Our first private barrel pick from Starlight Distillery, and it is amazing! Pre-order a bottle and get an invite to our release party on Thursday, May 26th from 6:00-7:30pm at all of our stores - where you can taste even more outstanding limited releases from Starlight.

A specially selected blend of 4-to-6-year-old grain-to-glass Bourbon (51% heirloom corn, 20% Huber Rye, 20% Malted Barley, 9% Wheat) from one of our favorite craft distillers that’s been finished for almost a year in a Sauternes Cask, and then bottled at cask strength (approx. 110 proof). Bourbon and Sauternes - What could be a more Waterford way to start our private barrel program?

For our first private barrel, we knew we wanted something special. Starlight’s private barrel program is renowned by collectors and connoisseurs across the country, so they were our first call. 

When we found out that a rare Sauternes cask was available we could barely contain our excitement. We like to think we played it cool at first, but when we tasted the barrel sample there was no playing it cool – we were absolutely blown away. It had a smoothness and complexity that was beyond anything we’ve tasted in recent memory - baking spice, honey, vanilla, and burnt sugar are just the beginning of the tasting journey here. You’re not going to want to miss this bottle, and once it’s gone - it’s gone.
