Basil Hayden’s Bourbon, one of the fastest growing super-premium bourbons on the market, is thrilled to announce the release of a special, extra-aged seasonal offering, Basil Hayden’s® 10 Year Old Bourbon. Debuting on shelves in December 2018, Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Bourbon will return in limited quantities for bourbon fans each holiday season.
Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Bourbon features the brand’s trademark high-rye bourbon recipe, aged longer in American Oak barrels to offer an additional layer of complexity to an already distinctive whiskey. The extra aging delivers heightened oak aromas along with hints of char and vanilla while maintaining Basil Hayden’s trademark spice in every sip. This intensification of flavor makes Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Bourbon a memorable bourbon for fans and newcomers alike while remaining approachable at 80 proof.
“Basil Hayden’s has always been a crowd-pleasing choice, especially during a time when people are getting together to share drinks or a celebratory meal,” said Rob Mason, Vice President of Whiskey at Beam Suntory. “With the release of Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Bourbon, we wanted to give our fans an expression that could be that ‘special something’ to enjoy when spending time with family and friends over the holidays or when picking out a great gift.”
Basil Hayden’s 10 Year Old Bourbon is the latest in a series of new expressions released by Basil Hayden’s to delight its fans. The launch of this bourbon, Basil Hayden’s oldest release to date, comes following several limited releases, including Basil Hayden’s® Rye Whiskey in 2017 and Basil Hayden’s Two by Two Rye™ in 2018.
