You’ve heard about it, read about it, and maybe even been fortunate enough to taste some over the years,  but when was the last time you were able to lay your hands on a bottle of Very Olde St Nick Rare Bourbon and Whiskey?   A highly peculiar brand, always produced in small lots using odd bottles, OSN is known for bourbons and whiskey of exceptional quality.  It has been almost impossible to find any releases of Very Olde St Nick and Olde St Nick products the past few years, and today those highly coveted bottles sell for hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars, and are traded among those who know fine spirits.  Stocks disappear as fast as they are released, scooped up by global bourbon and whiskey fanatics.

Consumers repeatedly ask, What happened to those rare and fabulous, legendary bottles of Very Olde St Nick?  Somehow with the shortage of real good bourbon, a brand that was created a very long time ago as a holiday special representing the true flavors and spirit of older American bourbon and whiskey,  over a number of decades became a collectible cult brand sought out by bourbon aficionados all over the world!

Good news for bourbon drinkers:  Olde St Nick Distillery will officially be part of the new micro craft bourbon operation opening as the First Official Craft Distillery in Nelson County, Ky.  If you’re a wine buff, Nelson County is the Napa Valley of the bourbon world with the incredibly charming historic city of Bardstown as its county seat.  The distillery’s opening will also be the official first craft operation in the Bourbon Capital of the World, Bardstown.  Small, highly selective releases will still be part of the Olde St Nick brand’s culture, as will the production of specialty bourbons, ryes and other grain whiskey.   

Join us this coming year as we celebrate three decades of legendary whiskies and release in very small batches and lots, some of our Very Olde St Nick items.    We never have much of any one product; that’s what happens when you’re small and begging for itty bitty specialty lots of whiskey.  But what we release should keep you interested.  Looking forward to firing up our new pot still and bringing the Very Olde St Nick Rare Bourbon, Rye, and Whiskey products to you very soon.    

The Old St Nick legend has taken on a life of its own with the advent of the internet, many claiming inside information, or knowledge about who first developed the product and why, it’s original pedigree, the source of its bourbons, and the story behind the eclectic style.  The Very Olde St Nick myth is a reality with a wonderful story…in fact many stories.  As many as the infinite miniscule number of releases from this highly prized producer for more than 30 years!!
