Four Gate Kelvin 60th Anniversary Limited Release|
The response from our Pro members over the weekend was incredible, and nearly sold out all of our initial stock. We had to immediately put in another order so we could also make it available to all of you all! (Please allow a few extra days to process all the orders, but we're so glad you all are excited about this release.)Four Gate Whiskey Company is releasing a special whiskey to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the founding of Kelvin Cooperage.Kelvin Cooperage was founded in Glasgow, Scotland in 1963 and is now based in Louisville, KY. Kelvin is a full-service cooperage supplying new and used barrels to wine, spirits, and beer producers around the world. Since the founding of Four Gate Whiskey Company in 2018, Kelvin Cooperage has been instrumental in providing advice, guidance, and expertly crafted and sourced barrels of all kinds. Their collaboration is a huge part of the success of Four Gate.To commemorate the occasion, Four Gate Whiskey Company selected 8-Year old barrels of Kentucky straight Bourbon Whiskey and re-barreled them in new toasted and charred casks from Kelvin Cooperage. The resulting double-oaked bourbon is dark, full-bodied and rich in flavor. The bottle features the logos of both Four Gate Whiskey Company and Kelvin Cooperage. It is sure to be a favorite for sippers and collectors alike.“Kelvin Sixty is a show-stopper,” Said Chief Blending Officer, Bill Straub. “Compare it to any of our releases in the glass and you can see the difference in color.”Chief Barrel Officer, Bob D’Antoni, agreed. “It has so much flavor,” he said. “It’s a really amazing whiskey and a fitting celebration of our friends’ 60th birthday.”The underlying whiskey is an 8-Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a mash bill of 75% corn, 20% rye, and 5% malted barley. 2,340 bottles were produced at 125.6 proof.
