Laws Whiskey House has released its newest Special Finish Series release: Honey Cask Finished Bourbon, partnering with Bee Squared Apiaries. Bee Squared Apiaries is located in Colorado and was founded by Beth Conrey. Bee Squared is a small beekeeping operation with 125 hives in various locations in Weld, Larimer and Boulder counties.
The whiskey is available at the Laws Whiskey House tasting room in Denver starting September 16th. It will be available in limited quantities at lawswhiskeyhouse.com and certain markets nationwide starting in late September. The MSRP is $79.99 per 750 ml. bottle.
Creating this whiskey resulted from a collaboration between distillers, beekeepers and honeybees. It all started with the distillery’s Four Grain Straight Bourbon. After the bourbon is dumped, Bee Squared Apiaries fills the barrels with honey. This process coats the inside of the barrel. After the process is complete the honey-infused barrels are returned to Laws Whiskey House for the finishing stage. The end process is a honey-infused bourbon that adds sweetness, accentuating the notes of black tea, orange blossom and cinnamon. On the nose is a floral aroma, followed by the combination of sweet orange and buttered toast, all wrapped in honey explains Laws Whiskey House.
“Our Honey Cask Finished Bourbon is a tasting room fan favorite. We are thrilled to finally share this creation on a larger scale with this special small batch. The collaboration between our talented distillers, Bee Squared Apiaries, and the industrious honeybees is delicious but also a testament to our commitment to innovation and craftsmanship.” explains Al Laws, founder and president of Laws Whiskey House.
The releases only yield four barrels. These barrels aged for 2 years and 8 months and an average of 1 year and 6 months in used honey casks, making the total age of this release 4 years and 2 months.
Only 1,080 bottles of this release were harvested at 95 proof.
