Meet & Greet Bottle Signing with the Distillers

Kentucky Peerless and Copper & Kings Collaboration

Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company and Copper & Kings American Brandy Company will release two limited edition, barrel-finished collaborations. Kentucky Peerless will release a Rye Whiskey aged in American Alembic absinthe barrels. Copper & Kings will release a copper pot-distilled American Brandy aged in Kentucky Peerless Rye Whiskey barrels.

In celebration of the limited releases, Kentucky Peerless will host a bottle signing with both distillers present to share more about the collaborative spirits. The signing event will be Friday, April 17, 2020 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.


“Early on, we took the stance that Peerless would never say never in regards to doing barrel finishes, but we also recognized that it would require time and the perfect partner to peak our interests. We knew that as a young company we had to grow and walk before we could run. We took our time, established our bourbon and rye as respected top-shelf products, and finally reached a point where we could discuss different product innovations. This is when the opportunity to work with Copper and Kings presented itself and we couldn’t have found a better fit. Having been given access to any barrel within their elite portfolio, I devised one of the most unique and flavorful barrel finishes that has ever been made: a Peerless Rye Whiskey finished in a Copper and Kings Barrel-Aged Absinthe [barrel.] I wanted something that would provide the perfect contrasting notes to allow both the rye and the absinthe to be appreciated. Bold, exciting, intriguing, and bursting at the seams with flavor, this crossover is the perfect example of what a few artisans with big ambitions can accomplish when they come together.”
