LOUISVILLE, KY - Pursuit Spirits, founded by the creators of the popular podcast Bourbon Pursuit, is making their highly acclaimed bourbon available once again for 2021. Pursuit United received Double Platinum and placed runner-up in Best Blend of Straight Bourbons at the Ascot Awards. This new release will have 9342 available bottles and distribution expands to two new states. The small-batch bourbon will be available in limited quantities in July 2021 at a SRP of $65. This will be the last release for 2021.
Pursuit United is a blend of mashbills from 3 different distilleries in 3 different states. The small batch blend of straight bourbon whiskeys is bottled at 108 proof (54% Alc./Vol.) and non-chill filtered to maintain more barrel character. Tailored to the growing number of whiskey drinkers that want transparency, the blend consists of barrels from Bardstown Bourbon Company, Finger Lakes Distilling, and an undisclosed distillery in Tennessee that is not located in Tullahoma.
After the success of the first release of Pursuit United in January 2021, the blend continues to maintain the same components for consistent and unparalleled flavor for future releases. This batch is comprised of 40 barrels, making it four times larger than the first release. “We took the lessons we learned from the first release and figured out how to do it at scale,” said Ryan Cecil, Co-founder of Pursuit Spirits. “Each of our partner distilleries bring a unique component that makes the blend stand out.”
Pursuit United will be extending its retail presence to customers in Colorado and Illinois. “Bourbon Pursuit podcast data shows there is a concentration of listeners in Denver and Chicago and we wanted to make it available to them,” said Kenny Coleman, Co-founder of Pursuit Spirits. "We are now filling 1100 barrels per year and will slowly open up new territories as more barrels come of age.”
This final 2021 release of Pursuit United is limited to 9342 bottles that will be available online at Seelbachs.com and at select retail locations in Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas.
