Blue Run Flight Series Drops as New Biannual Release


October 17, 2022

Blue Run Flight Series

Blue Run Spirits announced its fall release, the first in what is to become a biannual series of “micro batch” whiskeys, called the Blue Run Flight Series.

The new series is a six-whiskey micro batch collection of Blue Run’s lauded Kentucky Straight High Rye Bourbon Whiskey. The first two flights and a limited number of complete sets of all six bottles are now available at select retailers in the United States and will be available online at beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern Wednesday, Oct. 19. Two more Flights will be released each subsequent day at that same time.

Each of the six Flights comes from between two to five barrels contract distilled by Blue Run’s Liquid Advisor Jim Rutledge at Castle & Key Distillery. The barrels were hand-selected and blended by Whiskey Director Shaylyn Gammon, making the Flight Series the first Blue Run whiskey release blended by Gammon since joining the company earlier this year.

The small number of barrels used in Blue Run’s micro batching allows Gammon’s blending skill to shine through on each bourbon, creating exceptional flavor experiences in each Flight.

Blue Run plans to release two Flight Series annually beginning in 2023. An iridescent white version of Blue Run’s signature butterfly medallion, designed by Devon McKinney, stands out on the sleek bottle and is meant to evoke a cloud in the sky. The names of each micro batch Flight invite the consumer on a sensory journey to uniquely memorable destinations experienced by Blue Run’s team.
