Preservation Distillery and Farm recently introduced two limited distillery-only offerings of Very Olde St. Nick whiskeys. The extraordinary bottlings are a celebration of the art of whiskey-making at Preservation.
Very Olde St. Nick’s “Notorious O.S.N.” is an exceptional offering from Preservation’s historic collection of vintage casks. Released at 16 years and cask-strength 112.5 proof, the flavor explosion is typical of Very Old St. Nick releases, heavy on the nose with flavors across the spectrum.
Likewise, the Very Olde St. Nick “Straight Outta Bardstown” edition is a 9 year Kentucky Bourbon at a roaring 130+ proof. The single barrel is a standout for the remarkable depth of flavor not overmatched by the formidable proof.
Clearly branded as Olde St. Nick with their familiar logo, each new release is a unique expression. These unconventional bottlings are tributes to the company’s decades-long history of releasing flavor forward, intense with complexity Bourbon and Whiskey.
Created in 1986, and under the same ownership for more than 35 years, Olde St. Nick is not an old brand “resurrected,” or a crafted story to make the new sound old, but exciting small
releases from many years of methodically collecting vintage stocks, barrels that are now coming of age. Preservation has the luxury of owning its own Kentucky distillery producing in extremely small batches, and today, are in the position to produce and bottle slightly more of these gems with a focus on distribution in key North American markets.
Each Bourbon or whiskey from Preservation Distillery is produced in extremely small batches typically of 1-3 barrels, featuring an eclectic assortment of hand-designed labels with wax preserving the unique flavors. The limited edition Very Olde St. Nick Bourbons is consistent with its many expressions of Bourbon and Rye Whiskey featuring bold, complex flavors rarely encountered in the modern Bourbon world.
Preservation Distillery + Farm was founded in 2015 in the Bourbon Capital of the World with a commitment to crafting world-class whiskeys. The former historic 40-acre tobacco farm is home to a family-owned, pot-distilling craft producer with decades of experience in the Bourbon industry. The distillery’s collection of products includes Very Olde St. Nick, Rare Perfection, Wattie Boone & Sons and many more.
