Lux Row Distillers and Ducks Unlimited (DU) have announced the release of Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon.
As an official licensed partner of DU, Lux Row Distillers created a new Daviess County Bourbon variant that features a unique flavor profile, DU-branded packaging and a name meant appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and bourbon drinkers alike, the company says.
DU is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving North America’s disappearing waterfowl habitats. Established in 1937, Ducks Unlimited has conserved more than 15 million acres thanks to contributions from more than a million supporters across the continent.
“We are thrilled to have Lux Row Distillers as an official licensed partner of DU, and we’re excited to see this high-quality bourbon come to life,” says DU Managing Director of Corporate Relations Jim Alexander. “Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is certain to be highly sought after by DU members and supporters, and we’re proud of our partnership with the team at Lux Row Distillers.”
Finished in Missouri white-oak barrels with toasted heads, Daviess County Double Barrel was created by Lux Row Master Distiller and long-time DU member, John Rempe. Double Barrel features a mashbill that is similar to the other Daviess County Bourbon variants, along with the same proof level (96 proof).
“The double-barrel finishing process that goes into Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is a perfect nod to our Ducks Unlimited partnership, and it brings a unique flavor profile to our latest Daviess County offering,” says Rempe. “Expect a nose that includes crisp, toasted-oak notes, caramel and vanilla; sweet caramel, honey and toasted-marshmallow flavors on the palate, and a finish of caramelized sugar and lingering dark chocolate compliments of the toasted head finish.”
Available for purchase beginning mid-September, Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon has a limited supply offering at a suggested retail price of $49.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
DU members can sample and bid on Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon at a series of DU events to be announced later this year.
