- Larceny was hand selected by the Master Distillers to have a taste profile of a six-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Made with wheat as the secondary grain, instead of the traditional rye, Larceny is a smoother tasting Small Batch Bourbon.
A bright new copper colored whiskey with aromas of fresh bread and toffee, with a note of butterscotch. On the palate, buttery caramel and honeyed notes, with a rich mouthfeel ending in long, gently sweet and savory finish.
Larceny has its origins in the colorful history of John E. Fitzgerald and the Old Fitzgerald brand. John E. Fitzgerald was a treasury agent and one of the only people legally allowed to carry the keys to the barrel storage warehouses. Mr. Fitzgerald would use his warehouse keys to gain access to the best barrels. The Old Fitzgerald brand, first registered in the 1880s, was eventually sold to Julian P. "Pappy" Van Winkle during Prohibition. Pappy moved production of Old Fitz to his distillery where it became the first great wheated Bourbon and eventually one of the most famous Bourbon brands in the world. Now Larceny honors both the superb taste of the lawless treasury agent and the legacy of the Old Fitzgerald brand. (from Larceny)
