About Bhakta 2013: A limited release of cask strength 2013 Bourbon Whiskey, BHAKTA 2013 Bourbon has seen nearly 10 Years of barrel age before receiving its signature cask finish in a freshly emptied Armagnac Cask, in which our exquisite BHAKTA 50 Armagnac blends previously aged. Single vintage; unparalleled complexity.
This landmark single-year whiskey curated from the global cellars of Raj Peter Bhakta designates the beginning of BHAKTA Spirits’ ’Drink Vintage’ campaign; his first-ever bourbon, this singular vintage release symbolizes his return to his infamous métier — whiskey — which vaulted him to prominence as an iconic progenitor of the American craft spirits movement.
If you’ve ever heard a sommelier hold court on the quality and complexity of their favorite bottles, you already know this timeless truth: vintages are everything. Each year is different. The true story of a bottle is always told through its vintage—revealing terroir, taste, origin, craft, integrity, and even financial upside. In wine, the pros buy first and foremost on vintage.
