About Orphan Barrel Fable & Folly 14 Year Old Whiskey
Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company is a dedicated cause, acquiring some of the rarest casks from some of the finest whiskey cellars, and releasing them into the world as a cascade of limited edition, barrel-aged ambrosia. In 2013 bourbon and Tennessee whiskey were labeled the fastest growing product category by volume in the U.S. alcohol business.
The Orphan bottling project was more or less an ingenious response to this boom in the whiskey industry, and an effort to accommodate the vast quantities of leftover product from their monopoly of acquisitions. When Diageo didn't have a place for the acquired product in their blends, they set the spirits aside. Time transformed this new spirit into aged delicacies. In 2013, Orphan Barrel Whiskey was created by Diageo, commercializing a large stock of ultra-aged American whiskeys that it had been maturing at the Stitzel-Weller distillery in Shively Kentucky.
Orphan Barrel Fable & Folly had their master blender Andrew Mackay put together the last remaining Orphan Barrel stocks of Barterhouse, Forged Oak, and several Rhetoric releases. These were married with aged rye and corn whiskeys, resulting in a beautifully mature 14-year-old whiskey. Bottled at 90 proof, it's a rich, creamy, and spicy expression with sweet and fruity notes.
