Twice a year, in spring and autumn, a new edition of the Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond decanter series is released. Presented in an ornate bottle inspired by an original 1950’s diamond decanter, the series reflects the traditions of both and the historic Bottled-in-Bond designation.

What’s the difference between bourbon and whiskey?
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile. old fitzgerald bourbon for sale online at bourbon vendor
