LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Newswire.com) — Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. announced Wednesday the inaugural release of its first bourbon in 102 years on June 22, 2019 and sold all available bottles that day. Kentucky Peerless will have its second bourbon release on Aug. 3, 2019.
Kentucky Peerless will open at 9 a.m. for those interested in the limited quantities of Peerless bourbon. Complimentary tastings will be offered every half hour from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tours will be offered at 1:30 and 2:30, limited to 30 people per tour.
After beginning barreling in March of 2015, the Taylor family has been patiently crafting one barrel at a time making fine rye and bourbon. Corky Taylor, fourth generation and CEO, has been breathing life back in to his great-grandfather’s legacy that originally started in 1889.
Standing true to what the first generation once started, the Taylor family has taken no shortcuts in making a quality product. With the use of sweet mash instead of sour, non-chilled filtration, barreling product at 107 proof and bottling it as a barrel strength whiskey, Peerless has carefully crafted an independent path that is here to stay.
Peerless Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey can be tasted and purchased on Aug. 3 at Kentucky Peerless Distilling located on 120 North 10th Street in downtown Louisville. The distillery is open to the public on Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Thursdays and Fridays until 7 p.m.).
