Destillaré Orange Curaçao Finish Bourbon

Kentucky-based Bardstown Bourbon Company partnered with American distiller Copper & Kings to create a whiskey finished in Destillaré Orange Curaçao barrels.

The barrel-finished release comprises nine-year-old Tennessee Bourbon finished for 18 months in Destillaré Orange Curaçao barrels from Copper & Kings. The additional maturation was said to give the whiskey “a brilliant orange nose”, as well as flavours of baking spice, vanilla and maple.

The whiskey is the latest release in the distillery’s Collaborative Series, a line of Bourbons that have been finished in an array of wine, beer and spirits barrels.

Bardstown Bourbon Company’s Destillaré Orange Curaçao Finish Bourbon is bottled at 50% ABV and carries a recommended retail price of US$124.99 per 750ml bottle.
