Castle & Key’s Small Batch Bourbon 2022

Castle & Key is a Kentucky whiskey distillery that was brought back to life in 2018, with the renewal works started back in 2014. They are about to launch their first whiskey, which will be released in two different batches. Both batches are made up of a mash bill of 73% corn, 10% rye, and 17% malted barley. “We’re thrilled to announce the release of Castle & Key’s first bourbon,” said Will Arvin, Co-Founder, and Owner of Castle & Key Distillery, in a prepared statement. “We believe this debut stays true to our commitment of reimagining Kentucky spirits by identifying the best barrels for production each year based on quality, not the consistency of flavor.” “From grain to glass, our team is thorough and thoughtful while producing our spirits, and the bourbon is no different,” added Castle & Key’s Research and Development Manager, Jon Brown. “With a smooth and memorable profile, and in the making for over four years, our Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey batches are each blended to flavor with a sweet mash process of carefully selected grains.”

  • The Castle & Key’s Small Batch 1 is made from 80 barrels, aged 4 years, and bottled with an ABV of 49% (98 proof).
  • The Castle & Key’s Small Batch 2 is made from 80 barrels, aged 4 years, and bottled with an ABV of 49.5% (99 proof).

Batch 1 will be available starting on March 26th at Castle & Key Distillery (price of $50) and will be followed by the release of Batch #2, which will be available in early May.
