FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 8, 2021
Newest Daviess County Bourbon variant finished in oak barrels with toasted heads
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Sept. 8, 2021) – Ducks Unlimited (DU) and Lux Row Distillers announce the launch of Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon.
As an official licensed partner of DU, Lux Row Distillers created a new Daviess County Bourbon variant that features a unique flavor profile, DU-branded packaging and a name that is certain to appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and bourbon drinkers alike.
“We are thrilled to have Lux Row Distillers as an official licensed partner of DU, and we’re excited to see this high-quality bourbon come to life,” said DU Managing Director of Corporate Relations Jim Alexander. “Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is certain to be highly sought after by DU members and supporters, and we’re proud of our partnership with the team at Lux Row Distillers.”
Finished in Missouri white-oak barrels with toasted heads, Daviess County Double Barrel was created by Lux Row Master Distiller and long-time DU member, John Rempe. Double Barrel features a mashbill that is similar to the other Daviess County Bourbon variants, along with the same proof level (96 proof). The double-barrel finish gives this limited-edition release a unique flavor profile.
“The double-barrel finishing process that goes into Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is a perfect nod to our Ducks Unlimited partnership, and it brings a unique flavor profile to our latest Daviess County offering,” said Rempe. “Expect a nose that includes crisp, toasted-oak notes, caramel and vanilla; sweet caramel, honey and toasted-marshmallow flavors on the palate, and a finish of caramelized sugar and lingering dark chocolate compliments of the toasted head finish.”
Available for purchase beginning mid-September, Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon has a limited supply offering at a suggested retail price of $49.99 per bottle. DU members can sample and bid on Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon at a series of DU events to be announced later this year.
Daviess County Double Barrel Bourbon is the newest member of the Daviess County Bourbon family, which also includes Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Daviess County Cabernet Sauvignon Finish and Daviess County French Oak Finish.
