Collabor&tion Mistelle Barrel Finish Cask Strength Bourbon

Collabor&tion is the culmination of nearly two years of work between the Bardstown Bourbon Co. and Copper & Kings American Brandy Co.

Two deluxe expressions of very fine 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskey finished for 18 months. Collabor&tion Mistelle Barrel Finish Cask Strength Bourbon is finished in Muscat Mistelle barrels and bottled at 94 proof.

"A Mistelle barrel is a unique vessel. Mistelle is unfermented grape juice (in this case Muscat) fortified with un-aged brandy (Muscat eau-de-vie) and then aged in bourbon barrels for 18 months. The empty barrels are deeply and highly caramelized with the grape sugars and fruit essences. The whiskey exiting these barrels is pure joy.” – Brandon O’Daniel, Head Distiller, Copper & Kings

The bourbon used to produce Collabor&tion was distilled in Indiana in 2006 by Lawrenceburg Distillers and is made from 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley.
