Basil Hayden Experiments With Red Wine Cask Finish in Latest Limited-Edition Bourbon Release
On Tuesday, Beam Suntory-owned whiskey brand Basil Hayden announced its latest limited-edition release, Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish.
To make this bourbon, eighth-generation master distiller Freddie Noe blended the signature Basil Hayden bourbon with bourbon partially aged in Californian red wine casks.
“We are creating new avenues for consumers to enjoy our light and inviting expressions through unique cask finishes and innovative releases,” Jonathan Marks, senior marketing director for global small batch bourbon at Beam Suntory, said in a news release. “Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish continues the Basil Hayden mission to opening up the category to new drinkers and occasions.”
Bottled at 80 proof, Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish will enter retail locations for a suggested price of $59.99 per 750-milliliter bottle. The limited-time release will be available at fine wine and spirit retailers nationwide.
Basil Hayden recommends using this whiskey in aperitif-style cocktails.
