King's County Distillery Bourbon
50% abv. 20cl. Voted by the American Distilling Institute as 2016 distillery of the year, King's County Distillery is New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery, the first since Prohibition. King's County is among the very first craft distillers to release a style of whiskey that can be considered the highest class of American whiskey. Bottled-in-bond is a designation that refers to American whiskeys that are distilled, aged, and bottled entirely at one distillery, from barrels filled in one season, by one distiller. Furthermore, the whiskey must be four years old and bottled at precisely 100 proof. In the old days, this was a way to protect the consumer from brands that were merely bottling up whiskey from other distilleries and blending or adulterating that whiskey. In an era when consumers still sometimes have a hard time knowing exactly where their whiskeys actually come from, bottled-in-bond best expresses the advantages King's County enjoys by making all their whiskey in-house from grain to bottle. King's County Bottled-in-Bond was released to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897; it’s smooth, bold, spicy and complex with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper and vanilla.
