Below, are four Double Gold medal winners from SFWSC.

Fusion Series #6 Kentucky Straight Bourbon

  • The Fusion Series celebrates the blending of newer and older bourbons to create something unique. The younger spirits are 100% Bardstown’s own product mellowed with hand-selected, supremely aged bourbon that beautifully complements their specific recipes. As the distillery grows, their bourbon ages — a difference you can taste with each Fusion release. Fusion Series #6 utilizes two of their own Kentucky bourbons at 3 years of age, blended with 30% 7-year Kentucky bourbon for a taste of baked apples with toffee, walnut, and cinnamon. It is aromatic and balanced, with black pepper, brown sugar, and caramel notes.

Discovery Series #6 Straight Bourbon

  • The Discovery Series showcases the art of blending hand-selected, supremely aged bourbon. For each release, team members throughout the distillery taste, analyze, and vote on the best recipe. It is a celebration of their collaborative spirit, working together to create something unique and spectacular. Discovery Series #6 includes bourbons from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana, aged 7 to 17 years. Starting off with vanilla, cedar, and candied orange, the taste evolves into dark chocolate and black cherry for a complex and elegant whiskey with a lingering finish.

Ferrand Bourbon

  • This special bottle boasts a blend of 7- and 11-year-old Kentucky bourbon aged in Maison Ferrand cognac barrels for 8 months to evoke the best of cognac, artfully balanced with premium Kentucky bourbon. A floral bouquet is complemented by grilled peach, pecan, and chantilly cream that yields to a palate of baked apple and cinnamon spice.

Chateau de Laubade

  • Winner of 2021’s SFWSC Best Special Barrel-Finished Bourbon, this12-year-old Indiana bourbon is finished in Chateau de Laubade’s Armagnac barrels for 18 months. Chateau de Laubade provides a rich palate of apricot with honey, espresso, and cinnamon. A sublime, balanced finish showcases the nature of this transatlantic partnership.
