Heaven Hill Distillery is proud to announce the release of the fall 2020 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. At 14-years-old, this release is comprised of barrels produced in fall of 2005, and bottled in fall of 2020. The sixth national release ushers in the latest hallmark series to the Bottled-in-Bond legacy.
Bottled in an ornate decanter, the fall edition denotes a black label, which is consistent for all fall releases of the Bourbon. The release’s tax strip, a signature of transparency on Bottled-in-Bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled. The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond fall edition will be available in the 750ml size on an allocated basis. It meets all the strict requirements of a Bottled-in-Bond: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.
While a previous red-label 14-year-old Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond edition was released as our visitors center and Kentucky-only allocated product, the fall 2020 edition is the first 14-year-old Bourbon to be part of the nationally released series. It features Bourbon pulled from across our different rickhouses, at different floors, and barreled on different production dates. As a leader of the Bottled-in-Bond category, Heaven Hill is proud to offer a premium, allocated product within this special class that showcases the authenticity and quality of our American Whiskey portfolio. Acquired in 1999 by Heaven Hill, the legendary Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for its distilling pedigree and intriguing story behind its namesake, John E. Fitzgerald.
