‘Tis the season and we’re celebrating the best way we know how, which of course includes bourbon. We’re not talking any old bourbon. We’re talking the most coveted, rare and hard-to-find antique collection bourbons on the market (some even call them unicorns!).
Over the next 9 days leading up to Christmas Eve, we’ll be releasing a bourbon-a-day, which will be available in one and two-ounce pours. It goes without saying that quantities are limited so get to Bourbon House ASAP to try one of these beauties before they’re gone.
Check back daily to see which bourbon will be featured next. (Or try to decipher it based on the description.)
Or better yet, join the New Orleans Bourbon Society and get advance notice on this rollout as well as upcoming events, and of course a complimentary pour of each month’s featured bourbon.
Wishing you the merriest of holidays!

George T. Stagg
124.9 proof, uncut and unfiltered. The whiskey tastes of dark chocolate, espresso, and tobacco. Last year’s release won the double gold medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and this year it’s just as good!

Van Winkle Special Reserve
90.4 proof. Some have described this sweet, full-bodied whiskey as “nectar,” leading to the assumption that the medium proof and the 12 years of aging create an enjoyable sipping bourbon.

Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 Year
