Russell's Reserve Introduces 15-Year-Old Limited Release Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Famer Eddie Russell Pushes the Boundaries of Aging with Exquisite New Release

Louisville, KY (June, 2024): Renowned Kentucky bourbon producer Russell’s Reserve, celebrated for its commitment to quality and time-honored rickhouse aging, announces the highly anticipated release of its 15-Year-Old 2024 Limited Release. This exceptional expression serves as a spiritual successor to the coveted Russell’s Reserve 13-Year-Old, venturing further into the realm of extended aging to deliver a truly unique and luxurious bourbon experience.

Russell’s Reserve prioritizes exceptional quality over a rigid release schedule. This philosophy empowers Master Distiller Eddie Russell and his team to hand-select only the most remarkable barrels, ensuring each release meets their uncompromising standards. This year, a remarkable 15-year-old small-batch bourbon emerged as the undisputed champion, showcasing the profound influence of extended aging on flavor complexity.

“The decision to deviate from our 13-year release wasn’t taken lightly,” says Eddie Russell. “However, the captivating complexity achieved through this additional aging was simply too compelling to resist. Witnessing what began as a personal project – a tribute to my family’s shared passion for bourbon making – evolve into a worldwide phenomenon for collectors has been truly rewarding. Our unwavering commitment is to bottling only the finest expressions, and only when they are at their peak. This year, that dedication manifests in the exceptional Russell’s Reserve 15-Year-Old.”

Russell's Reserve unveils a limited-edition 15-Year-Old 2024 release

Under Eddie Russell’s meticulous guidance, Russell’s Reserve 15-Year-Old embodies his decades of experience and unparalleled talent for crafting nuanced flavors through meticulous aging and barrel selection.
