Watershed Distillery announced the Sept. 18 release of a highly limited barrel strength bourbon, Barrel Strength Bourbon Batch 002.
Created from some of the last remaining barrels of Watershed Distillery’s original five grain mash bill of corn, wheat, rye, barley, and spelt—an ancient grain grown primarily in Ohio and nod to the distillery’s craft roots, according to a news release —Batch 002 was created from copper pot-distilled bourbon aged four years in virgin char #4 White Oak barrels and finished for 34-45 months in Watershed’s own Ohio apple brandy casks.
Bottled without chill filtration at 120.8 proof, the bourbon has an SRP $89.99. It will be released initially to seven markets: Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, New York and Michigan. Just 3,060 bottles of Strength Bourbon Batch 002 will release to the public at the Watershed Distillery in Columbus, Oho, on Saturday, Sept. 18, followed by distribution.Stay In Touch!
