Patron Tequila Takes First Step Into the Prestige Category With Patron El Alto 

Patron Tequila is taking its first step into the prestige category with the release of its latest expression, Patron El Alto. El Alto is a handcrafted offering made from 100% Weber Blue Agave grown in the highest parts of Jalisco, Mexico. It is available in select U.S. markets only — New York, Miami, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles — at an SRP of $179.

Patron Master Distiller David Rodriguez noted: “The tequilas that harmoniously come together in Patron El Alto are a result of selecting the finest 100 percent Weber Blue Agave in the highest parts of Jalisco, Mexico, a territory known for producing the sweetest agaves, which gives Patron El Alto its incredibly smooth and sweet taste. We took four years to focus on only the best of the best and perfect the bold, sweet flavors of this expression the right way: naturally.”. (Source)

Bardstown Bourbon Announces The Origin Series

Bardstown Bourbon Company is releasing its first-ever estate-distilled collection of whiskies. The Origin Series is comprised of three 6-year-old whiskies: Origin Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Origin Bottled-in-Bond, and Origin Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey with each bottle priced at $44.99, $49.99, and $69.99 respectively. The new lineup will roll out across 24 U.S. states via numerous online retailers. The company is also making a select number of Origin Series single barrels available to on and off-premise retailers, which they can hand-select at the distillery. 

“The Origin Series is the first opportunity to taste an expression that is 100% our whiskey. We’ve put years of patience into this bottle, waiting six years until we felt it was truly ready to share with the world. The full technical capabilities of our distillery are on display with these three bespoke products,” noted Dan Callaway, VP of Product Development for Bardstown Bourbon Co. (Source)

Old Forester’s Latest 117 Series Release is ‘Extra Extra Old’

Bourbon heavyweight Old Forester has come out with its Extra Extra Old, an installment in its 117 Series. The double-barreled bourbon is sweet, and spicy, and contains aromas of roasted coffee, maple syrup, and caramel with tasting notes of mocha and dark cherry on the palate. The offering is left to age for 24 months in charred oak barrels. Limited quantities of the release are available for purchase at the distillery itself, online retailers, and select retailers in Kentucky. 

“This expression was born from a creative and innovative experiment while staying true to the classic taste which sets Old Forester apart. Although I only joined Old Forester last month, this was one of the first new limited expressions I was honored to taste and the extra long double barreling leads to an explosion of flavors,” said Master Taster Melissa Rift.
