Barrell Craft Spirits (BCS) has introduced BCS Gold Label Seagrass, the top end of the popular BCS Seagrass Series, which also includes Barrell Seagrass and the limited-release BCS Gray Label Seagrass.
Available for pre-sale beginning today at BarrellBourbon.com, BCS Gold Label Seagrass features 20-year rye whiskey, sourced and finished in Martinique rum, Malmsey Madeira and apricot brandy casks. The expression was distilled in Canada, and then blended and bottled in Kentucky at cask strength, 128.12 proof.
“Gold Label Seagrass epitomizes our team’s expertise in global sourcing and blending, both in whiskey and finishing materials,” says BCS Founder Joe Beatrice. “This exceptional whiskey is remarkably flavorful, showcasing the best of the Seagrass profile in a whiskey that can only be made this complex and nuanced with time in the barrel.”
Founded in 2013 in Louisville, BCS selects and blends products that explore different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottles them at cask strength.
Beginning in mid-June, BCS Gold Label Seagrass will be available at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $499.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
