Barrell Craft Spirits’ new BCS Gold Label Seagrass whiskey will be the pinnacle of the brand’s BCS Seagrass Series.
BCS Gold Label Seagrass features rare 20-year rye whiskey, sourced and finished in Martinique rum, Malmsey Madeira, and apricot brandy casks.
The expression was distilled in Canada, then crafted and bottled in Kentucky at cask strength, 128.12 proof (64.06% ABV).
“Gold Label Seagrass epitomizes our team’s expertise in global sourcing and blending, both in whiskey and finishing materials,” said BCS Founder Joe Beatrice, in a prepared statement. “This exceptional whiskey is remarkably flavorful, showcasing the best of the Seagrass profile in a whiskey that can only be made this complex and nuanced with time in the barrel.”
Founded in 2013 in Louisville, Kentucky, BCS selects and blends products that explore different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottles them at cask strength.
BCS’s stock of high-quality casks lends to craft blends that maximize the nuances of each ingredient. The distiller uses creative finishes, a liberated approach to blending, and a commitment to releasing each whiskey at cask strength without chill filtration.
The BCS line of products includes batches, ongoing releases and limited releases currently sold in 48 states throughout the U.S.
Starting in mid-June, BCS Gold Label Seagrass will be available at select retailers and online via the BCS website. The suggested retail price for a 750ml bottle is $499.99.
