Henry McKenna 10 Year
The only extra-aged Bottled-in-Bond Single Barrel Bourbon in the world, indicating it meets exacting U.S. government standards for age and proof. Aged for ten years.
In 1837, a young man from Ireland known for his remarkable whiskey-making skills, came to America with his family’s whiskey recipe that had been passed down for generations. Young Mr. McKenna settled in Kentucky and discovered the uniquely American drink known as Bourbon. McKenna instantly took a liking to Kentucky whiskey and set out to create a better Bourbon using his family’s recipe. To ensure the highest quality, he insisted that his Bourbon age in oak barrels before bottling. From this process, highly unusual for the time, emerged a remarkably smooth Bourbon boasting a distinctive character.

Larceny Small Batch Bourbon
A blend of six to twelve year old bourbon, this whiskey pays homage to Pappy Van Winkle's original bourbon recipe.
The famous bourbon brand Old Fitzgerald was named for John E. Fitzgerald, who according to a family biography of Pappy Van Winkle may have been a rather more colorful character than we imagine!
Fitzgerald, it seems, was a bonded treasury agent, one of the only people to carry keys to the storage warehouses. Apparently he also had a taste for the very finest bourbons and didn't mind helping himself! It was this infamous character with the fine palate who was immortalised by the brand back in the 1880s.
Nose: Warm bread, toffee, and a dash of butterscotch.
Palate: Rich with caramel, orange blossom honey, and bread pudding.
Finish: Long, layered, and savory.
