Luxco's 2018 Rebel Yell Single Barrel release is limited to 2,000 cases

Luxco's Kentucky whiskey unit has released this year's allocation of its Bourbon, Rebel Yell Single Barrel, in the US.

Lux Row Distillers said yesterday that 2,000 cases have been made available for 2018, in "most states". The 50% abv whiskey, which is aged for ten years, carries an SRP of US$59.99 per 75cl bottle. 

Each bottle carries a barrel number and 'aged since' date.

"Every barrel is different and has its own ... flavour profile, creating a new experience for consumers with every bottle," said head distiller John Rempe.

In 2016, Luxco set up Lux Row Distillers to operate its Kentucky whiskey distillery. The group said yesterday that Lux Row is set to open its doors to visitors this spring, as a distillery experience along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. 

Luxco's Bourbon portfolio includes the Rebel Yell, Blood Oath and Ezra Brooks brands.
