Heaven Hill’s Latest Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond Is 11 Years Old

Heaven Hill Distillery recently announced the release of the fall 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

This 11-year-old bourbon is composed of barrels produced in spring of 2010, and bottled in spring of 2021, the eighth national release for Old Fitz’ bottled-in-bond series.

Bottled in the recognizable Old Fitz ornate decanter, the fall edition sports a black label, which is consistent across all fall releases. This edition’s tax strip, considered a signature of transparency on bottled-in-bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled.

The fall 2021 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey features bourbon pulled from Rickhouse EE and is the second 11-year-old of the nationally released series, with the first released in the spring of 2018.

The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond fall edition will come in the 750ml size on an allocated basis and retails for $110 a bottle.
