Crafted for the most discerning spirits connoisseurs and collectors, Lock Stock & Barrel 18-year is double distilled from a rare mash bill of 100 percent rye grain. A “robust cut” is selected by master distillers, then the unfiltered spirit is aged in new charred American Oak barrels in cold weather for 18 years and bottled at 109 proof. The result is a deeply intense, yet harmonious straight rye, with rich and unified notes that suggest hot, buttered gingerbread, dried peach, toasted pecan, ripe honeydew and tobacco leaf.
Lock Stock & Barrel’s striking matte black glass bottle, embossed label and wood cork closure exude luxury and richness while paying homage to the bygone era of illicit saloons and bootleggers of frontier America. In addition to the rare spirit within, these features make it a memorable gifting item for special occasions and holidays. Lock Stock & Barrel 18 is meant to be savored neat, over a large ice cube or with a splash of spring water and is available in limited quantities across the nation.
