17 Year Bourbon Unveiled As Old Fitzgerald Spring 2022 Decanter Release
The Spring 2022 release of Heaven Hill’s Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has been announced, taking the form of a 17 year old bourbon.
This new offering, according to the Kentucky distillery, is comprised of barrels produced in fall of 2004. It was pulled from across three floors of rick house V at Heaven Hill Distillery’s main campus and bottled in spring of 2022. Noted as the ninth national release in this series, it also marks the first 17 year old in this line up.
As is typical with other modern Old Fitzgerald releases, this one comes bottled in an ornate decanter that denotes a green label that is consistent across previous spring expressions. In addition, this edition’s tax strip, which has always been a signature of transparency on bottled-in-bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled.
The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond spring edition will be available in the 750ml size on an allocated basis. It 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, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume. The edition is available at a suggested retail price of $185.
Acquired in 1999 by Heaven Hill, the Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for what’s described as its distilling pedigree and intriguing story behind its namesake, John E. Fitzgerald.
