Bardstown Bourbon Company’s Collaborative Series continues in 2024 with the launch of three whiskeys, the first of which is a collab with Amrut Distillery.

Amrut is a pioneer of Indian single malts. Made following traditional Scotch regulations, Amrut is available in 44 countries.

For this collaboration, two straight Indiana rye whiskeys aged in Amrut Indian Single Malt barrels for 18 months. The resulting liquid was then blended with aged Kentucky straight bourbons.

The result is aromas and flavors of baked cherry, campfire and vanilla, enveloped by cinnamon and herbal tea, the distilleries report. The palate also includes ginger and malt.

“Amrut is creating some beautiful liquid right now. Their use of malted barley, distilled and aged in a warm, humid climate is such an interesting bridge between Scottish whisky and bourbon,” says Dan Callaway, VP of product development, responsible for the final flavor profile of all Bardstown Bourbon Co. products. “It’s fascinating to see how our rye blend absorbed characteristics of both the peated and unpeated Amrut barrels, resulting in a unique depth of flavor and character. We then created a custom bourbon blend to join the finished rye and bring red fruit and rich caramel. The result is an authentic collaboration bursting with new flavors.”

Amrut Collaborative Series comes bottled at 110 proof. It rolls out in limited quantities at a suggested retail price of $159.99 per 750-ml. bottle.

“There is a natural synergy in collaborating with Bardstown Bourbon Co. as two industry innovators,” says Ashok Chokalingam, head of distilling and international sales, Amrut. “Bardstown Bourbon Co. has put out some astounding flavors over the years and the interplay between these two traditions will certainly create some really interesting whiskey.”

Later this summer, Bardstown Bourbon Co. will release a collaboration with Silver Oak, which has more than 50 years of tradition of cabernet sauvignon aged exclusively in American Oak. Then this fall will bring a partnership with Blackberry Farm through their brewery.
