Limestone Branch launches 2017 Bourbon

Limestone Branch Distillery has introduced its 2017 version of Yellowstone Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon, finished in charred wine casks.

This year’s limited edition combines seven and 12-year Kentucky Straight Bourbons, with a special addition of Limestone Branch Distillery’s first available, 4-year Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The Bourbon is then rested in once-filled, double seasoned barrels, which are toasted and then lightly charred.

Steve Beam, president and distillery of Limestone Branch Distillery says: “We are beyond proud to be using some of our own distillate in this year’s Yellowstone Limited Edition. This is a momentous release for our family and it is meticulously handmade, grain to glass, right here at our distillery.”

The 2017 version is bottled at 101 proof and available in 750ml bottles signed by Steve Beam and in commemorative tubes. Approximately 7,000-8,000 bottles of this Bourbon are being produced this autumn at Limestone Branch Distillery, and the suggested retail price is US$99.99.

Beam says: “By finishing the bourbon in charred wine casks, we allowed the juice to intensify and evolve, creating a wonderful result. While last year’s edition was more about subtle nuances, this year’s edition we focused on intense flavors and a richer final product.”
