The Bardstown Bourbon Company (BBCo) has announced Discovery Series #1, a blend of four Kentucky straight bourbons aged between five and 13 years.
Located on 100 acres of farmland in Bardstown, Kentucky, BBCo is a rapidly growing collaborative distilling company. BBCo currently produces nearly 40 different mash bills for different whiskey and bourbon brands.
Discovery Series #1 has deep tobacco and leather notes from the 11- and 13-year-old bourbons, baking spices from the 10-year-old bourbon, and bright fruit from the 5-year-old bourbon, the company reports.
BBCo’s team is led by Master Distiller Steve Nally, a 40-year veteran of the spirits industry, Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame member and former master distiller at Maker’s Mark; and John Hargrove, VP of manufacturing operations and former master distiller at Sazerac and Barton 1792.
“With Discovery Series #1, we’ve produced a blend that can rival any product on the market,” says Nally.
Discovery Series #1 is bottled at 121.21 proof, with a suggested retail price of $129.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It is available in highly allocated quantities in Kentucky and Indiana through Republic National Distributing Company, in California and Florida through Southern Glazers Wine and Spirits, and in Nashville and Central Tennessee through Ajax Turner Distributing Company.
In addition to distilling, BBCo has also opened an in-house restaurant, Bottle & Bond Kitchen and Bar.
