Distillery 291 “E” Batch #4 and #5 American Single Malt Whiskeys
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. EMBARGOED UNTIL November 7, 2018 — Distillery 291 is releasing batch #4 and #5 of 291 “E” series at 5pm on November 7th. The 291 “E” series is an opportunity for our company to think outside the box and push our limits. The “E” stands for “experimental” and every batch is a new entry into the series. Every batch of “E” is released at barrel proof and unique from anything else we make.
“For the first time in our company history, we are releasing two Distillery 291 “E” Whiskeys simultaneously. Every batch is unique yet complementary to the 291 E line. This is an exciting opportunity to taste two 291 American single malt whiskeys side by side. Our fun-loving team took inspiration from Beyonce’s album drop, and decided to keep the releases secret until the date they were available in the sales market,” said Founding Distiller, Michael Myers.
