Celebrating 10 Years of Laws Whiskey House
Our most anticipated release of the decade is here. Please join us in celebrating our 10th anniversary with ORIGINS X.
The X release is especially important and exciting for me. It represents 10 years of distilling, maturing, and continually improving. It’s also our oldest whiskey released to date featuring barrels from the earliest days of Laws Whiskey House. Most notably, ORIGINS X represents what can happen when a group of people come together around a vision and an obsession. As the saying goes, “it takes a Village” and for our village “there are no shortcuts.”
The ORIGINS series celebrates our roots and founding story. We began distilling in 2011 and each of the first 16 spirit runs were directed by me with advice from my mentor and friend Bill Friel, Master Distiller Emeritus from Bardstown, Kentucky. In 2013, after two years of aging we selected 28 barrels that included at least one barrel from each of these first 16 spirit runs and married them in a stainless-steel tank. After this whiskey mingled and mellowed for a few days, it was reintroduced to the same 53-gallon #3 char barrels, renumbered, re-racked, and adorned with a single word, “ORIGINS.”
ORIGINS barrels were then sold to friends of the Village providing us with the funds that we used to design and manufacture our signature custom bottles and establish other brand pillars of Laws Whiskey House. As the company grew, we repurchased some of these barrels with the intent to create special releases and to showcase new heights of flavor and complexity from our Four Grain Bourbon over time. X is composed of the last of our 4 ORIGINS barrels, married together at roughly 107 proof.
Perhaps, appropriately, for our 10-year anniversary, this ORIGINS X release showcases our past, while at the same time also opening an exciting window to the future. A planted flag and a fork in the road. I hope you enjoy this bottle of liquid history while contemplating the exciting whiskey to come. Thank you for your continued support of and enthusiasm for our craft.
