Cream of Kentucky Bourbon Release at Liquor Barn
Liquor Barn will have a special Bourbon Release featuring a historic brand. On Saturday, January 5 Cream of Kentucky 11.5 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey will be available for purchase at all 17 locations of Liquor Barn.
The Cream of Kentucky brand was originally introduced in 1888 by I. Trager & Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio. Just prior to the end of Prohibition, the brand was acquired by the famed Schenley Company and subsequently re-introduced in 1934.
Through the 1930s and 1940s, Cream of Kentucky grew to become one of the leading bourbon brands, with renowned artist Norman Rockwell providing much of the award-winning artwork for the brand during its heyday.
Cream of Kentucky is now owned by Jim Rutledge. Rutledge has been contract distilling at Castle & Key while simultaneously launching the J.W. Rutledge Distillery, which includes reviving the heritage brand Cream of Kentucky.
Cream of Kentucky 11.5 Year will go on sale at Liquor Barn locations on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 9 am. Limit one bottle per person. Limited quantities available. First come, first served.
