Castle & Key Small Batch Bourbon 2022 Batch #1, is said to deliver notes of honey, golden raisin, brown butter, orange blossom, baked nutmeg, and stone fruit on the nose. Followed by notes of toffee, bread dough, dates, baking spice, and toasted almonds on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Will Arvin, Co-Founder and Owner of Castle & Key Distillery, said: “We’re thrilled to announce the release of Castle & Key's first bourbon,” says Will Arvin, We believe this debut stays true to our commitment of reimagining Kentucky spirits by identifying the best barrels for production each year based on quality, not consistency of flavour.”
