Woodford Reserve, the world’s leading super-premium bourbon, has announced the UK release of Woodford Reserve Baccarat Edition - the ultimate expression of its American Whiskey.
This limited-edition release is the world’s finest bourbon, further aged to perfection in hand-selected XO cognac casks at the iconic Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky.
The new launch is the first and only American whiskey to be bottled in Baccarat, combining the age-old traditions of classic French elegance with American spirit. The unique liquid showcases exceptional craftsmanship as crystal makers and distillers, Baccarat and Woodford Reserve transform raw materials into masterpieces.
“The partnership exemplifies Woodford Reserve’s ability to stay at the forefront of innovation within the global spirits industry”, Master Distiller Chris Morris said.
These two celebrated brands have partnered to create a singular item that highlights their legacies. The stunning bottle design evokes the iconic Woodford Reserve bottle silhouette and is engraved with both Woodford Reserve’s and Baccarat’s distinctive logos, while a crystal stopper is adorned with Woodford Reserve’s initials. The unique bottle is housed in a signature Baccarat red box with sleek doors that rotate upon opening to reveal this exclusive bottle.
“We are extremely proud to announce the partnership between the world’s finest bourbon and the world’s finest crystal because both represent craftsmanship at the highest level,” said Mark Bacon, Global Brand Director for Woodford Reserve. “This partnership elevates the category of American Whiskey in the global market.”
“Baccarat is honoured to be the partner of Woodford Reserve for this important premiere in the world of American whiskey,” said Baccarat Group Director, Herve Martin. “We are proud of the work done together and of a beautiful decanter that our artisans crafted inspired by the excellence and savoir faire that both our Maisons cherish.”
