Bluebird Distilling, the award-winning grain-to-glass Pennsylvania distillery,  announced seasonal releases Sportsman Bourbon (750ml, 100 proof, $69.99), a wheated bourbon whiskey dedicated to the spirit of adventure, and fan-favorite Winter Whiskey (750ml, 80 proof,  $44.99). These spirits will be available for purchase on-site at the distillery, in addition to the bottle shops at both Char & Stave locations in Ardmore and Chestnut Hill, and online for nationwide shipping.

The brand’s newest release is Sportsman Bourbon, the first of a new and ongoing series of well-aged bourbon whiskey inspired by the rugged, refined spirit of the outdoorsman. A premium tribute to those who love adventure, Sportsman Bourbon is a high-proof, distinctive bourbon featuring experimental blends and aged for 7.5 years to reach its full potential.

“Sportsman Bourbon is the start of an intriguing experimental series — I have been laying to rest different bourbon recipes for over eight years. This series gives us the room to experiment and truly create some of the best and most unique bourbons on the market,” Jared Adkins, Master Distiller and Founder of Bluebird Distilling, said in a news release. “While we’ll still be making our tried-and-true spirits like the Winter Whiskey, we’re excited to be adding more unique spirits to our catalogue that are inspired by the outdoors and adventure.”

Bluebird Distilling’s Winter Whiskey is set for release as well – it is a spirit made by taking Bluebird Distilling’s Four Grain Bourbon and adding a pinch of brown sugar, and then steeping it in a bevy of winter spices. This whiskey can be purchased nationally online, at the distillery (100 Bridge St, Phoenixville PA), and at both Char & Stave bottle shops in Ardmore (21 Rittenhouse Pl, Ardmore PA) and Chestnut Hill (8441 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia PA).

Bluebird Distilling’s Phoenixville distillery is open for bottle sales from 1 p.m.–11 p.m. daily, with cocktail service on Monday through Thursday 4–11 p.m., and Friday through Saturday 1 p.m.–midnight, and Sunday 1–11 p.m. The distillery is located at 100 Bridge Street in Phoenixville, PA, offering outdoor heated patio and limited indoor seating.
