Bardstown, Ky. (May 13, 2024) --- Bardstown Bourbon Company’s award-winning  Collaborative Series will continue to push the boundaries of possibility in 2024, partnering  with category innovators in whisky, wine and beer. Three bespoke Collaborative Series  whiskeys will be released this year, beginning with a union with Amrut Distillery, pioneer  of Indian single malts, marking a first-of-its-kind finish for American whiskey. 

The Amrut Collaborative Series brings together the tradition of single malt with the robust  palates of long-aged Indiana ryes and Kentucky bourbons. Two straight rye whiskeys aged  in Amrut Indian Single Malt barrels for 18 months. The resulting liquid was carefully  blended with premium aged Kentucky straight bourbons to create a distinct flavor profile  that bridges cultures and traditions to create something singular. 

This unique whiskey leads with baked cherry, campfire, and vanilla, enveloped by cinnamon and herbal tea. On the palate, waves of ginger and malt lead to a wonderfully  complex, lasting finish. Amrut Collaborative Series is presented at 110 proof (55 percent  ABV) and is offered in limited quantities at a suggested retail price of $159.99. 

“Amrut is creating some beautiful liquid right now. Their use of malted barley, distilled and  aged in a warm, humid climate is such an interesting bridge between Scottish whisky and  bourbon," said Dan Callaway, VP of Product Development, responsible for the final flavor profile of all Bardstown Bourbon Co. products. "It’s fascinating to see how our rye blend  absorbed characteristics of both the peated and unpeated Amrut barrels, resulting in a  unique depth of flavor and character. We then created a custom bourbon blend to join the  finished rye and bring red fruit and rich caramel. The result is an authentic collaboration  bursting with new flavors." 

This partnership with the Amrut Distillery, trailblazers of authentic Indian single malt  whisky, showcases imagination, creativity, and the power of global connection. The largest  and most well-known brand, no Indian single malt has been more influential than Amrut, which launched an entire category that today represents more than half of the top 10  brands globally. Following strict Scotch regulations, Amrut is a classic single malt, with  bourbon and caramelized biscuit on the nose, a bittersweet palate with oak, barley and  blood orange that is both buttery and delicate. The intricate finish leaves a trace of brown  sugar and cocoa. Amrut is currently available in 44 countries. 

"There is a natural synergy in collaborating with Bardstown Bourbon Co. as two industry innovators. Bardstown Bourbon Co. has put out some astounding flavors over the years  and the interplay between these two traditions will certainly create some really interesting  whiskey,” said Ashok Chokalingam, Head of Distilling and International Sales. 

The final blend of Bardstown Bourbon Co. Amrut Collaborative Series brings together five  whiskeys into a wholly original blend bursting with flavor:

This year’s Collaborative Series releases bring partnerships with some of the most notable  and forward-looking brands.  

“It’s going to be a banner year for Bardstown Bourbon Company's Collaborative Series,”  said Callaway. “Distinctive, premium expressions have been aging wonderfully in our  rickhouses and are now ready to be enjoyed. From India to Napa Valley, we are ready to  celebrate these tremendous explorations and share them with the world.” 

Later this summer, Bardstown Bourbon Co. will release a collaboration with Silver Oak, a  more than 50-year tradition of Cabernet Sauvignon aged exclusively in American Oak. Like  Bardstown Bourbon Co. Silver Oak vows that their best bottles are ahead, never settling  and always looking to improve and innovate. Silver Oak remains one of the most sought after brands in the global wine industry. 

This fall will bring a partnership with Blackberry Farm through their internationally acclaimed brewery. Rustic, rooted and refined, Blackberry Farm Brewery draws  inspiration from old-world tradition while reflecting the unique changing seasons and  culinary heritage of the South.
