The two Bottled in Bond releases for 2022 are comprised of the Four Grain Bourbon and San Luis Valley Rye
Denver-based whiskey creator, Laws Whiskey House has unveiled its 2022 Bottled in Bond releases: Four Grain Bourbon and San Luis Valley Rye. This year’s whiskeys mark release of batch six of its Bourbon and batch three of its Rye.
In order for a whiskey to qualify as ‘Bottled in Bond’, the expression must be made by one distillery in a single season, must be bottled at 100 proof and aged for at least four years in a federally bonded warehouse.
The Laws team released their first Bonded Four Grain Bourbon in 2016. This successful foray into Bonded whiskey also marked the first Bonded Bourbon in the state of Colorado and one of the first Bonded Four Grain Bourbons in the country.
Laws’ sixth release of their Bonded Four Grain Bourbon is one of the oldest Bourbons to be released from the distillery and is composed of two separate batches. One batch is from the spring season of 2013, marked with batch code #6-S, and the other is from the fall season of the same year, marked with batch code #6-F.
Batch #6-S of Laws’ Bonded Four Grain was distilled in the spring of 2013 and is a marriage of 18 barrels with an average maturation time of eight years and five months. Then batch #6-F of the Bonded Four Grain was distilled in the fall of 2013 and features nine barrels with an average maturation time of eight years and two months.
The San Luis Rye is a distinctive whiskey whose grain flavors continue to dominate the finish even after seven years in charred oak barrels.
Batch #3 of Laws’ Bonded San Luis Valley Straight Rye is a marriage of 23 barrels distilled in the fall season of 2014 with a total maturation time of seven years and one month
Al Laws, Founder, says: “We’re excited to be on this journey of Laws’ commitment to creating exceptional Bottled in Bond whiskey, and it will continue to be a lead mark in the Laws Whiskey portfolio in years to come. We hope you enjoy these two special whiskeys as much as we do and we are grateful to everyone who joins us on our journey.”
The latest offerings in the brand’s growing Bonded portfolio will be available in key markets across the country starting April 2022 for a suggested retail price of $79.99.
