Woodford Reserve Releases Annual Batch Proof


February 8, 2024

Woodford Reserve Batch Proof 121

Woodford Reserve has released its annual limited-edition, high-proof expression: Woodford Reserve Batch Proof.

At 121.2 proof, this expression showcases the flavor nuances created from batching 100+ different Woodford Reserve barrels together, then presenting that bourbon at the exact proof from the barrels. The barrels used to create Batch Proof are drawn from many different dates of production and matured in various warehouses and different floors within those warehouses.

The liquid showcases a range of sweet aromatics, fruit, spice, wood and grain characteristics at its purest form, not the standard 90.4 proof.

“Barrels drawn from the upper floors of our heat-cycled warehouses tend to possess higher proof presentations including this limited-edition batch,” Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall said in a news release. “Batch Proof allows consumers to taste Woodford Reserve exactly as it comes out of the barrels.”

This limited-edition collection is available in select U.S. and global markets and has a suggested retail price of $149.99. It’s available in limited quantities at Woodford Reserve Distillery starting at 9 a.m. on February 7.
