Medianoche Bottle Releases
Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 9 at 10 a.m. because these bottles will be available exclusively on Eventbrite. Tickets must be exchanged for bottles in person between April 15-May 8.
Birthday Medianoche: For the 20th iteration of its Birthday Bourbon, Old Forester selected a very limited number of barrels which were filled in June 2010 and aged for ten years before packaging to commemorate their 150th anniversary. After resting for 20 months in these highly coveted casks, the resulting Birthday Medianoche blend expresses notes of honey-drizzled Baklava, chocolate sugar cookies, cinnamon mocha latte and yellow cake batter.
Medianoche Reserve: The 2022 release of Medianoche Reserve started as a blend of Imperial Stouts aged for 21-30 months in freshly emptied 19-year Elijah Craig bourbon, 15-year Sazerac Rye whiskey, 13-year William Heavenhill bourbon, and 10-year Old Forester Birthday Bourbon barrels. After aging, the blend was conditioned with toasted coconut, raw coconut, vanilla beans, roasted cacao nibs and husks, each selected to complement the natural flavors imparted by the barrels.
