The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. has unveiled the latest release from the company: Fable & Folly Finest Quality Whiskey Aged 14 Years.

Fable & Folly is a blend that includes the last remaining stocks of previous releases Barterhouse, Forged Oak and various Rhetoric releases, the company says.

“Fable & Folly honors the quality ingredients that go into it and the ethos of the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. as a whole,” says Master Blender Andrew Mackay. “In my discoveries of the six orphaned stocks that are part of Fable & Folly, it became clear that blending them would both highlight and enhance the nuances that make these liquids so special. Fable & Folly tells the stories of whiskeys past while exciting aficionados and collectors with a unique new spirit that stands the test of time.”  


Fable & Folly has spicy notes of rye and pepper, the company reports. It begins with spice and warms to a smooth richness with notes of syrup and fruit.

The spirit animal displayed on the bottle pays homage to the blend. It’s a hybrid of the three signature animals of the whiskeys from which Fable & Folly came: a stag, a hummingbird and a fox.


Fable & Folly is available nationwide at retail, and through ReserveBar, Drizly.com or the Drizly app where shipping and delivery are available. The suggested retail price is $149.99 per 750-ml. bottle.

Owned by Diageo, the Orphan Barrel line focuses on rare, limited-release, higher-age statement whiskeys.

This follows the recent release of Orphan Barrel Muckety-Muck 25 Year Old Scotch.
