District Made Spirits, out of Washington, D.C., recently announced its annual Bottled-in-Bond whiskey release, this one a bourbon.
A statement from the whiskey maker noted that this spirit was distilled in April of 2015 from a 2014 harvest of rye and corn.
District Made Spirits filled seven barrels with high-rye bourbon before the team hand-selected the three best to make this 2023 release.
Bottles of the 100 proof Bottled-in-Bond are now available at the distillery and at retail shops in D.C. and Maryland, as well as available nationwide to ship. It has a suggested retail price of $80.
“We’re thrilled to release District Made Spirits’ fifth Bottled-in-Bond expression,” said Alex Laufer, co-founder and CEO. “This is our oldest release yet, and at more than seven years in age, we are thrilled by the balance of grain character from our high-rye mash bill and the influence of stellar barrels from Independent Stave Company.”
He said that for the first time, they blended three barrels for 2023’s Bottled-in-Bond release, allowing the whiskey maker to share this expression with a wider audience.
Laufer offered his tasting notes, saying that the District Made Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon starts with aromas of sweet citrus fruits and white peppercorns, surrounded by a cloud of cherry cola. On the palate, layers of spice build showcasing cinnamon red hots mingled with toasted almonds and anise.
District Made Spirits’ portfolio features five rye-forward spirits complete with the terroir of the Mid-Atlantic. Vodka, gin, barrel-rested gin, bourbon, and rye explores the Abruzzi rye grain’s signature “spice box” of flavors.
