Last Drop Distillers Releases Rare Kentucky Whiskey Blend


September 26, 2022

Last Drop Distillers No 28

The Last Drop Distillers of London announced the release of its second Signature Blend — Release No 28: The Last Drop Signature Blend of Kentucky Straight Whiskeys.

Created by Sazerac Master Blender Drew Mayville, a founding member of The Last Drop Assembly’s panel of spirits industry experts, this bespoke spirit comprises a blend of vintage straight bourbon and rye whiskeys.

Since becoming Sazerac’s Master Blender in 2004, Drew has cultivated a dream of creating an ultra-rare whiskey for the most discerning of connoisseurs. To achieve this, he began preserving extremely small quantities of his favorite whiskeys at Buffalo Trace Distillery to fulfill this vision.

To bring his vision for The Last Drop to life, Mayville blended vintage whiskeys that he had been saving since he joined the Buffalo Trace Distillery team. He tasted more than 40 different vintage bourbon and rye whiskeys, creating multiple combinations of these spirits before arriving at the final masterpiece that bears his signature.

Bottled at 121.4 proof, the blend was left uncut and unfiltered to maximize its flavor and complexity.

Drew’s Blend follows The Last Drop Distillers first Signature Blend: a 50 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky created by Master Blender Colin J.P. Scott. Released in July 2021, this was the brand’s first foray into the creation, as well as curation, of spirits by the members of The Last Drop Assembly.

Each bottle of The Last Drop Signature Blend of Kentucky Straight Whiskeys is individually numbered and bears Mayfield’s physical signature. As with all recent Last Drop bottlings, it is artfully-contained in a bespoke bottle that suspends mid-air in an oak frame, held within in a signature green leather case alongside a 50ml miniature for private enjoyment, certificate of bottling and pocket-sized tasting book.

Just 1,458 bottles will be released worldwide and available in the U.S. as of October 2022 at a suggested retail price of $3,999 (750ml/121.4 proof).
