Limited to just 3,000 bottles, the John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve Bourbon was released by Heaven Hills in an unusual turn of events. After the brand acquired the Stitzel-Weller Distillery, it also acquired 12 barrels of whiskey bourbon that were then aged for 20-years; it is through this process that we have the John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve Bourbon, which is the absolute last of a generation.

Each bottle of John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve Bourbon comes housed in a handmade wooden box that features a die-cut keyhole that lines up perfectly with the bottle to make the opening ceremony as much of an experience as the actual tasting.

Priced at $300 each, the John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve Bourbon is packaged like a trophy for aficionados.
