Lexington-based distillery RD1 Spirits has transitioned from WM Tarr to RD1 Whiskey. The limited release of WM Tarr, a blend of 8-year rye and 7-year bourbon is coming to an end and RD1 will turn the page to a new line of whiskeys and a new premium package design.

The first two releases include a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey at 98 proof ($49) and a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished with French Oak at 101 proof ($59). 

The new releases launched first in the tasting room and are now available on shelves in Kentucky and soon to be Indiana. They are also available online for purchase on their website: https://rd1spirits.com/collections/whiskey/ along with their remaining WM Tarr collection.

RD1 Spirits invites you to their tasting room for a multitude of activities. Visitors can book an in-depth tasting experience of two multi-award-winning whiskeys and their newest Kentucky Straight Bourbons with an option to upgrade to their ultra-rare 12-year Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

The tasting room also features unique finds and limited releases in the gift shop plus an event space available to rent, which can include catering. Hours of operation include: Mon-Sat: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun: 12-5 p.m.
