Origins 9 Single Barrel release

Aged 9 years, this will be Laws oldest release To Date!

The release of Origins 9 will be the oldest whiskey ever released by Laws Whiskey House come December 2020. This single barrel is derived from a special batch put together in the earliest days of Laws Whiskey House. 

Back in 2013, we hand selected 28 barrels of our existing Four Grain Bourbon that had reached two years of age and married them in a stainless-steel tank. The batch contained at least one barrel from each of the first 16 spirits runs we ever conducted. Each of these early runs was directed by Laws founder and CEO, Al Laws with some advice from his mentor and friend Bill Friel, Master Distiller Emeritus from Bardstown, Kentucky. 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”. 

Many friends and family purchased interest in most of these Origins barrels 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. One by one, and from time to time, we intend to bottle the few remaining Origins barrels in collectible hand numbered and signed packaging as they reach new heights in flavor and complexity. 

This Origins 9 release showcases the solid foundations of the first nine and a half years of Laws Whiskey House and our signature Four Grain Straight Bourbon. I hope you enjoy this bottle of liquid history. Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for our craft.
