LEXINGTON, KY— Kentucky Senator’s third Bourbon offering, the John G. Carlisle Release, is hitting shelves this summer. This highly-anticipated release is labeled after the esteemed U.S. Senator John G. Carlisle because he was a stabilizing force in the liquor industry and a leader of the Bourbon Democrats in Washington D.C. He was a major advocate for the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Aged seven years in oak barrels, this pleasantly sweet Bourbon is 107 proof with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley. The suggested retail price will be $119.99.
The limited edition release is available at liquor stores, bars and restaurants throughout Kentucky, with single barrel private selections at Liquor Barn, Party Mart and DEP retail outlets. The John G. Carlisle Release is also available online at www.BourbonOutfitter.com and will be featured at Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Washington, D.C. It has been distilled and aged in Kentucky, bottled at Bluegrass Distillers in Lexington and is being distributed by Kentucky Eagle Distributing.
“We’re proud to bring this third release of Kentucky Senator Bourbon to the marketplace,” said co-manager Andre Regard, “and in doing so honoring the father of the Bottled in Bond Act, Senator John G. Carlisle.”
“We are featuring the same mash bill as our second bottling, this time aged seven years,” said co-manager Damon Thayer. “As always, Kentucky Senator will be released at 107 proof. We continue our commitment to Kentucky’s fine Bourbon spirit and will continue to deliver superior taste and experience in each pour.”
The Kentucky Senator brand originated from Crigler and Crigler in northern Kentucky. The brand was later distilled and bottled by Double Springs Distillers, Inc. in Bardstown. Today, Kentucky Senator has been given a fresh look thanks to local managers Andre Regard and Damon Thayer. Both men possess a unique background in Bourbon that they bring to the management team of Kentucky Senator Spirits, LLC.

Kentucky Senator was featured last year in a Forbes article written by noted bourbon author, Fred Minnick. Minnick mentioned Kentucky Senator’s first release on his top 100 Whiskeys of 2021 and he named it the top-rated 15-year-old bourbon.
