Lux Row Distillers, Ducks Unlimited Launch Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon

By Hannah Kanik / September 20, 2021

Ducks Unlimited and Lux Row Distillers recently teamed up to launch Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon.

As an official licensed partner of DU, Lux Row created a new Daviess County Bourbon variant that features a unique flavor profile and DU-branded packaging. The double barrel finish gives the limited edition release what’s described as a distinct flavor profile. 

“We are thrilled to have Lux Row Distillers as an official licensed partner of DU, and we’re excited to see this high-quality bourbon come to life,” DU Managing Director of Corporate Relations Jim Alexander said in a prepared statement. “Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is certain to be highly sought after by DU members and supporters, and we’re proud of our partnership with the team at Lux Row Distillers.”

The bourbon is finished in Missouri white-oak barrels with toasted heads and created by Lux Row Master Distiller and long-time DU member, John Rempe. Double Barrel features a mashbill similar to the other Daviess County Bourbon variants, and comes in at 96 proof. 

“The double-barrel finishing process that goes into Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is a perfect nod to our Ducks Unlimited partnership, and it brings a unique flavor profile to our latest Daviess County offering,” said Rempe. “Expect a nose that includes crisp, toasted-oak notes, caramel and vanilla; sweet caramel, honey and toasted-marshmallow flavors on the palate, and a finish of caramelized sugar and lingering dark chocolate compliments of the toasted head finish.”

The Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon will be available for purchase now, and has a limited supply offering at a suggested retail price of $49.99. DU members can sample and bid on Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon at a series of DU events to be announced later this year, the distillery said.

It is the latest member of the distillery’s family, which includes Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Daviess County Cabernet Sauvignon Finish and Daviess County French Oak Finish.
