Each spring and fall, a new edition to the Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond series is released. Inspired by an original 1950's Old Fitzgerald diamond decanter, the packaging and series honour both the history of the Old Fitzgerald brand and the historic Bottled-in-Bond designation. The Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for its distilling pedigree, as the brand was first registered in 1884 and was eventually sold to "Pappy" Van Winkle during Prohibition. In 1999, Heaven Hill bought the brand and began distilling it at Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, KY.
The autumn 2018 release of Old Fitzgerald’s Bottled-in-Bond bourbon is a nine-year-old whiskey that was distilled in October 2008 and bottled in August 2018. It has aromas of caramel, dried fruit and butter, followed by citrus, toffee and black pepper flavours and a soft, liquorice-tinged finish.
