This unique combination of aged Bourbons will not be created ever again. For this reason, each year’s release is a special, fleeting product with built-in scarcity. The producer has no loyalty to any one distiller, so the constituent bourbons can come from anywhere, rare and wonderful, famous and forgotten. That’s the Blood Oath: He will never reveal his sources, protecting their anonymity and thereby retaining allegiance only to the flavors, not the distillers. The package design is based on this concept of sworn secrecy; it’s a solemn contract between the producer and the consumer, complete with his signature at the bottom and an embossed seal of authenticity. Shipped in custom-made, fire-branded wooden crates with a letterpress-printed certificate of authenticity – every detail was thoughtfully considered and reflects the same attention to detail that went into production of the liquid inside the bottle.
Each year, a different “Pact” is released, representing a new blend of aged bourbons, starting in 2015 with Pact No. 1.
