticing. I liken 22-Year-Old’s tasting notes to a freshly baked apple pie, fragrant and delicious,” said Doug Kragel, Lead Educator for Blade and Bow. “With an aroma layered with oak, caramel, and fresh stone fruit, this highly acclaimed bourbon is sweet and smoky, accented with well-balanced tasting notes of torched sugar and apples baked in honey and spices.”
Consumers can try 22-Year-Old for themselves year-round at The Garden & Gun Club at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery. The 22-Year-Old Tasting Experience includes one ounce of Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old in a handcrafted Terrane glass, alongside a signature wool tartan bag, Blade and Bow enamel pin and tasting notes guide.
Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is available now in the following markets: California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery.
Stitzel-Weller is hallowed ground for American Distilling. In 1935, Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle first opened the distillery on Derby Day. It would continue making whiskey until the doors shut in 1992. Mammoth parent spirit company Diageo bought SWD as it now serves as the brand home for Blade & Bow, rejuvenated IW Harper, and Orphan Barrel. Liquid isn’t distilled at SW, it’s more like Bourbon shrine meets museum.
