Blade and Bow has been a favorite of mine for a few years so this announcement has me pretty excited.

If you’re a fan of incredible Bourbon Whiskey then this Blade and Bow announcement for the coming Kentucky Derby is all for you!

This month, an extremely limited supply of Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 22-Year-Old will be re-released for the first time since its launch on Derby Day 2015.

Due to the rarity and renowned craftsmanship of the legendary Stitzel-Weller Distillery, demand for Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old exceeded even our wildest expectations.

The re-release of Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old honors the 82nd anniversary of the opening of Stitzel-Weller Distillery and continues to epitomize the artful passion of Stitzel-Weller. Since its release, Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old has been recognized by many respected spirits awards including:

–          Named “Best Straight Bourbon” and awarded Double Gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

–          Awarded a score of 99 and Chairman’s Trophy  at the 2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

–          Best Bourbon 10 years and over from multiple barrels from Jim Murray’s 2017 Whisky Bible

Blade and Bow has a lot to celebrate this year, and is doing so leading into Derby weekend with A Stitzel-Weller Affair on May 5.

The event includes a seated dinner by Chef Ford Fry of The Optimist and a private performance by Grammy-award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers.
