Turning 10, Few Releases its First Bottled in Bond Bourbon

As the pioneering craft distillery Few Spirits celebrates a decade in business, it releases Few Bottled In Bond Bourbon Whiskey.

This four-year-old whiskey meets the requirements of the Bottled In Bond Act of 1897.

The new product hits shelves in certain markets (NY, IL, CA, FL, CO) and through a direct-to-consumer channel in November, with plans to expand in 2022 and beyond.

Few Bottled In Bond Bourbon Whiskey also looks forward to 2022, which marks the 125th anniversary of the passage of the Bottled In Bond Act.

“FEW Bottled In Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a nod to the inspiration we pull from the past, but also an indication of what’s to come,” says Few Spirits founder Paul Hletko. “We’ve expanded our facilities and laid down thousands of barrels of ageing whiskey stock for decades to come. Moving into 2022, all Few Whiskey that comes to market will be aged at least four years and the distillery will continue to release bottled in bond products as well as new, innovative, and sometimes quirky releases that reflect the DNA of Few Spirits. We will continue to focus first and foremost on releasing the highest caliber whiskeys with world-class credentials that our consumers expect from us.”  

Few Bottled In Bond Bourbon Whiskey rolls out with 2,000 initial cases. Bottled at 100 proof, the mash bill is 70% Corn, 20% Rye, 10% Malted Barley.

The whiskey aged for a minimum of four years in Minnesota oak barrels.

The suggested retail price is $50 per 750-ml. bottle.

The bottled in bond designation requires:

  • The spirit must be the product of one distillation season by one distiller at one distillery.
  • It must have aged in a federally bonded warehouse under U.S. government supervision for at least four years, and bottled at 100 proof.
  • The bottled product’s label must identify the distillery where it was distilled and, if different, where it was bottled.
  • Only spirits produced in the U.S. may be designated as bonded.
