Award-winning 15 STARS introduced the release of its latest expression, First West Bourbon, a blend of 15-, 9- and 7-year old bourbons.

Fans of the brand may be familiar with the previously released First West Rye, and, following a similar approach, this new expression showcases distilling tradition in America’s First West, marrying straight bourbon whiskeys from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee.

The limited-release, part of the First WestT series, will be available on the shelves of select retailers in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Missouri, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Massachusetts, Illinois, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and Nebraska as well as online through Seelbach’s and 15STARS.com.

First West Fine Aged Bourbon, bottled at 106 proof (53% ABV), has already found acclaim ahead of being released, winning Double Gold and being one of two finalists for Best Straight Bourbon at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition in 2022.

“We are proud to pay homage to our country’s heritage with our First West series as we continue this tradition of award-winning whiskey with our latest release of First West Bourbon,” Ricky Johnson, 15 STARS co-founder, said in a news release. “We strive to match the dedication of the great artisans of the past to ensure that fans will savor every sip of our fine aged bourbons.”

15 STARS continues to honor Kentucky’s long history and tradition of bourbon craftsmanship as the 15th state in the United States. In tribute to this, as with every limited release, 15 STARS First West Bourbon will feature the classic metal stopper inspired by the first U.S. coinage, which displayed 15 stars. Engraved by the American artisan Robert Scot, the design on the metal stopper represents the historic artisanship of early America that has stood the test of time.
