Willett!

As many of you know, a year ago we were approached by the folks from the Willett Distillery, who were in possession of a very curious find – six twenty-one year old (!) ‘mystery’ barrels of bourbon.

After some research, it’s thought that these are old Heaven Hill stock, presumably from a lower floor in a rickhouse that burned down in 1996.  These single-barrel, barrel-proof bourbons are among the finest we’ve (ever) tasted, so we of course bought two of the six barrels for ourselves.  A precious, rare find indeed…

Barrel one, ‘Longman’, is 109 proof; barrel two, ‘Eagle’, came in at 100.5 proof – both fairly low for barrel-proof whiskey and both absolutely, totally delicious.

We’ve decided to share the wealth of this discovery, and are currently offering a limited release of bottled twenty-one year old Willett bourbon, in this case the 100.5 ‘Eagle’ bottling.

The release is in an addition of thirty-five, which includes a bottle of the old Willett bourbon housed in a canvas bag affixed with a stitched ampersand patch, numbered en verso.

For those of you interested in purchasing a bottle, please direct inquires tosarah@longmanandeagle.com.
