Heaven Hill to launch limited-edition Old Fitzgerald series

Feb 20, 2018by Melita Kiely

Heaven Hill Distillery has revealed a limited-edition series of its Old Fitzgerald Bourbon brand, which will launch new expressions each spring and autumn for the next five years.

The first expression will be an 11-year-old whiskey, made with barrels laid down between February and May 2006, and bottled in April 2018. With an abv of 50%, the first Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the series will be available this spring at an RRP of US$110 per 750ml. The series will run for the next five years. Each bottle’s tax strip will provide information on when the liquid was produced and bottled, as the brand endeavours to be “transparent” about its products. Denny Potter, Heaven Hill Distillery master distiller, said: “It is an honour to join a famous line of distillers behind the Old Fitzgerald name and to continue to uphold the tradition of the brand through its bottled-in-bond designation, which dates to the early 1900s.”
