HIRSCH Selected Whiskeys announced the release of its latest expression, The Bivouac Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Bivouac – pronounced “be-voo-ak” – is defined as a temporary camp; alluding to a way of travel only meant for those who want to truly immerse themselves in nature. Honoring the original HIRSCH trailblazer, A.H. Hirsch, who set out to create the gold standard of American Whiskey, The Bivouac uses a custom mash bill inspired by the legendary A.H. Hirsch 16-Year-old Reserve, a testament to his legacy and the HIRSCH brand’s pursuit of liquid excellence.
Each bottle features a grid on the back label with exact batch specifications to ensure transparency, American whiskey lead at Hotaling & Co, Luis Rivas Ball, said in a news release.
Distilled in Bardstown, Kentucky, The Bivouac combines two straight bourbons, curated to appeal to those seeking rounded flavors: 95% of the blend is distilled from a mash bill of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley, and the other 5% is distilled from a high malted barley mash aged for at least eight years.
