Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Bottled by: Kentucky Owl 70cl/48.2%
Confiscated Bourbon is Kentucky Owl’s tribute to the 250,000 gallons of maturing Bourbon seized by the US government from the original Kentucky Owl distillery in 1916, effectively putting Kentucky Owl out of business. According to the tale, the warehouse in which the confiscated casks were stored was subsequently burned down in mysterious circumstances, with the Kentucky Owl casks said to have been either destroyed or stolen in the mayhem.
