This genuine piece of bourbon heritage first caught the eyes of the world when it was awarded the Grand Prize at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. Praised for its “Real delicacy of flavor, beauty in the sparkle and superiority in strength,” it was said that Bond and Lillard bourbon, “Bears no equal.”
We used this elegant description as our road map to reverse-engineer this lost liquid using era-inspired methods. Specially the extinct process of charcoal filtering. This highlights floral and fruitier top notes while imbuing it with a lighter, golden color. You’ll also notice a smooth, caramel sweetness and a delicate nature, which lingers pleasantly on the palate. And we’re confident if Bond and Lillard were here to try a glass of this amber glory, they’d tip their hats in honor. But it won’t be around long. Only 1,500 cases exist, and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
