Blue Run Spirits Announces New Reflection I Bourbon


May 3, 2022

Blue Run Spirits Reflection I

Blue Run Spirits announced its second whiskey release of the year with Blue Run Reflection I Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, contract distilled by the company’s liquid advisor, Bourbon Hall of Fame member Jim Rutledge.

Blue Run Reflection I Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a small-batch whiskey which Rutledge distilled at Castle & Key Distillery in 2018.  Just 200 carefully selected barrels were chosen for this bottling, each toasted to a #3 or #4 char and aged in Frankfort and Bardstown, KY. “Reflection I” is bottled at 95 proof.

The name “Reflection I” was chosen by two of Blue Run’s founders who faced personal challenges over the past two years, in the middle of the pandemic and while launching Blue Run Spirits. Pulled from existing aging stocks, this refined Bourbon, at this particular proof, is what they both enjoyed during this period, allowing them to reflect on what truly matters, starting first and foremost with family.

The bottle features precious metal sliver ink and a sterling silver coating on the brand’s signature butterfly medallion.

The company’s previous release, High Rye Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Batch 2 was also contract distilled by Jim Rutledge at Castle & Key and blended by recently appointed Blue Run Spirits Whiskey Director Shaylyn Gammon.

Blue Run Reflection I is now available at select retailers in the U.S. and Canada, as well as online at beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Wednesday, May 4. SRP is $89.99.
