Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond 19 Year Old Spring 2022 Release
Heaven Hill Distillery has announced the fall 2022 edition of their Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
At 19 years old, this iteration is the oldest to date in the popular, heavily sought-after line. The tenth release in the series, it’s comprised of barrels produced in September 2003, and bottled in October of 2022.
Packaged in the line’s familiar decanter, the fall edition has a black label, consistent across all fall releases.
As was the case for past editions, this edition’s tax strip — a tradition of transparency on all bottled-in-bond products — discloses when the liquid was produced and bottled.
The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond fall edition launches nationally on an allocated basis. It meets the 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.
Pulled from across three floors of rickhouse F and one floor of rickhouse X, Heaven Hill Distillery announces the fall 2022 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
In its signature black label, this tenth release of the series consists of barrels produced in September 2003 and bottled in October of 2022.
Bottled in bond is a label for an American-made distilled beverage that has been aged and bottled according to a set of legal regulations contained in the United States government’s Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits, as originally laid out in the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. Old Fitzgerald uses wheat in the mash bill to reduce the spiciness that a heavy rye version of bourbon can have.
Each spring and fall, a new edition to the Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond series is released. Inspired by an original 1950’s Old Fitzgerald diamond decanter, the packaging and series honor both the history of the Old Fitzgerald brand and the historic Bottled-in-Bond designation. The Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for its distilling pedigree, as the brand was first registered in 1884 and was eventually sold to “Pappy” Van Winkle during Prohibition.
