NINTH RELEASE IS THE FIRST 17-YEAR-OLD BOURBON IN THE SERIES
We’re proud to announce the spring 2022 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
For this edition, barrels were pulled from across three floors of rickhouse V at Heaven Hill Distillery’s main campus in Bardstown, Kentucky. The Bourbon was put into barrels in the fall of 2004 and bottled in the spring of 2022, making this the first 17-year-old bottle in the Old Fitzgerald series. Past editions have ranged in age from an 8-year-old release in the spring of 2021, up to a 16-year-old release in 2020.
Bottled in an ornate decanter, the spring 2022 edition features the green label that is consistent across all spring releases. And as was the case for the past editions, this edition’s tax strip, which has always been a signature of transparency on Bottled-in-Bond products, discloses when the liquid was produced and bottled. It also meets 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.
- Bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.
As the ninth national release in the series, the spring 2022 edition also continues our Bottled-in-Bond legacy. And as a leader of the Bottled-in-Bond category, we are proud to offer a premium, allocated product within this special class that showcases the authenticity and quality of the 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. In 1999, Heaven Hill bought the brand and began distilling it at Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky.
