This is Daviess County straight bourbon that has been finished for six months in cabernet sauvignon casks.

"Daviess County Distilling Company, with heritage dating back to 1874, was once a prominent distillery in Daviess County, which boasts a long history of distilled spirits and iconic distilleries that helped Kentucky earn its reputation as the home of great bourbons. It was acquired by the Medley Distilling Company in 1901, survived Prohibition, but ultimately the Daviess County brand was shuttered, apparently among others, by what would later be known as Diageo in 1992 when Medley itself was closed by its new owner.

The Daviess Country brand was acquired shortly thereafter by David Sherman Corporation in 1993, which in turn became Luxco when it was renamed in 2006. Now and again an old bottle of the Daviess Country whiskey pre-closure is rescued from a dusty retail shelf somewhere, but for the most part it was seemingly dormant for decades. That’s changed now, as Luxco, through its Lux Row Distillers operation, has restored it as a new “ultra-premium” family of bourbons.

The new Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon line up, according to those behind it, consists of a mixed mash bill of both wheated and ryed bourbons for a balanced sweetness and spice. The three variants in this line are Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon – Cabernet Sauvignon Finish and Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon – French Oak Finish." - The Whiskey Wash

The main reason to create a “Club,” is simple: when we get in cool whiskeys it seems they are bought up extremely quickly, often before our core group of customers can buy any. We want to create a more easy-going, less time-sensitive shopping opportunity for our customers.

I also want to showcase authentic "craft" whiskey from people that are actually distilling it. Sourced Whiskeys of course may be a part of the club in the future, if they are good!

This is the way it works. . . You will sign up to be a part of the Club with a purchase of this month’s selection (it will be shipped immediately).  You only have to do this once! On the 20th of the next month, and any subsequent months, you will receive that “Whiskey of the Month” automatically. We will have one Whiskey on offer each month, and I expect the price for these whiskeys to be in the $40-$100 price range.  We intend to announce the whiskey at least a week in advance, ideally two weeks in advance.  You will be able to skip a purchase if you want, or cancel at any time. The date of “execution” for the Club membership will be the 20th of each month.
