Woodford Reserve unveiled today its new Woodford Reserve Baccarat Edition.
This limited offering — $1,500 a bottle and available exclusively in Duty-Free Stores for one year starting May 2019 — is further aged in XO cognac casks at the Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky. After the initial run in Duty-Free, the plan is to bring the product to retail.
The partnership between Baccarat and Woodford Reserve exemplifies Woodford Reserve’s ability to stay at the forefront of innovation within the global spirits industry, says Master Distiller Chris Morris.
The bottle design is meant to evoke the iconic Woodford Reserve bottle silhouette and is engraved with both Woodford Reserve’s and Baccarat’s iconic logos. It is presented in a signature Baccarat red box and includes a crystal stopper adorned with Woodford Reserve’s initials.
“We are extremely proud to announce the partnership between the world’s finest bourbon and the world’s finest crystal because both represent craftsmanship at the highest level,” says Mark Bacon, global brand director for Woodford Reserve. “This partnership elevates the category of American Whiskey in the global market.”
Woodford Reserve Baccarat Edition presents at 90.4 proof, with a suggested retail price of $1,500 per 750-ml. bottle.
