Press Release

Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company, a family-owned and operated craft distillery in Louisville, announces the release of Batch 1 of its Toasted Bourbon.

The release will take place with Batch 1 on March 16, 2024, at 10 a.m. at the Peerless Distillery located at 120 North 10th Street. Toasted Bourbon will then begin distribution in Kentucky and eventually, nationwide. The first100 bottles sold will include a specially numbered label. Bottle signings will be offered at the distillery from 10 a.m.–12 p.m. There is a two-bottle purchase limit per person.

Peerless Toasted Bourbon is aged in two separate oak barrels. It is initially aged in the distillery's standard, char level 3 barrel. This process develops the desired flavor profiles of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. The already barrel-aged whiskey is then placed in a toasted barrel to finish. The toasted barrel adds more complexity with honey, vanilla, toasted spices, and chocolate. The unique aging process allows for an elevated nose and palate.

“We hand-select each barrel for the finishing process. We chose to use a medium toast because it contains less tannins, which results in a more aromatic whiskey with warm, sweet, savory character and strong vanilla overtones, ”explains Peerless Head Taster John Wadell.

Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company is open to the public Monday through Saturday for tours and tastings in Louisville, Kentucky. For more information and to book reservations, visit
