Earlier this year, Louisville, Kentucky-based Stellum Spirits launched its flagship Stellum Bourbon and Stellum Rye whiskeys to celebrate the modern-day whiskey drinker. Now, the brand proudly introduces Stellum Black: a limited-release premium expression of the inaugural offerings, designed to carry the same classic, cask strength flavor profiles into a more refined, elegant, and complex blend.
Produced by Barrell Craft Spirits, Stellum Spirits is the result of years of industry-leading innovation in American whiskey. The brand strives to improve the flavor, process and ideals of traditional American whiskeys, while underscoring the importance of nuance and polish in a paired down and minimalist setting.
Stellum Black reveals a natural evolution of the inaugural cask strength bourbon and rye whiskey blends, using a meticulous blending approach to layer older reserve barrels into the original blends. The result is something both entirely new and deeply familiar.
“For Stellum Black, we maintained the soul of Stellum while creating a new dimension of flavor by adding reserve barrels from our stocks,” said Joe Beatrice, Barrell Craft Spirits founder, in a press release. “We’ve refined this layering technique over time which produces whiskeys focused on both immediate flavor and a long-developed complexity. The result is an entirely new set of whiskeys that has its roots firmly planted in the inaugural whiskeys.”
Stellum Black Bourbon and Stellum Black Rye were distilled and aged in IN, KY and TN, and bottled at 109.22 proof (54.61% ABV) and 114.26 proof (57.13% ABV), respectively.
Stellum Black will be allocated nationwide and online via the Stellum website at www.stellum.com for the suggested retail price of $99 per 750ml bottle.
