For the 225th Anniversary of Bardstown's founding, Heaven Hill has been working with Mayor Dixie Hibbs to develop a Commemorative Bourbon. The earthenware jug will hold Bourbon specially selected by Master Distiller Parker Beam.

The jug will have a special label and be sold at the Bourbon Heritage Center beginning on July 4th. Each aspect of the bottle showcases the special 225 year anniversary, including the 225 months of aging, the $56.25 asking price (equivalent to 225 quarters) and the 225 limited edition bottles available.

The "Bourbon Capital of the World" was established in 1780 by William Bard. Bardstown was originally a part of Virginia when the boundaries of the town were set. The 225 anniversary makes it one of the oldest cities in the Commonwealth.


P.S. I just got a email from Josh Hafer (Corporate Communications Manger ) He said I can pre-order ---let me know if you want one and I will deliver it during your visit in Sept. at Festival time.
