Old Elk Distillery has rolled out the second annual release of Master Distiller Greg Metze’s Infinity Blend Series.
This new limited release is built upon the foundation of the original 2021 Infinity Blend. Accordingly, it’s made from barrels of Old Elk Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Old Elk Straight Wheat Whiskey and two vintage Kentucky straight bourbon whiskeys.
“We are fortunate to have Greg Metze, with his 44 years of experience, leading and inspiring our team,” says Old Elk CEO Luis Gonzalez. “Infinity blends are meaningful to many whiskey enthusiasts, and with that in mind, Greg has created Old Elk Infinity Blend, which allows him the chance to tell his incredible 40 plus-year story in whiskey.”
Metze made this whiskey like fans who blend fractions of their favorite bottles in an unmarked decanter over time, the company says — just on a much larger scale. The composition of the 2022 Infinity Blend includes:
- 18% Old Elk 2021 Infinity Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskies
- 15% Old Elk Straight Bourbon Whiskey, aged 7 years
- 9% Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, aged 13 years
- 6% Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, aged 12 years
- 52% Old Elk Wheat Whiskey, aged 7 years
“I am very proud of this limited release of the Infinity Blend. Within this bottle are some of my favorite whiskies, culminating in this custom blend I am honored to share with whiskey lovers across the country,” says Metze. “This blend is truly crafted according to what I really enjoy in a flavor profile. It melds the rich, smooth attributes of Old Elk Bourbon with exceptional maturity notes and the classic profiles of Kentucky bourbon, transcending innovation, time and tradition.”
Distribution for Old Elk’s 2022 Infinity Blend comes from Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. This new release hits shelves nationwide starting Nov. 18.
Old Elk 2022 Infinity Blend Series is 114.1 proof, and retails for a suggested price of $149.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
This follows the releases of Old Elk Four Grain and Double Wheat whiskeys.
