The new offering from the Kentucky-based brandy distillery will be available across the state, beginning in October
Copper & Kings, Kentucky’s American brandy distillery and official member of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, will offer something never-before-tasted from the brand: bourbon.
From October, Copper & Kings Bourbon will be available state-wide in Kentucky, via local retailers, as well as at the Copper & King’s Distillery.
The brand has built a reputation for doing things differently; this latest expression is made from a blend of 5, 10 and 15-year-old bourbons, remixing Kentucky tradition and finishing the bourbon in American Apple Brandy barrels for 12 months.
The resulting liquid is a unique opportunity to explore the way that classic bourbon notes mingle and develop with traditional brandy notes to create a wholly distinct taste experience. Closely monitored to the ideal flavor profile, the final blend, created by head distiller Brandon O’Daniel, is presented at 111 proof (55.5 ABV) and offered for a suggested retail price of $65.
“Our bourbon is another feather in the cap for Copper & Kings. We are born and raised in the bluegrass state and although we will always be a brandy distillery we are also extremely fascinated with what our barrels can do in regards to finishing spirits,” said O’Daniel. “Bourbon is the next logical step in exploring how the two distinctly American Spirits meld together. Our brandies are made with elements of the bourbon world and now we are excited to round out our portfolio with a delicious bourbon showcasing elements from our brandy world.”
The distillery will celebrate the release of its bourbon with a party held on Thursday, October 19, 2023. Guests are encouraged to wear their Copper & Kings best and dress in orange and black. The event will feature Bourbon and American Brandy tastings, live music, flash tattoos, caricature portraits, mini distillery tours, a gourmet s’mores station and more. A menu of snacks prepared by Chef Josh Lehman will be offered for purchase. The free event begins at 6pm and all are welcome.
Visitors to Copper & Kings Distillery, at 1121 E. Washington Street in Louisville’s historic Butchertown neighborhood, will now find bourbon available in the gift shop and as a tasting feature on all tours. For more information, or to book a tour visit CopperandKings.com.
