The first release in the Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Series, has met the strict requirements of a bottled-in-bond bottling, being the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged for a minimum of four years and bottled at 100 Proof.

This latest series of bourbons, which is said to reflect the traditions of both the Old Fitzgerald lineage and the bottled-in-bond designation, will see a new release added during each spring and autumn for the next five years.

Commenting on the launch, Denny Potter, Heaven Hill Master Distiller, said: “For 82 years Heaven Hill Distillery has nurtured and produced historic brands of quality and heritage. 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”.

The first release of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon, will be available in the US, once bottled in April, for a RRP of $110.00.
