Kings County Distillery announced the national release of its first Bottled-in-Bond bourbon.
Starting March 3, the 120th anniversary of the Bottled-in-Bond Act passing, allocations are set for New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington DC, Oregon, Kentucky and Tennessee.
The New York distillery’s mashbill was 80% New York corn and 20% English malt. This release was twice distilled in 26-gallon pot stills in the fall of 2012 and entered into charred, new-oak 15-gallon barrels at 116 proof, the company said. Kings County: “We selected 9 of those barrels for this release, and blended them into a batch that was bottled on December 21st. Total yield was 40 cases of 24 375ml bottles with a 40% angel’s share.”
