SELECTED WHISKEYS

OUR PHILOSOPHY

In 1974, when A. H. HIRSCH first imagined his now legendary bourbon, he set the gold standard for thoughtful American whiskey. Today, HIRSCH continues to pursue whiskey as an explorer might consider uncharted territory. We believe the world is full of possibility, there’s always room for discovery, and craft is best balanced with experimentation. With obsessively discerning selections, HIRSCH continues to blaze trails for the adventurous.
 

“The only real pleasure is the satisfaction of going where no man has been before and where few can follow.”

— Annie Smith Peck

THE CASK STRENGTH
BATCH NO.AHH0722

The Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is an exclusive HIRSCH release finished in 30-Year-Old Hine Cognac XO barrels, in Bardstown, Kentucky. It’s rich, complex, and a well-rounded whiskey. This expression was brought from a collaboration between HIRSCH Selected Whiskeys and Hine Cognac.

 

HINE COGNAC Internationally acclaimed for its blends, vintage and extra old cognacs, the 259-year-old cognac house takes pride in its unequalled collection of exceptional cognacs dating back to the 1800s. For us at HIRSCH, this is a unique collaboration with one of the most prestigious Cognac distilleries.

54 barrels of our 6-year-old bourbon were selected to finish in 30-year-old XO Hine Cognac casks for 18 months, adding subtle yet noticeable character of Cognac to our bourbon. This unique expression has a mash bill of 72% corn, 13% rye, 15% malted barley. On the nose, it offers notes of dusty cherry and charred citrus with a palate of over ripe stone fruit, fresh raisin, soft heat, and finishes dry yet flavors continue to develop.

THE SINGLE BARREL
BATCH NO. AHH0821

Our first-ever single barrel offering, HIRSCH, The Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Whiskey Release debuted in honor of Bourbon Heritage Month 2021. A limited batch of just 57 aged single barrels of Bourbon, this release is a testament to our ongoing journey to curate the best in American whiskey and set new standards of excellence in the category.

The finish is long and dry — with a sweet chocolate taste lingering afterward.

HIRSCH always approaches the future with an adventurer's mindset, crafting spirits that cater to trailblazers, explorers, and those who celebrate life's moments with quality whiskey.
