    What does Virgin Bourbon mean?

    A customer came in and asked this Q to us. Did not know. What does it denote and how did the term come about?

    I believe it is a brand of bourbon from Heaven Hill Distillery. It is a "cats and dog" brand; not one of their premium brands.

    Well atleast the bourbon is from HH , I don't know who bottles this.

    The one on the left (or, at least something that looks very similar) can be bought in Alabama ABC stores. I haven't had it for many years. I don't have a fond memory of it - about like J W Dant or something.

    Yes, Koji, you are right they are our products

    The 21 year silver wax (ps) silver label is really unique. It's a signature brand of Parker's...on the side of the label it has his signature, Parker B.

    Re: What does Virgin Bourbon mean?

    That one on the left did some seriously bad things to my head a few weeks ago Apparently I was singing and dancing and talking all kinds of stuff - most of which I have very little memory of
    The rest of those bottles don't make it to Australia (I'm not sure about New Zealand)
    Koji, I didn't see any of those bottles when I was in Tokyo last October. Are they readilly available in the Japanse market, or are they something you buy from the US?

    I will rephrase this to say it is not one of HH flagship brands that is promoted here in the US or on the HH website.
