Green River 6-Year Single Barrels|
Green River Distilling Co. is the perfect marriage of a historic backstory backed up by great whiskey. Green River was originally established in 1885 but closed down before Prohibition due to a fire. It wasn't until 2014 that the property was acquired and renovations began. In 2020, the company acquired the rights to the Green River Distilling Co. name, with the approval of McCulloch's great-grandson, Rob McCulloch, and paid homage to its heritage with distinctive bottle features. In the summer of 2022, Bardstown Bourbon Company, renowned for its collaborations and house releases, acquired Green River. Aaron Harris succeeded Call as Master Distiller, selecting barrels from Warehouse B for this bourbon release, known for its "honey barrels."
Today, we have our first two Green River single barrels. We selected these barrels with the Green River and Bardstown Bourbon Co. team at this years Kentucky Bourbon Fest. It was incredibly fun to have multiple Master Distillers and Blenders tasting the same barrels! And, also guaranteed we walked away with great barrels.
