This latest release from the multi-award-winning range, produced at Lux Row Distillers, features the distinctive packaging and natural cork closure for which Ezra Brooks is known, along with a prominent "99" proof callout on the label.
Commenting on the news, John Rempe, Master Distiller at Lux Row Distillers, said: "With Ezra Brooks 99 our goal was to create a higher-proof bourbon without sacrificing the rich notes Ezra Brooks is known for, and we achieved that with 99. The result is a smooth, drinkable bourbon with hints of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and spice. We're thrilled to introduce Ezra Brooks 99 to bourbon lovers everywhere."
Ezra Brooks 99, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in the US. RRP (tbc).
