Introducing Tommyrotter Napa Valley Heritance Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey
(October 2020) – Leading U.S. wine & spirits importer Palm Bay International and NY state craft distiller Tommyrotter are pleased to introduce Tommyrotter Napa Valley Heritance Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey - an over proof, four-grain bourbon consisting of corn, wheat, rye and malted barley, finished in premium Cabernet Sauvignon casks from Rutherford, Napa Valley, California.
Tommyrotter introduced its first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon cask aged bourbon in 2017 as a limited-edition release and the distillery’s first foray into whiskey production. Tommyrotter Napa Valley Heritance Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a new edition and part of the distillery’s line-up of regular releases. Comprised of three separate, straight bourbons from Indiana, including a high corn bourbon, a high wheat bourbon and a high rye bourbon. The final collection of straight bourbon is finished in Cabernet Sauvignon French oak barrels from Rutherford, Napa Valley, California for 3 months. Once matured, the whiskey is non-chill filtered, then bottled at the Tommyrotter Distillery at 95 proof/47.5% alc. The resulting whiskey offers luscious honey notes and aromas of dried fruit on the nose that lead to layers of vanilla, sherry, sweet cocoa and spice, culminating with a long finish of brandied cherry and soft herbal notes.
Robert Finan, Master Distiller and Co-Founder of Tommyrotter Distillery, commented, “We’re incredibly excited to debut this bourbon with our friends and partners at Palm Bay International. It's the result of five years of experimentation, trial and error and discovering our path in the craft spirits world. We can’t wait for you to try it.”
Tommyrotter Napa Valley Heritance Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey is currently available in NY, NJ, MA, and PA with an SRP of $49.99/750ml.
