Old Carter Whiskey Co. is celebrating Bourbon Heritage Month with big news. Following two batches of rye, Old Carter Whiskey Co. has announced the release of their first batch of Old Carter Bourbon.
Old Carter Bourbon is a small batch whiskey with a run of only 1567 bottles. It was preceded by Batch 1 and Batch 2 of Old Carter Straight Rye Whiskey, with 1269 and 1289 bottles respectively. The bourbon is bottled at cask strength, unfiltered, with a mashbill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley.
Owners Mark and Sherri Carter created the Bourbon Batch 1 blend from a selection of their favorite barrels. Sherri prefers aromatic and complex flavors, while Mark demands a powerful pour. The pair feel that this expression combines the best of both worlds.
Coming in at 108.9 proof and 54.45% ABV, the Carters encourage bourbon lovers to drink it any way one prefers – neat, on a big rock, or even with a mixer. It will be available exclusively in the state of Kentucky for a suggested retail price of $180.00.
