Larceny Straight Bourbon Very Small Batch Whisky

Larceny Straight Bourbon Very Small Batch

Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a barrel-proof, small batch sipping wheat bourbon whiskey from the Heaven Hill family of spirits. This smooth tasting bourbon uses wheat as the secondary grain instead of the more commonly used rye. This bourbon is composed of around 100 barrels, aged between 6 and 10 years.

History of Larceny Bourbon Whiskey

After the Prohibition Act of the United States was abolished in 1933, a group of investors founded the Old Heaven Hill Springs Distillery in 1935, just outside of Bardstown, Kentucky. Several members of the Shapira family were a part of this group of investors and soon after, the family bought-out all the other investors.

The Heaven Hill distillery is spread across hundreds of acres of land and produces sixteen brands of Bourbon ad dozens of other spirits and liqueurs. The distillery is the largest independent and the only remaining family-owned distillery in Kentucky.

Old Fitzgerald was a brand of Bourbon that was first produced in the late 1800s by the Stitzel-Willer distillery and was then acquired by Pappy Van Winkle. The distillery shut down in 1992 and the brand was eventually sold to Heaven Hill distillery.

In 2012, the Heaven Hill distillery launched The Larceny Straight Bourbon, which is the same liquid as the Old Fitzgerald but with a different, smoother and rounder flavour profile. John E. Fitzgerald was a federal treasury agent and it is his stories that first inspired the Old Fitzgerald. Back in those days, federal agents were the only people legally allowed to carry keys to rick-houses, the place where barrels are stored. Fitzgerald had a taste for fine bourbon and would often use his keys to gain access to spirits from the best barrels. During the evening time, he would sneak in to enjoy the bourbons. Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon was named so to honour Fitzgerald and the whiskey he stole while he supposed to be protecting it! The key on the label is another way for the Heaven Hill distillery to honour John E. Fitzgerald and his habits.

Making Process of Larceny Straight Bourbon Very Small Batch Whiskey

The Larceny Straight Bourbon uses the popular Heaven Hill mash bill of corn, wheat, and malted barley, same as the Old Fitzgerald. After the grains are milled, they are cooked in water from the Kentucky River that is filtered through limestone to remove all the impurities. The grains are then fermented using Heaven Hill’s propriety strain of yeast.

After fermentation, the mash is distilled through tall column stills and the resulting spirit is aged in #3 char honey barrels for six to twelve years. After the spirit is matured, the casks are blended and brought to a suitable proof for bottling.

Alcohol Percentage in Larceny Straight Bourbon Very Small Batch Whiskey

The Larceny Straight Bourbon Very Small Batch contains 46% ABV (92 US Proof), which is slightly higher than the standard permissible limit for Bourbons.
