Old Ripy Bourbon

As the bourbon renaissance continues, more and more forgotten brands are being dusted off and revived. The latest is Old Ripy Bourbon, a brand created by Irish immigrant James Ripy that was made in Lawrenceburg, KY up until 1950. The new iteration of Old Ripy is distilled at Wild Turkey, which just happens to be the same location of the former Old Ripy distillery. It's a combination of 8-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon with other whiskeys of varying ages, up to 12 years old. It's bottled at 104 proof in smaller than normal 375ml bottles, which is a nod to the pre-Prohibition period of bourbon making. Old Ripy is also one of two new releases in the Whiskey Barons collection, which was established to honor and recreate historically significant Bourbons lost after Prohibition.
