Twice a year, Heaven Hill Distillery releases a limited edition run of it's Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond series. This most recent edition features the oldest age statement of the series thus far (15 year), bottled at 100 proof, which is the legal requirement for any bourbon labeled "bottled-in-bond". The Old Fitzgerald line is linked to the legendary Julian P. "Pappy" Van Winkle, as Pappy purchased the brand during the 1920s. Pappy moved production of Old Fitzgerald to his own distillery where it became the first great wheated Bourbon. Some bourbon historians believe that the now highly-prized Pappy Van Winkle line of bourbons began as barrel selections of Old Fitzgerald. In 1999, Heaven Hill bought the Old Fitzgerald brand and began distilling it at the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville.
