Hidden Barn Kentucky Straight Bourbon Batch #001|
Limit 1 bottle per person
Last month, Former Old Forester Master Taster, Jackie Zykan, announced she was leaving her position. Shortly after, Hidden Barn Whiskey was announced! Hidden Barn is a partnership collaboration between Zykan Nate Winegar, Matt Dankner from Denver’s 5280 Whiskey Society and Royce Neeley of Neeley Family Distillery. The interest in this first release has been massive! We're incredibly excited to be working with Hidden Barn. While we only have a little over 100 bottles today, we hope that continues to grow in the future. Hidden Barn embraces craft distilling while highlighting the importance of blending. This is the perfect match for what Seelbach's strives to represent. Jackie has one of the best palates in the business and we're excited to see what's next for Hidden Barn!
