MGP Ingredients has lined up the release of the latest limited edition Bourbon from its Limestone Branch Distillery’s Yellowstone brand.

The company said today that the 2021 Yellowstone Limited Edition is available from this week through selected retailers across the US. The expression comprises a blend of the brand’s 7-year-old and 15-year-old Bourbons, the former having spent time in ex-Amarone casks.

“Domestic straight Bourbon sales saw 21% growth versus last year, with ultra-premium Bourbons experiencing 38% growth,” said Limestone Branch Distillery’s brand manager, Caitlin Palmieri Jackson. “The Yellowstone brand has experienced nearly five times that level of growth. Our Limited Edition expression is … a way to raise awareness and continue the momentum for the brand family.”

The release is the sixth in the company’s limited edition series and follows a 2020 iteration aged in ex-Armagnac casks.

MGP Ingredients acquired Missouri-based beverage producer Luxco – who previously held a 50% stake in Limestone – in January for US$475m.
