Kings County Distillery Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon 4 year old
Kings County is among the very first craft distillers to release a style of whiskey that can be considered the highest class of American Whiskey. Bottled-in-Bond is a designation that refers to American whiskeys that are distilled, aged, and bottled entirely at one distillery, from barrels filled in one season, by one distiller. Four-year-old bourbon distilled, aged and bottled entirely at the Kings County distillery in New York.
New York’s Kings Country Distillery have released their very own Bottled-in-Bond bourbon! Abiding by the strict Bottled-In-Bond rules set to help whiskey lovers know exactly what they’re getting (including coming from a single distillery, from a single season and aged for at least 4 years), this top-tipple makes for great sipping.
Furthermore, the whiskey must be four years old and bottled at precisely 100 proof. In the old days, this was a way to protect the consumer from brands that were merely bottling up whiskey from other distilleries and blending or adulterating that whiskey.
In an era when consumers still sometimes have a hard time knowing exactly where their whiskeys actually come from, bottled-in-bond best expresses the advantages we enjoy by making all our whiskey in-house from grain to bottle. Highly allocated but available everywhere.

Palate: Salted caramel, raisins, a kick of cardamom and some milk chocolate.
Finish: Remains rich in dark fruit notes.
