New Booze: Orphan Barrel's Rhetoric Whiskey

Rhetoric Whiskey introduced as third addition to the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company

Image001The newest addition to the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company is a bourbon that will be progressively aged and released over the coming years – the 20-year-old variant will be released this year, the 21-year-old will be released in 2015, and so on.

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company was created in early 2014 to locate forgotten barrels of craft whiskey from around the world and share them with consumers.  Rhetoric, the third variant to be released from the company is aged 20 years for its first release and is expected to begin appearing on select shelves throughout the U.S. in June under allocation due to limited supply. 

Rhetoric stocks were discovered in warehouses at the Stitzel-Weller facility in Louisville, KY, and distilled in both the New and Old Bernheim distilleries in Louisville. The whiskey is aged and bottled in Tullahoma, TN. Rhetoric carries a suggested retail price of $85.

To-date, the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company has released three variants – Barterhouse, Old Blowhard and Rhetoric.  As new and interesting whiskies are discovered, they will be added to the family to provide adult consumers a great selection of rare craft whiskies.

I am having a devil of a time finding Rhetoric Bourbon and I only live 40 miles from Tullahoma TN. Any suggestions on how to get it?
